CUSTOM EXPERIENCES FOR TEAMS & GROUPS and INDIVIDUALS

They're designed for teams or individuals wanting to improve communication and collaboration, and for organizations experiencing rapid growth.​

Patterns In Play workshops may be half- or full-day, with a focus customizable for your team's needs.

GREAT FOR

This workshop is designed for teams in a collaborative and innovative environment; those inter-dependent on colleagues to get the work done. It’s ideal for teams:

  • experiencing rapid growth and change

  • wanting to improve communication and collaboration

  • who are stuck in unhelpful or harmful patterns

  • ready to re-design their collaborative model for the evolving tech environment

WHAT TO EXPECT

All workshops include playful exploration of hands-on pattern-generation and decision making. Participants  see how their own patterns play out through their interactions with visual pattern tools and through interactions with others. Activities include self-awareness, 1:1, and team dynamics.

  • Self: personal awareness; relationship to rules; decision

  • Partners: interaction and response to others, sharing the territory

  • Groups: group agency, decision making, building trust and safety

  • As the workshop progresses, participants raise awareness of some of their unconscious patterns, and teams start to visualize, bypass, and re-imagine pathways to conflict resolution, collaboration, and innovation.
