The DSIL Course Sequence
This course was designed for the modern day leader with their schedules in mind. We create an environment for rich, manageable, and relevant learning.
9 day Immersion
Expand your Network
Increase your Level of Leadership
Learn to think with expanded perspectives and increase your emotional intelligence along the way. It is more important than ever to understand who you are and how you affect others since leadership today lives amidst hyper-diversity, adversity, and increasingly interdependent systems.
Throughout each phase of the course, the DSIL learning environments and coaches will challenge you to understand more about yourself - both your strengths and also pull out where exactly your areas for growth lie. The DSIL Berkeley- trained coaches will support you along the way so that you can work on the areas that matter the most to your development both in your personal and professional life. Only 15% of the world will grow to reach the highest level of vertical development. Are you one of them?
The Innovation Process of Design Thinking
A well-defined, robust, creative and rapid problem-solving method with many tools embedded within each phase.
The Design Thinking method is an innovation process that allows for deeper and wider understanding of complex challenges and how to build solutions for them. At the DSIL Course, you'll actively learn the process and tools, but also develop the mindsets they require through engaging in design sprints with living companies and enterprises in Southeast Asia using their real challenges as a learning lab.
Ideal for any person looking to set themselves apart, Design Thinking is a tool that has helped facilitate the creation of user-focused solutions in organizations like Google, IBM, Clorox, Nike, UNICEF, and World Vision.
"One of the things I find so amazing about my participation in DSIL was the degree to which I have been able to take the learning and relationships and immediately apply them within my teaching and my private executive education/coaching/consulting work. The depth of the learning and collaboration I know engage in has increased significantly. I've been to MANY trainings in my career, and rarely (if ever) have I found a course so impactful and immediately useful. DSIL has been an excellent investment for me with returns in knowledge, skills and important relationships."
- Dr. Sherwood, Director, IDEA Institute
The DSIL Course taught me much more than d.thinking. It taught me how to become a more resilient leader and to re-connect with my personal goals for this crazy and beautiful planet. "
