SMARTER TEAMS WORKSHOP

Value

With jokes, optical illusions, and scientific revolutions to guide us, we build clear, structured understanding of paradigm transformation. We learn to identify assumptions, to redefine thinking of ourselves and those we serve. We discover what kinds of cognitive change produces new possibilities...and punchlines!

Sec 1 – Basic History / Theory / Practice

Working through exemplars of cognitive transformations, we construct concept graphs and identify the changes that distinguish scientific theories as revolutionary, jokes as funny, or images as optical illusions. Homework: bring in 2 jokes, 2 optical illusions, and 2 transformative advances for group analysis.

Sec 2 – Solving Current Problems

We practice our new skills on the homework examples, review team project(s), and collaborate with some Wicked Problem Solving techniques. Team members start delivering insights to current challenges with skills they can pass on to customers, clients, and throughout the organization.

Sec 3 – Resilience

Things *will* go wrong. Let's make, identify, and correct our mistakes faster and less expensively with agile creativity. Session 3 dives into current and upcoming projects & engagements. We explore agile creativity and resilience: the synergy generated by harnessing our endurance and leveraging individual empowerment.
