What Others are Saying About This Course

At the end of the course, each person submits a final reflection – a mindful review of the experience and what they really took away.  Here are but a handful of the most recent. 

First of all, it is probably one of the most challenging course I’ve ever taken online and it has been the most rewarding.

Secondly, Brad has given me such insightful comments on how I can improve my assignments that it has made the challenges even more worthwhile.

I wish you could see the smile on my face. This is because going through this process made me think differently and that is what I need to do in order to grow my business.

Overall what has changed the most for me is that I regularly think of how I can make things better or I’ll try to come up with a new idea for something that already exists.

This course didn’t just change the way I look at my work, but it changed the way I literally look at everything around me.

I have really enjoyed the course and I am changing how I think and tackle new problems on a daily basis. The initial payment that I made is a small investment for a lifetime of more efficient thinking and problem solving.

I have embraced and studied project based learning and design thinking. This course has so many useful aspects that will enhance and complement PBL and the design thinking process already in place at our school.

My biggest take away from this course is that in order to innovate, you are going to fail. It’s part of the process to doing something better. It demystified the word innovation itself.

I learned that paper airplanes did bring out the kid in me. Heck, I stayed later at work just to do this experiment.

My kids and I need to go back to paper airplane school. Our first few designs didn’t get over 6 feet. With a little research we started getting good distances and they had fun working on this with me as my “team”.

I must say I had a love-hate relationship with this course. I realize that the hate part came into play whenever I was pushed outside my comfort zone. Those were the most powerful moments for me.
