How to make a toast? Systemic workshop on collaboration
How to make a toast is a workshop developed by Tom Wujec.
In this workshop, the goal is to use systemic thinking in understanding perspectives within the group and to solve complex problems through collaborative drawing.
It is useful any of the situations:
- A complex problem that can have multiple opinions and paths with no set solutions. Usually, strategic decision making.
- Where team collaboration is lacking due to dominating members and/or lack of participation or voice of all players
- Different cultures in communication where team members may not be confident or feel safe or want to speak up
We will be using exercises to solve complex issues decided by the participants.
This workshop will be conducted by myself and Miho Nagase. We will cross cultural and language barriers to show how this exercise can work.
