‘I think that without owning something over an extended period of time, like a few years, where one has a chance to take responsibility for one’s recommendations, where one has to see one’s recommendations through all action stages and accumulate scar tissue from mistakes and pick oneself up off the ground and dust oneself off… one learns a fraction of what one can.’
– Steve Jobs
On this high-intensity 3-day workshop, executives and key managers within the organisation apply from first principles thinking to real business challenges:
As well as creating truly innovative solutions, they leave with an extensive problem-solving toolkit, and the skills necessary to apply it going forward.
The workshop is intensive, challenging and certainly no ‘walk in the park’, with assumptions, beliefs and mental models all tested and teased apart continuously. But participants find it immensely stimulating and engaging, and tend to remember it for years after.
The systematic structure of the workshop, along with my particular facilitation style, tend to act as a ‘safety net’ for participants, giving them license to fully release their intuition and creativity.
Some clients have used the workshop as a very productive ‘executive retreat’.
