twt Business workshops
Taking you off autopilot to find your inner child and your creative spirit! Workshops can run from 1hr to 1 week and can be organised for any age, culture, interest, profession. The primary part of the workshop is about Play and opening up to your own creativity. The materials stay pretty much the same, everyday objects, but the outcome is up to you and your team.
Think with Things is promoting a playful way of making abstract ideas more concrete and visual.
Why should our team play with objects when we have real work to get done?
boost your teams energy and participation
Play in the workplace has a quick effect on engagement for all team members. There is nothing like it to increase energy, positive attitude, a sense of belonging and communication.
learn to ask good questions and be part of the solution
Good questions should be part of every conversation. They allow teams to think critically, debate ideas, as well as, see, consider and show alternatives to ideas and approaches.
take the ‘us and them’ out of the conversation
Solve conflicts in team relationships, by representing people and situations with objects. This method takes the finger pointing and blaming away and allows teams to constructively discuss and resolve conflicts.
build a prototype of your teams joint objective.
Get your team to collaborate and communicate about their personal goals. In turn finding connections that link their goals to one team goal that they can all strive for.
design a new way around a problem
Building a problem as a physical construction makes abstract ideas more concrete and tangible opening the minds to new ideas and information.
see your teams variety of visions and talents in a new way
Team leaders can take a lot away from a TwT session as they see and hear their team members speak openly about their own personal ideas and knowledge they bring to the table. This allows them to go away with redefined definition of their teams vision and attributes.
engage everyone to open up and share
Transferring ideas, conflicts and questions to found objects gives everyone the opportunity to slow down and learn to communicate in a more open and engaged way.
