To prepare for Ms. Crosbie, please consider the following questions:

  • To make the best use of our time together, begin thinking about times in your life when you innovated.
  • How successful were you?  When was innovation self-initiated and when was it the result of responding to circumstances beyond your control?
  • Did it involve challenging a mindset or deeply held belief you held?
