Enhance Collaboration

Collaboration isn’t about sitting around a board table dissecting spreadsheets. It’s about a team’s ability to work together, explore problems and find creative, sometimes radical, solutions. Whether this is in a meeting optimised for different points of view, encouraging diversity of thought, or being able to handle ambiguity, teams who talk achieve better results.

What leaders will explore

  • Setting up environments for collaboration
  • Using strategies to prevent ‘groupthink’
  • Empowering the thinkers and reflectors
  • Handling dominance and ‘interrupters’
  • Methods: fishbowls and break out groups

What leaders will apply

  • An ability to set up collaborative spaces
  • Strategies for better discussions and decisions
  • Skills to empower those not often heard
  • Skills to temper dominant group members
  • Methods for more collaborative meetings

The Thinka team work hard to understand your desired outcomes and design valuable content to help you get there. The facilitation and delivery of their workshops are as energetic as they are informative and the participants walk away knowing what it is they need to do.

Supported by multimedia, attractive takeaway pages and practical strategies for using back on the job – our in-person workshops build a formidable bridge between exploration and application. We have a 10 person minimum for an in person workshop.

    Q

    Thinka believes that every learner needs to walk away being able to do something differently once they’ve engaged in a learning solution. The real power is in every individual applying their learning. Our behaviour-based methods, supported by the latest research, are key to making the steps for change relevant and realistic.

    Thinka supports with methods like storytelling, experiential activities or rich questioning, but ultimately, we know the integration between solution and real world is the most crucial part of the learning experience. That is why we look for ways to ‘build a bridge’ between the solution we provide and what happens back out on the job.

    Whether it’s an application template, a set of strategies, some tips or a ‘how to’ model – we work hard to provide every learner with not just information but the tools they need to make a real difference.
