About Event

When we run great workshops, teams can achieve amazing things together. With the support of an expert facilitator, a team collaborates effectively, builds new ideas, moves projects forward and even builds better relationships as colleagues. 🚀

Facilitators work their magic to make this happen.🪄✨

Alison Coward loved the results she got for teams in the collaborative sessions that she facilitated, but often wondered when they finished, why does it have to stop here? Don’t we need all of these outcomes, every day? So she started to explore what facilitators did to make teams gel and how that could be extended beyond the end of a workshop.

She coined the term “Workshop Culture” and has recently published a book on the concept. The book explores the question – “what if every day felt like your team’s most productive away day?” She believes workshops are the key to more happiness, engagement and motivation at work.

In this session, Alison will introduce you to the concept of Workshop Culture, explain its main ideas, and share some of the tools from her book to get you started. 🧠

We’ll explore:

—Why workshops are the solution to ineffective collaboration

—How facilitation skills enable high-performing teams

—A five-pillar framework for building great team cultures
