Course Description

Social entrepreneurs exist in environments of scarcity—they’re consistently strapped for time and funding, and yet are trying to tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges, like homelessness, healthcare, and energy access for the poor. What if they could unlock new mindsets and skills to learn how to leverage their constraints and achieve greater impact with less?

In this course, Scott Sonenshein—author of Stretch: Unlock the Power of Less and Achieve More Than You Ever Imagined, and professor of business at Rice University—will use engaging stories and research to teach social entrepreneurs how they can stretch what they have and succeed using the science of resourcefulness.

Scott will present his framework about the key pillars of a stretch mindset along with business case studies and practical exercises that you can use to practice applying a “stretch” mindset in your life and organization. Specifically you will define a "Stretching Challenge" that you're facing in your own life or work and use each of the course exercises and lessons to reconceptualize it while uncovering new or hidden resources that can lead to breakthrough solutions. This course is ideal for anyone facing constraints and obstacles in their life or organization, or who wants to consider their opportunities and resources in a new, more optimistic light.

Who this course is for:

  • Social entrepreneurs, nonprofit employees, or anyone who wants to make meaningful change while facing resource constraints
