Event description

Description

People want to spend more time on meaningful work and with teams who are engaged in making that happen. Projects where people's skills and practice strengths are working well together to encourage people to learn, improve and thrive.

People want organisations that are energetic, collaborative, purposeful and visionary.

However today:

Organisations are stuck in the industrial age.

Where people are treated as robots in silos on a production line. But people are not machines. We all get lost in the noise, speed and deliverables of the day to day work that we forget about why we are working on a project in the first place.

This results in feeling purposeless, stressed, unhealthy and in a state of “sleepwalking”.


What if we could:

  • Create a project ecosystem that encouraged people to thrive?
  • Use project stories to help us harvest practices?
  • Identify core practices to help people do the work that matters?
  • Define and practice "meaning" for self, team, project and organisation to support continuous learning and tactical and strategic clarity for all?


This workshop will explore 5 x elements:

  1. The "Capability" problem (inside and outside organisations)
  2. The "Make Meaningful Work" Journey - awaken, connect, overcome and sustain
  3. "Sparkle Sessions" to teach, learn, make, practice, reflect and action
  4. "Learning Portfolios" to deal with the "Capability" problem statement
  5. "Practices" and "Conditions" to create a "Meaning Canvas" for individuals and teams


This workshop includes:

  • A free lecture in Bologna on 12 October 2018 (venue and address to be announced soon)
  • A "Journal" to help you log your stories and observations
  • A "Meaning Canvas" to demonstrate individual and team value
  • A practical "Plan" to sustain individual and team practices to nurture meaning and a culture of continuous learning
  • 1 hour lunch included
  • Breaks for drinks and snacks
