Reframing Collaboration

We work with people every day. Those moments when your team is really vibing feels amazing. Ideas come fast, agreement is easy, and the work becomes greater and richer than it could have been had it been done solo. But, what about all those other times?

Join us as we explore and play with new mindsets of collaboration. Practice unusual techniques. Make space for others in your creative process. Develop solutions to work effectively with the people you have maybe been avoiding.

This interactive workshop consists of three chapters: Meditation, Active Listening, and Co-creation. Together, we will explore and practice techniques from a diverse range of sources including meditation, yoga and pilates, sound baths, and the FBI. We will ground ourselves through meditation and make space for others using empathy-building and active listening before diving into co-creation activities.

Come prepared to have fun, get weird and bring the play back into your teams.
