Description

Design Dash: Facilitating Innovation

On 20th November, Skills of the Modern Age and Sqr One are joining forces to bring the Brisbane community three fast-paced, hands-on Design Dash modules covering some of the crucial design and innovation skills of today. Pick and choose the skills you'd like to learn about, or sign up for all three workshops - and make sure you join us for an exciting Design Leadership discussion and a drink in the evening!

Whether you're an innovation coach, internal innovator or transformation leader, your ability to facilitate diverse teams through a structured process is critical to the success of changes you are driving.

A great facilitator is able to define a clear intention for a process, guide people through the process of solving problems together, and redirect people when they notice things getting off track. It’s not about giving your participants all the answers - it’s about creating an environment where they feel empowered to figure it out for themselves.

This bootcamp will combine theory with hands-on practice and real-time feedback to boost your skills as a facilitator of innovation, no matter the context.


What you'll learn:

⚡️ How to design impactful innovation experiences.

Leverage our unique approaches to creating effective workshops and innovative experiences for your teams, from setting clear intentions and success measures from the beginning through to reflecting and embedding your learnings.

⚡️ How to create an innovation facilitation toolkit.

Leverage best practice and develop a customized toolkit for facilitation tools that you can use in your organisation, including running problem discovery sessions, design thinking experiences and Design Sprints.

⚡️ How to facilitate with confidence.

Discover the art of facilitation and learn how to navigate the conflict and complexity when working with diverse groups.

We can't wait to see you there!

This bootcamp runs 1:30pm - 3:00pm, and is one of a three-part series also including Design Dash: Rapid Prototyping and Design Dash: Service Design.

A ticket to any of our Design Dash workshops also comes with a complimentary ticket to our evening event on 20th November, 'Design Leadership: Building Designers of the Future'. Just send an email to amielcortes@sqrone.com.au to get your promo code.
