They have a clear framing
If you want people to perform at their best, they need to understand why their contribution is needed and what is expected from them. A clear framing will help to clarify the basics and define the participant’s role in the process.
The Storyline Workshop itself is only a tool to let participants play their part with confidence and fun.
They keep engagement levels up
The only way to keep people away from their phones, e-mails and instant messaging systems is to keep them busy.
Storyline Workshops do exactly that: participants are always active contributors and group work methodologies keep their brains engaged and away from the daily business tasks.
Two basic rules…
- Max. 18 participants in total = Max. 3 work groups with 6 participants each. No passive bystanders or observers.
- 20 min. coffee break before and after lunch, 90 min. lunch break – that’s over 2 hours of break time to catch up with the really urgent matters.
My recommendation to you…
Invest in a creative & empowering offsite location, if you don’t have dedicated workshop or conference facilities. This will show your appreciation of people’s time and how much you value their input – trust me.
They use “Listening” as a methodology
All Storyline Workshops facilitate the exchange between participants and make listening to each other a key element of the work. This helps to increase the quality of the workshop outcome and nurtures a better understanding between the workshop participants.
