Visioning a new future – especially useful as you think about future plans and want to step back and listen to what wants to happen now through you and your business.

Outcomes: Deeper discussion about the purpose of the business/organization and what’s important to all stakeholders. A statement of vision or close approximation is a common outcome.

Communications Theatre –This model takes participants “from Battleground to Playground.” It discusses four levels of communicating: Drama, Problem solving, Play, and Reverence.

Even the observers learn the model by watching it acted out. The overall goal of the model is to move from battleground to playground in our interactions and to operate more in the realm of creative possibility during the workday.
Outcomes: Laughing! Participants now have several different ways to approach the same scenarios when they leave the off-site. The whole team has a common language about how they might approach any situation with a client or with a colleague.
