Labs - SHiFT - SHiFT

SHiFT / LABS What can you do in a day?

Invigorate your career.

Labs are inspirational bursts into the tools of innovation and industry knowledge that allow participants to understand complex systems better, no matter if it’s the global economy or a neighborhood pop-up shop.

Shift Labs are intended to enhance skills and learn how to apply those skills for personal growth. By partnering with futurists, artificial intelligence scientists, social innovation entrepreneurs, and advanced manufacturing experts we will develop and facilitate workshops to involve, inform, and inspire change.

Dare to design your future.

Looking for inspiring ways to explore new skills and prepare yourself for an adaptable and exciting future?

SHiFT Labs are focused, facilitated workshops. Using the design process, strategic foresight, and immersive approaches to help you accelerate your ability to challenge the status quo.

How it works:

Learn new methods

Each day, the events, workshops, and discussions will focus on the collaborative creative process. Topics like community, reflection, craft, and grit are explored through community challenges.

Inspiration for Innovation

Instead of relying on algorithms to build our online group of friends, learn to talk with others and connect on a personal level. This investment in human relationships will provide an actionable personal and professional network.

Explore with friends

Break free from the monotony and set off on an adventure with a fun mixture of personalities and viewpoints. Use this time to experience the world, push yourself, and build memories.

Lead and follow

Being a good leader means knowing when to follow. Learn to embrace others’ knowledge and unique skills so you can create better team dynamics.
