Shape the capacities to act effectively in a VUCA world (Rik Berbé)Consulting Skills, Courage, Disruption, Human Resources, Leadership, Performance, Rik Berbé, Workshops
A workshop to shape the capacities needed to deal with complexity and uncertainty (VUCA).
Organisations are as complex systems, dynamic and constantly in flux. 21e century organisations ask for brave leaders who dare to shape dynamic network structures based on five capacities: Entrepreneurial, Adaptiveness, Resilience, Alertness and Creativity. In this workshop you and your team will learn to assess and develop these capacities to act effectively, to be fit.
How it works? We use a complexity-based framework with colorful canvasses and Duplo bricks to facilitate an interactive workshop. Participants learn how to assess and develop the essential capacities for their team, department or organisation. A hands-on and minds-on ’serious play’ stimulating a conversation, sharing perspectives, finding insights and shaping interventions to navigate in a VUCA world. We will create an environment in which you and your team learn to act effectively and be fit-for-action.
Strengthen collective identity and shared values (Rik Berbé)Collaboration, Consulting Skills, Courage, Human Resources, Leadership, Rik Berbé, Trust, Workshops
A workshop to strengthen the collective identity and shared values of your team, organisation or community.
Many signs indicate that complex human systems are fragmented by traditional management methods and techniques. Organizations and (urban) spaces lost their collective identity and shared values. Imagine you and your team re-discovering these core elements which are essential for development and growth in a fast changing world.
How it works? We will facilitate an interactive and playful workshop in which team members answer two online questions on a tablet. This takes 10 minutes. From their answers, a unique profile with collective identity and shared values is created. This can be a profile of a team, department, organisation, community or even a urban place. The profile stimulates participants to become aware about what keeps them together, what thrives them and how to further develop. During the conversation participants share observations, gain insights and agree on how to take action. It’s this collective experience that creates necessary commitment for action. The basic set-up is easy, it always works.
