A great mix of theory and practice. Exercises use each attendee’s issues and contest, leading to real-life changes and actions which are easily begun.
This workshop teaches a framework for change and gives you experience in using that framework to solve real problems in real organizations.
If you have a chance to participate in Esther and Don’s workshops, do not hesitate and go for it. The style of learning throughout the workshop was amazing with its simplicity yet undoubtedly difficult to establish in such short period of time that two days gives us. The setup of the physical space not as much as the emotional comfort that their approach just emitted on its own. They have set up the emotional space for us to be as open as possible and vulnerable yet at the same time have the feeling of safety. I have not experienced that style of knowledge sharing/exchange in a long time. So much information was shared and exchanged without the feeling of material heavy session. It was all done through carefully thought out exercises that almost seemed to mask that this was learning and it didn’t feel like a torrent of data poured on my head, even that it was 😉
Lots of hands-on exercises that help you see and depict a very complex organizational situation in systematic metaphors.
Understand any organization
Years of research in complex fields distilled into an applicable set of principles and toolkits. This workshop will allow you to understand any organization and put in place the work to improve it.
Super valuable if you want to understand and influence the organization you work in!
Assist effecting change
The workshop offers a framework and process to assist with effecting change – in small groups, one-on-one, and at an organizational level – in an experiential and thought provoking way.
Instruction on tools that can be used to help teams and others throughout the organization see the big picture more clearly and how things affect the big picture.
The workshop covers a series of concepts and tools that you can learn and apply to help improve your effectiveness.
Mentally challenging, a lot of great material organized very well.
Sometimes (most times) the problems we face are multi-faceted and complex. The workshop gives tools to pause & observe, analyze the system & determine what experiments you want to take.
Nice way to learn about change together with other interesting people.
A very intense two days, from which you will come away with new tools & insights you can apply in the real world to coach beyond the team.
Powerful / Pragmatic / Contemplation / Experiential Learning
Like a fireside chat / mountain retreat with Esther & Don.
Learning with the best of the best.
* So many tools to use!
* Ways to influence/work with people
* Not about Agile or Scrum 🙂
Great tips on problem visualization techniques.
