Designing structured, efficient and solution-oriented workshops and meetings
Clarifying, fighting, negotiating, agreeing, discussing, reviewing, presenting, planning, demonstrating commitment – these are what make workshops exciting and productive – and well-trained moderators a necessity.
The role of the moderator needs two things: human depth and methodological width.
Human depth means firstly the intrinsic attitude that we like to describe as impartiality; secondly, it means the sensitivity that enables moderators to recognise what the right and helpful thing is at any given time. Once what is needed is clear, it then depends on how it is implemented. This is where the methodological width comes into play. After all, if a hammer is all you have, then every problem becomes a nail.
"Moderation is about much more than just cards and flip charts:The attitude on the inside is key."
Design workshops efficiently and with solutions in mind
You're in a role where you help teams or groups to come up with good solutions together. Those involved have different interests and occupy various levels in the hierarchy. Be it in a detached workshop, a change or team development process, a private meeting or even a large event: You must plan the structure of discussions, manage systematically and enable lasting results. This seminar gives you the opportunity to gain practical and transferable experience in mastering such situations, also exposing the limits of a standardised approach to moderation methods.
Being clear is half the battle
If you understand the order clearly then you can plan successful measures and ensure that everyone is happy. By having a precisely clarified order, you can ensure clear contents and a goal-oriented approach. You can be entirely sure that you have recommended the right thing, and that benefits everyone: management, employees, the company, and you.
Developing creative potential and preparing innovative solutions
Advancing digitalisation and the associated increased development speed of new products and services require a new and agile culture of innovation in organisations. Do you want to know what's behind the buzzword "design thinking" and to what extent this method can form a basis for a culture of innovation in your company?
In this seminar, which is carried out over two and a half days, you'll gain a comprehensive understanding of how the design thinking method works, how you can use it to give scope for innovation and what an agile culture of innovation can mean for you and your company. As well as learning the methods themselves, the seminar also focuses on the associated mindset.
Design participatory and efficient online workshops
The classic workshop formats are not being left behind by the digitalisation of the working world: In your role, you are faced with the challenge that it is not always possible or useful to bring a group together in one place. Managing the available technologies competently is important but, by itself, this is not enough to create effective, vibrant online workshops. On the contrary, a well-established understanding of the role of the online moderator, plus the psychological and methodological distinctions of virtual collaboration, is absolutely essential. This seminar enables you to expand your moderation and consultancy competence in the virtual world.
