🤔 What’s really a workshop?
... and why you do need one.
A workshop is a structured, organised way for teams to collaborate, that ensures solid outcomes, all the while avoiding the usual pitfalls of teamwork, such as team politics, asymmetrical knowledge, and differences in working styles.
Group collaboration is an inherently challenging thing for people to do, and without the right set of tools or practices in place to address that every meeting inevitably devolves into a frustrating mess.
Workshops are an antidote to that. They fundamentally change the way collaborative work happens by replacing an unstructured open-discussions with exercises and activities that minimize groupthink and bias, and foster structured discussion, uninterrupted ideation and decision making.
What are your thoughts and experience about normal meetings versus workshops?Have you facilitated a workshop before? Was it more effective than a normal meeting?
I would love to read your input here!
