When we use this formula people are more engaged. They are open to new ideas, allowing them to absorb and retain information. And then they are able to integrate and apply what they have learned. We use numerous techniques to meet all learning styles.
Tomorrow’s leading organizations are seeking creative competencies to balance their critical reasoning skills and to active innovation. Globalization has paved the way for many organizations to depend upon technology for communication, at times creating barriers to effective dialog and the loss of organizational intelligence. To work truly effectively during the twenty-first century people need to possess a shared working mental model. Mental models explain an overlapping understanding that people have regarding their tasks, objectives, the work structure, the processes, and the strategy they implement as they strive to accomplish joint goals and manage change.
We provide workshops around the globe offering sessions in English, German, French, Spanish and a variety of other languages. In all our workshops we use a variety of culturally appropriate methods that assist the learning process by engaging the whole brain in three dimensional creative thinking. Our trainers design and develop fast passed sessions to ignite innovation through interactive, facilitated hands-on experiences. Our workshops facilitate the communication of ideas and perceptions via storytelling, model building, and innovation mining. Participants gain a deeper understanding of what the organization is working towards along with how others think and perform as they work to achieve stated goals. The fact that people enjoy our process so much they lose track of time is no accident; it is all part of our unique offering—an experience with lasting lessons that people never forget.

Here are some examples:
High Performance Teams
Teams that have a strong, clear, shared mental model perform better and are more productive. Great teams increase companies’ return on their investments and gain more of the market share. Teams functioning at this high level share information easily and make decisions quickly and correctly. They like spending time together and value each others contributions. They adjust on the fly and they work together to help the group succeed. It is that simple.
Teamwork is a term we use; yet many organizations complain their teams are just not functioning at a high level. So how can we promise 100% engagement with our workshops and team development programs? We know that people learn more when they play and engage their whole brains. So to deliver our programs we use a variety of well- researched, creative methods. We have created our own customized applications based in psychology, education, business, art and play therapy, and creative problem solving. These engage, motivate, and help teams create shared mental models, where thinking and innovation happen at deeper and richer levels. Whatever your needs, we use design thinking to facilitate a unique hands-on, interactive experience to get both sides of your brain working. The learning in our workshops is directly transferable back into the workplace. We are not engaging in team-building but rather team development.
Demographics clearly indicate that within the next few years we will see a mass exodus of baby boomers leaving the work force for retirement or retreading. They will be leaving top management and middle management positions vacant. The next generation of leaders will need to think strategically, know how to lead a team, and support innovation. They will need more than just good management skills; they will need creative thinking skills and the ability to collaborate and function at the highest levels. As the world becomes more complicated, doing it all alone is impossible. Leaders must be able to collaborate and engage others as they move the organization forward toward its strategic goals. Our hands-on, innovative workshops help leaders to think in new ways that support their efforts to develop 21st century skills. We will help you to blend your proven business processes with creative and innovative thinking, in order to help you to reach your stated goals. The only thing we can be sure about when we think of the future is things are changing fast. Do not be left behind using old school processes that may not work to solve the problems of the future.
