I wanted to announce a few big changes in my life of late.
I’ve moved back to San Francisco to be closer to family and the amazing pulse of California life that I know and love.
I am now on indefinite leave from the tenure track at the London School of Economics. We are still working out the details, but I hope to keep working with the Department of Management in some capacity while I’m away, perhaps still teaching on some executive programs like our new Global MiM and the Executive Summer School.
I am also looking for ways to continue “teaching” here in the Bay Area, whether in a classroom or as an innovation coach like I did with Haas@Work. (If you have a need for a facilitator or guest speaker, I’d love to hear from you.)
KICKING ASS & TAKING NAMES!
I’m thrilled to get to focus on the design strategy work I love so much – I’m officially on the job market. (I’m having so much fun visiting friends of friends at SF’s most exciting design firms. Keep the leads coming!)
I am also getting to dedicate more time on my freelance organizational consulting practice, Kickass Creative. I have been involved in some very innovative projects lately, applying behavioral and social psychology research to making things and solving business problems through design (like at Nutmeg, an exciting financial startup I advise in the UK).
I’M STILL UP IN THE WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING….
…but for different reasons than before. I’m a proud new mom of a delightful baby boy, born in London this past August! I miss London (and going out) but couldn’t be happier to get to glimpse the world through my precious baby’s eyes. Going to bed early is the new sleeping in!
That’s the gist of it. I’ll keep you updated as my plans evolve… in the meantime, if you’re in the Bay Area I’d love to hear from you! – Caneel 🙂
