Workshop Description

Taking time to recognize how each person contributes to the shared work of the design-build team, the Courageous Leadership program provides workplace and project team members with a greater sense of mission and connection, resulting in high levels of engagement and performance.

In this initial part of the program, Stepping into Courageous Leadership, a deeper empathy and connection between people, and new awareness of the positive qualities people bring to a team, is gained through an interactive demonstration of practices that prepares each member to commit to the mission of that team.

This workshop is fully immersive and participatory. Using the LEGO® Serious Play® methodology team members will experience how to deepen their connection with others in a safe and fun series of conversations.

Learning Objectives

  • Experience a practice you can apply to build alignment among design-build team members with diverse personalities and skillsets.
  • Understand the importance of connection for supporting clear, productive, communication between people.
  • Explore your own core strengths, and how the support your work on projects and within organizations.
  • Gain a full appreciation for the shared contributions that lead toward making a meaningful impact through work.
