Our Next Meeting

Book now for Friday 2nd March 2018 for “Tools and techniques for getting things done and collaborating”.

When you are busy with client work and life in general it’s not always easy to find the time to look around and see what’s new out there, that might be of help. This month Jane Parslow and Anne Cannings will share some tools and techniques that they have found useful and interesting.

Collaboration Cards from Let’s Go

We all face challenges that are crying out for skilful collaboration and we know the power of the right conversation to unlock performance. But how to identify the right conversations? The Collaboration Cards have been developed with input from psychologists, artists, sports coaches and business leaders. The purpose of the cards is to put the right conversations on the table, so teams can move towards their potential. First they outline the different dynamics of groups, then they offer up the conversations you need to have.

Jane was recently introduced to the cards and will facilitate a session with a view to helping you uncover how you could use the cards in a variety of situations – with teams or individuals, to kick off or close a project, as a facilitator or a manager. The cards are currently in an extended beta test, so this is an opportunity for TDN members to get a ‘sneak preview’.

A Guide to Getting Things Done

If you have ever

  • sat in a meeting and wondered why you were there or where it was going
  • come away from a client wondering how to capture what they really want from an assignment
  • given your boss a piece of work back, only to be told “that’s not right”
  • delegated a piece of work only to be disappointed at what was produced
  • wondered how to help a team clarify their goals and what they need to do

Then this workshop is for you.

In this experiential workshop Anne will introduce some of the key tools based on the work of Ralph Coverdale, in particular ideas around purpose and planning for success. You will have a chance to learn about them through participation and discussion, as well as an opportunity to apply them to your own situation / project / team, helping you plan and develop a successful task, meeting or project.
