Getting ready for your next collaborative workshop?
After facilitating hundreds of collaborative project workshops (including design workshops and innovation sessions), we use this simple process to ensure the highest possible engagement from participants.
Before your next project workshop with diverse stakeholder groups, follow these three simple steps:
- Send a “What to Expect” email to each type of participant
- In your email, explain why the workshop is happening
- Explain the need to hear from their unique perspective
You may be surprised at how much impact this simple approach can have. If you try it out, please let us know in the comments below how it went.
