Times are challenging for all of us these days. There are more demands that have been put on us by our employers, our clients, our teams and our partners to be faster, cheaper, more creative, etc. And if you are the one who happens to have the overall responsibility of managing everyone/everything, it’s pretty tough.
Our organizational design friends at NOBL have created a workshop called Collaboration for Creativity - habits & tools for highly creative teams. On Thursday Oct 13th, this interactive session being hosted by Edelman is aimed to help teams find ways to come together and leaders to employ NOBL's Future of Work tools to create more collaboration, transparency and solution-oriented thinking. In addition to growing talent below, leaders need to be able to foster an environment where people can raise their hands, think outside of the box, and fail without fear of “punishment”.
We want attendees to leave this workshop with the tools and discussion tactics to set themselves and their teams up for success in fast-paced, ever evolving workplaces.
So make sure you come ready to put in some work.
