Description

Are you or your organization stuck in boring, unproductive meetings and can't get out? There is a better way. You can play your way to fruitful, fulfilling meetings, gatherings, retreats, public engagements, conferences and any other kind of group conversation using the Group Works deck of cards.

Like a deck of playing cards, they can be used in many different ways and invoke the spirit of play in planning and facilitating your session. These 91 cards distill the wisdom and insight of a global community of practitioners who have identified the elements that make up any successful meeting and make it easy to plan for success and prepare for the challenges that might arise.

They provide a visual, conceptual and informational framework that supports the design and facilitation of lively and productive group discussions, particularly those involving challenging topics and stakeholders with differing views.

With over 2 hours of content, this course will walk you through the deck and introduce you to every category and pattern it contains, along with additional background and suggestions for their application. You don't need to have a deck in order to take this course but it's hard to imagine that you won't want one after completing it.

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone interested in developing and facilitating productive group collaborations.
