Our workshops have one single purpose:
Enable a group of people to resolve a specific challenge they are facing in their daily work – on-the-job, with everyone involved.
This implies that every single workshop is a custom made solution. However, the workshop is always structured along these steps:
Before the workshop
- Crafting the preliminary purpose and desired outcomes
- Discover who needs to participate
- Validate purpose and outcomes with participants
During the workshop
- What is the sense of urgency to address this challenge?
- Validating buy-in and commitment of participants
- Problem analysis: understanding cause and effect
- Provide insights and tools
- Apply those immediately – catch your own fish
At the end of the workshop
- Revisit the main takeaways of the workshop
- Review workshop purpose and outcomes
- Define open issues
- Define action items
- Workshop retrospective
Typically a workshop takes one or two days.
Class room experience
Our workshops are characterized by minimizing use of Powerpoint slides. Instead, we maximize the use of visualizations on flip charts. Static Powerpoint presentations often force a class to adapt their learning to the way the slidedeck was developed. In our approach, we let go of these static slidedecks. This enables us to adapt content we are sharing to the conversation that is actually taking place. We have received great feedback on how our use of a flexible drawing style contributed to an outstanding learning experience. These visualizations will help you recollect the lessons learned through the exercises we did, the conversations we had, and your reflections throughout the training course.
