Whether you’re a remote-veteran or hoping it's just temporary, working better while apart is top of mind these days. In this new normal, with an increasingly large number of teams now working remotely, Talent Development professionals are facilitating virtual workshops, leading virtual meetings, running virtual focus groups, and hosting virtual design sessions before building training material to be delivered virtually!
All of this requires Remote Facilitation Design skills.
During this hands-on session you will have the opportunity to learn some fundamentals of designing remote facilitation experiences, may they be virtual meetings, working sessions, or workshops, and prototype solutions to your remote-facilitation challenges in real time.
During this session, you will quickly develop skills in designing remote experiences by actually trying it out yourself during the session.
This is a highly interactive session! You will be using Zoom to join the session and then you will be participating in the workshop via Mural, a virtual collaboration 'whiteboard'; essentially learning by doing.
About our Facilitators:
Eric Morrow is the co-founder of Staircase Strategy (see below) and is a facilitator, design strategist, instructor, and author. He loves to partner with fellow leaders eager to use Design Thinking to solve complex problems in the world and in their organizations, and write about his experiences in clear language that democratizes learning.
His work has focused on the challenges of innovation in large corporations, including Fortune 100 companies like Capital One, Walmart, and Google. He is most alive when working with teams applying quality user data to impactful product decisions. He is a human-centered educator, and has taught with General Assembly, the University of Oklahoma, and CU Boulder. In education he continues applying and advocating for innovation, specifically experimental and data-driven approaches. At IBM he led design thinking projects that aligned executive teams and engaged essential customers. Eric’s past lives were as a marketer, which he wrote a book about, and a lawyer, which he didn’t.
His friends look to him for ski-lift conversations, online dog training and access to a life-long puppy, and a reminder to take life one day at a time.
Hadassah Damien is a strategist, technologist, and facilitator deeply rooted in progressive finance, civic tech, and DEI. She solves meaningful problems with groups by leveraging design thinking, speculative games, agile methods, participatory pedagogy, empathy, and nonviolent communication.
Her friends look to her for anything that has numbers, a great story, and everything they’d ever want to know about Dolly Parton.
