It is surprising how little most know about those they work with each day. This truth, leading to a lack of connection, contributes to communication breakdowns, misunderstandings, and sometimes hurt feelings and resignation. It is valuable to take time to recognize how each person contributes to the shared work of the design-build project team for active listening and a healthy work culture, producing greater work.

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. Stepping into Courageous Leadership is the first part of the program, through an interactive demonstration of practices that create deeper empathy and connection between people. The new awareness of the positive qualities (strength/gifts) people bring to a team prepares each one to commit to the mission of that team. 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 skill sets.
  • Understand the importance of connection for supporting clear, productive communication between people.
  • Explore your own core strengths, and how they 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.

This workshop is fully immersive and participatory. You will be welcome to take pictures of your experience, but to keep in full participation, we ask that you wait to use your phone for texts, calls, and email only during the break.
