WE RUN EXPERIENTIAL PROGRAMS AROUND THE WORLD
ACTIVATE YOUR MIND TO CREATE CHANGE. LIKE A MINI BRAIN SPA. SHORT. IMMERSIVE. MIND-BLOWING. SMALL GROUPS. REAL WORLD PROBLEM-SOLVING. CEREBRAL STIMULATION. RICH GLOBAL NETWORKS.
Our intensive experiential programs are designed for hyper busy professionals. You will prepare by completing a short online preparation course, and then after the program you will have access to content covering the major themes of the program.
You will be able to go back for a brain reboot whenever it's needed. Your blended learning experience will help make the complex topics and processes we teach more accessible and easier to retain.
WORKSHOPS FOR PURPOSE DRIVEN PROFESSIONALS
FOR ALL INDUSTRIES AND DISCIPLINES
Our small group, intensive workshops run around the world (including on our regeneration project in Portugal), and are designed for purpose-driven professionals across disciplines.
Over the course of the workshop, you will learn to apply the Disruptive Design Method of mining, landscaping and building for positive social change with a group of like-minded and passionate people.
Arrive with a project or problem that you want to work through (or have one provided by us), and walk away with deeper insights and practical strategies for actively intervening.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
This Disruptive Design Method is a three-part applied method of our Disruptive Design Methodology, a holistic approach to complex creative problem solving. It combines sociological inquiry methods with systems and design thinking approaches to create a method of developing systems interventions that enact social and sustainable change.
Using applied systems thinking, action research and the ideation process, participants will uncover new ways of thinking through the complexity of the issues at hand, and develop disruptive approaches to evolving system failures and externalities.
These workshops and the DD method is relevant for any industry and professional background. The only requirement is that you have a burning passion and desire to actively participate in leading positive change!
