Who is the course for?
Leaders, Catalysts and Facilitators. Anyone who is taking responsibility for holding a co-creative meeting. Where you have a date in the diary with your name next to it. To design it, run it and to make it a success. You’re on the hook! You’re a** is on the line.
What does it help them do? Learn how to do?
Go through step by step, on how to run a powerful co-creative meeting, taught by a team of professionals who know how to do it and have the battle scars to prove it.
Everything taught has been learnt through the school of hard knocks. We’d like to save you the pain, so you can take it further…and then please teach us.
Why is that beneficial to them?
This helps make meetings matter. There is no need any longer to let poor meeting process paralyse progress. We have the theory, method, science and practice all stacked in favour of knowing what to do. We need to do what we know. We’re not saying this is THE process. We are saying it is A process, for sure.
This takes away the pain of a shit meeting – a pathetic experience between intelligent people experienced as boredom, frustration, anger and/or exhaustion.
It takes away the hopelessness of the team you are a part of. As much as you think it is about them, You are the one who is in it as much as anyone.
All the pressure for having to have the answer will drop off your shoulders. One graduate of The Art of Co-Creation, initially thought his job was to present the best answer for the problem everyone was gathering to address. After the course he saw that it was not his job to provide the answer. Instead, his job was to provide the method everyone will follow for them (all) to come up with the solution together.
This method draws out poor behaviours like fist banging the table or being too meek. In a non-threatening way, people are invited to sit back and listen in the beginning and absorb. People then then talk over what they’ve heard, what they think and feel (based on what they know) and look for the best solution fit for them all to deliver together.
The method is basic. The art of running it is not!
Can you make a meeting matter?
If only every meeting could produce the best solution.
If only every meeting could find a flow.
If we could find a way through the swamp, what would be the 3-4 steps that would get us through?
These answers are best seen through the collective. Switching on the collective is challenge and opportunity…given the right support.
Productivity rises, the vibration of the team elevates, a culture is created and you find yourself in a groove! Learning to re-switch it on, is then part of the solution too.
If these problems are not solved, survival of the fittest sets in, whether it manifests as aggressive behaviours or passive. To have constructive, creative and sometimes magical meetings happen, takes skill, design and intent. All possible if given the correct conditions.
We believe, this course serves that purpose. From Introduction to design principles, course outlines to flipchart toolkits, video examples of teams in co-creative work to small core teams designing a meeting from scratch. This video based course, linked with our growing co-creative community, is a real solution when you don’t know what to do or even where to start holding a co-creative meeting/event. This is just right for you.
Bonus… Graduates enter the growing community of practitioners happening worldwide. Monthly community calls can be attended by all attendees and graduates of The Art of Co-creation. Conversations with the course leaders is also possible too on request.
