Innovation

Everyone Has Value To Bring

Are you truly tapping into everyone’s innovative genius? Or are you only really hearing from the most vocal members of your team? Mapping people’s creative force and exploring the magic that happens when you combine each person’s differences is an eye-opening, mind-changing and group-transforming experience.

In this 90 minute, high-impact workshop you will:

  • learn how innovative thinking really works
  • uncover the true innovative potential in your group
  • harness each person’s creative thinking to maximise collective potential

Our 4 step process:

  1. Prior to our lab session we map your group’s thinking using our unique and proven methodology
  2. We begin our session by showing you how thinking actually works: you will immediately recognize it once it is revealed to you
  3. Next we practice using thinking in the most constructive way (Walt Disney used this method)
  4. Finally, we show you how to integrate this method into your everyday work. We make it stick!

The result:

  • increased individual confidence and self efficacy, the key to team happiness
  • confidence in each other’s role in innovation
  • newfound interpersonal trust
  • improved resonance and cohesion across your team
  • improved communication practices (and they continue getting better)
  • a clear map of potential challenges and how they can be negotiated successfully

Case Study — Flashpoint Communications

A well-established boutique PR company was facing a bit of a creative crisis. The three founders, entrepreneurs at heart, found themselves being relied on by their team, writers and client relations managers by nature, to be the creative engines and idea generators for the whole firm. This left the founders feeling exhausted and overly relied on. Conversely, the team was feeling frustrated by their inability to innovate solutions as a team without the leadership (and dominant voice) of the founders.

Thanks for the eye opening session. The team is energised by all the discovery that occurred. We are already practicing being mindful of our mindset(s).

Collaboration

The Dynamics of Group Excellence

Where would you rate your team on a scale from 1-10 on flow: the result of well-orchestrated collaboration?
 It’s all about the dynamics in teams and groups. Teams with high collaborative intelligence know how to harness these dynamics and put them to good use. The result is flow, and you can feel it. Do you?

In this 90 minute, high-impact workshop you will:

  • learn what is driving most dynamics experienced individually and as a team
  • build empathy and skills to bridge the natural gaps in communication and understanding
  • begin the rewiring of your ‘group think’ to harness everybody’s genius in great collaboration

Our 4 step process:

  1. Prior to our lab session we map your group’s thinking using our unique and proven methodology
  2. We begin our session by showing you how thinking actually works: you will immediately recognize it once it is revealed to you
  3. Next we explore how to re-think the forces at work into powerful collaborative dynamics
  4. Finally, we show you how to integrate this method into your everyday work. We make it stick!

The result:

  • a new way of thinking together that leverages the full collaborative potential in your team
  • increased individual confidence and self efficacy, the key to team happiness
  • confidence in each other’s role in the collaborative effort
  • improved communication practices (and they continue getting better)
  • a clear map of potential team/group/dynamic challenges and how they can be negotiated successfully

Case Study Better—Energy Systems

A frustrated team could not seem to rein in the creativity of their future thinking, visionary founder. He kept reinventing his original idea; kept changing things. The team, who were well suited to take the company to market and were exactly who the founder needed—analytical and process oriented thinkers—was frustrated and rebellious. He had hired the right team but was failing to open up the ‘space’ for them to do the necessary work of executing.

I tend to be a skeptic. I’ve attended lots of collaboration/team-building workshops. But this got my attention like none other. It nails people’s work styles and the group dynamics. Fast, accurate, predictive, prescriptive and most importantly for me as a COO, actionable! This I recommend for any company.

Solution

Game Changer—Learn how to play your cards right!

Getting things to work well is often about understanding people and their differences. 
Colleagues, team members, employees, customers, and even contractors may share a common purpose with you but they probably have a different point of view; this can create unnecessary frictions in communications and misaligned expectations.

In this 90 minute, high-impact workshop you will:

  • learn what shapes people’s points of view
  • learn how to use MindTime cards to identify individuals’ points of view
  • learn two new ways to use MindTime cards to explore challenges and find solutions
  • learn how to play a winning hand every time

Our 4 step process:

  1. In the first 20 minutes we build a simple model of people’s different points of view
  2. We learn the basics of using MindTime cards, a way to discover these differences
  3. We identify a real challenge in front of you and practice playing your cards right
  4. Finally, we make it stick by integrating this innovative method into your everyday work

The result:

  • a new way of thinking about people and their points of view
  • increased personal confidence in your ability to proactively solve people challenges
  • increased empathy for the people around you and their differences
  • a new language that reveals and deals with our differences in a positive, productive manner
