Join RSA US for an interactive discussion on sensemaking. We all do sensemaking all the time but how can we make sense differently? What tools and techniques can we use to help us be more innovative, resourceful and successful?

Our minds are incredibly powerful tools. Evolution has optimized the brain to avoid or overcome danger, conserve energy, and learn from others. When its full powers are unleashed the brain is an amazing tool of innovation, connection, and exploration. However, our survival instincts often get in the way and prevent us from accessing the creative and resourceful powers of our own brains. In other words, sometimes our brains prevent the very success we desire.

For this event, Mitch Weisburgh, FRSA, will be in conversation with Tammie Schrader, exploring how we can shift our brains to their most resourceful state. Attendees are encouraged to share their experiences and participate in the discussion.

This event is talking place on Thursday, June 16 between:

  • 9 - 10am PDT
  • 12 - 1pm EDT
  • 6 - 7pm BST

This event will be recorded.

RSA US Virtual Salons usually occur on the fourth Thursday of each month; they aim to create open dialogue and a space for RSA US Fellows to connect across geography over the issues of our times. Join a Salon to get to know other RSA US Fellows and our interests, passions, and perspectives. Salons are supported through the moderation of a volunteer to ensure that a diversity of voices are heard. We invite all Fellows to join this discussion to deepen the ways we can connect with each other across the country!
