A digital compass! Give it a try and let me and its creator, Hieu Nguyen, know how it works for you!
Pictured in the banner above (by educator Kevin Day while on a school retreat), this cuts and folds to a business card size. Take it anywhere, use it anytime! It offers simple guidance and an example. Thanks to Timothy Hall for this idea!

Please find slides we used and a set of examples and provocations we had available to show based on Q&A. We began by activating our underused human "tools", recognizing our landscape of challenges as leaders, and digging into a challenge with a partner using the Compass.
I'm honored to have the last chapter the book Taking Design Thinking To School in edited by Shelley Goldman and Zaza Kabayadondo of Stanford University’s Research in Education and Design Lab (Routledge, November 2016).
Short blog post with practical tips, written for the design collaboration platform Mural.ly (online sticky notes!), which has kindly included the Compass as one of its framework templates (along with Business Model Canvass, Empathy Maps, and others).
In response to Nicola Chin's thoughtful questions, including: Tell me about your passion project? Who's shoulders are you standing on? Your greatest learning? Challenge? Fear? Risk? Fun? How are you organizing people for this project?
Bogata-based educator Chris Davis got curious at the end of SXSW Edu in March 2017 about the background of design thinking and my work, and asked me to sit and chat with him for his podcast. Note: the sound dramatically improves at 16:08. .
Recorded in August 2015 for their Results May Vary podcast about what would happen if we used Design Thinking in our daily lives, Tracy Deluca and Chris Waugh ask great questions about the development of the compass. While it has evolved considerably since, the discussion is great and the core questions still hold.
1-2 minute videos that guide you in feeling, and going deep, in each space of the Compass. This a picture of all the cues given, one at a time, in the videos.
