Workshops are run individually on separate occasions – there maybe a series of each types with the same group, or repeated with different groups. Workshops are customised in content and process for your particular context.

Before starting a series of workshops, we meet with the Team Leaders to understand the motivations and drivers for making change. We also learn about cultural considerations for the team and broader organisation – this helps us customise truly valuable workshops to serve you best.

 

Workshop 1: Design the changes to shape and make

Explore the problems and opportunities for having a more effective and engaged team, and doing more effective productive work in service to others. Identify a list of possibilities to enact or experiment with, and outcomes to keep in mind. Define the team conditions and experiences that enable each person to make sense of changes and find their place to take part.

It will enable you to:

  • Gain collective perspective of the vision for changes
  • Have team members contributing meaningfully to shaping desirable changes
  • Be confident in the relevance and connection of the changes and outcomes for the team
  • Have a strong base to specify activities and responsibilities for making change
  • Achieve increased team readiness to actively participate in making change

 

Workshop 2: Design the changing experience

With a known list of desired changes and outcomes, shape the approaches to making it real and getting it done. Define the actions (including experiments) and responsibilities of individuals and the team, to work towards the desired results. Making it an engaging and meaningful experience for all.

It will enable you to:

  • Gain collective clarity about the actions and responsibilities for making change
  • Be confident that the changing experience is guided by the right principles and in consideration of organisational constraints
  • Achieve increased accountability of team members for their part in making change happen

In Workshop 2, we utilise Questo’s unique Change Design Principles for shaping the changing experience.

 

After workshops we check in with the Team Lead(s), to get their sense of how things are travelling. It’s a time for contemplation, and sometimes adjusting perspectives about what’s actually happening and what’s desirable. It’s an opportunity for new knowledge to emerge and process the emotions of messiness that can occur when people are working and changing together.
