Become Adaptable

Why train skills in adaptability in your team?

Adaptability is an underrated skill. So many of us get stuck in the ‘same old, same old’ thought patterns because of a fixed mindset. But what if we could change this? What if we could boost our cognitive flexibility and think on our feet in more agile, responsive ways? It means we’d be better able to deal with ambiguity and tackle challenges with that creative edge.

What teams will explore

  • Cognitive flexibility and the future of work
  • Challenging fixed mindset tendencies
  • Critical thinking and perspective taking
  • Welcoming ambiguity and breaking through it
  • Link between adaptability and innovation

What teams will apply

  • A grasp of adaptability as an essential skill
  • Strategies for challenging fixed mindsets
  • Practical tools to inspire critical thinking
  • Strategies to encourage perspective taking
  • Skills to help the team handle ambiguity

Ben from Thinka has an inner drive coupled with a visionary motivation that drives himself and those around him to excel. I have had the fortune to work with Ben on two separate occasions and each time found myself giving more than I thought I had and receiving more than I thought I needed.

    Our in-person workshops maximise opportunities for robust conversation, experiential activities and intensive group work. This is no ‘death by PowerPoint’ experience – our facilitators are skilled in presenting and leading immersive experiences that get the most out of people. 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.

    Our virtual workshops breathe fresh life into the online experience with their almost ‘radio show’ feel. Our expert facilitators use a combination of multimedia, questioning techniques and break out activities to target micro-skills – with a focus on application. Supported by an online platform hosting custom-built workshop materials, participants can be assured of a lively, dynamic session that has a distinct bias to action. We have a 6 person minimum for a virtual workshop.

The skills are geared toward increasing personal and professional effectiveness and are transferable across different contexts – making them last as they move through their career development journey.
    This audience includes ‘middle management’ leaders who support team members in capability building. The skills are geared toward increasing leadership effectiveness and driving performance in team members in modern work contexts. These skills are flexible and built to grow with individuals as they evolve in their leadership journeys.

    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.
