Training topics we offer (you can mix and match!):

  • Leading a Dynamic Cross-Generational Workforce: For the first time in US history, there are 5 generations in the workforce! Each generation holds a unique view of authority, role of work, and relationships. This workshop explores all five generations and offers opportunities to explore how to enable a strong and healthy multigenerational workforce. Additionally, this session can be customized to speak specifically about the next generation of leaders (Gen Y, Gen Z, and Gen Alpha).
  • LEGO(R) Serious Play(R) For the Organization: Certified through the Association of Master Trainers in the LEGO(R) Serious Play(R) methodology, our facilitators will develop a customized, interactive workshop designed to guide your team through solving a complex challenge currently facing your organization. This option can be great for annual retreats, kick-off events, and off-sites. Some examples of topics include building a team identity, organizational vision, strategy, and building leadership awareness. No LEGO building experience is necessary, just an open mind and a posture for serious play.
  • A Day of Play: How Play Can Produce Serious Results for Your Organization- Spend a day away exploring how play can aid in building creative capacity, help solve complex organizational challenges, and promote 100% participation from your employees. The day will include the following:
    1. Morning Session: Creativity and creative confidence for organizational Innovation
    2. Explore the Museum of Play
    3. Debrief Museum Experience and Lunch
    4. Activities to Apply Play to Organizational Challenges
  • Design Thinking: Solving Complex Challenges in the Organization- Do you wonder why organizations seem to keep solving the same problems over and over again and hoping for a different result? This workshop introduces you to a new way of thinking that is built on human-centered design (understanding the user, not just the problem). Using empathy and building the muscle of creative confidence, each participant will gain insight and tools into a creative problem-solving approach. Leading Through Change- This training centers on understanding change and how it affects you personally while providing tools for navigating the change effectively in your organization. This is a great workshop for individuals and teams who are in the midst of a large organizational change or preparing for a new season ahead.
