All of us charged with enhancing creativity are facing increasing pressures to accomplish more with less time and fewer resources, and yet are asked to be more innovative and deliver measurable outcomes. In this lively workshop participants will discover how high-engagement organizations across sectors are transforming their high-pressure workplaces into playspace for innovating, learning and changing. Meyer shares inspiring stories and best practices of organizations that are finding fresh approaches to engagement using limited resources, while directly impacting the bottom line and strategic goals.
This workshop will balance experiential learning with case study reflection, as well as creative collaboration.
Participants will leave with a new understanding of the business and learning case for attending to the spaces we create for engagement in innovating, learning and changing, and ideas to bring playspace to life in their own organizations and practice.
The registration fee of $45 includes a copy of Meyer’s new book, From Workplace to Playspace: Innovating, Learning and Changing Through Dynamic Engagement, which she will sign after the workshop.
