How and what you will learn

You learn how to design a workshop that is bound to be a success, and how to lead a team through the workshop stages with confidence: Understand what success looks like before the workshop starts, and combine the most suitable activities for the desired results and available time and people. In the workshop, you explore activities to generate options, and how to make smart decisions without lengthy discussion. Following, we show you how results can be made more specific so that the workshop team develops a common language and understanding of the selected result. Any workshop should end with a clear commitment to the next steps and responsibilities. Based on a proven template, we help you to follow up after the workshop or meeting so that actions are taken. We will also reflect on how to apply the concept to your specific topics and workday, and you have the chance to directly clarify any potential questions.

Facilitation training

In our workshop, you work together in a team with 3-4 other participants in order to directly experience the activities on real workshop challenges. As a whiteboard and workspace, we use Mural and Zoom breakout sessions.
