This course on Creative Challenge has been curated in the program to offer participants an opportunity to push the boundaries and challenge their own status quo by establishing a stretch goal, planning an intervention to address the challenge and working to execute it. It is imperative in designing the performance metrics or rubrics that participants incorporate a 50% likelihood that they will NOT achieve the intended goal. This will ensure the true nature of 'stretch' and 'growth'. Participants will largely be self-directed in executing the plan but will have access to guidance of a coach, industry or academic mentor.
