The Mental Spinach Blast Workshop
90 minutes (plus optional social/networking time)
Welcome to speed reflection and collaboration. This fun session is a great way to get everyone thinking, engaging and opening up – from long-standing colleagues to relative strangers. At the same time each participant creates their own action plan. To learn more about this you can read below or download our workshop PDF.
How many participants? 10-40 people
Who? Any team or group looking to promote connection, collaboration and personal development. It could be a team just from your organisation, perhaps your leadership team or a group of younger leaders or high-potential specialists. Or this could be a fun, value-added way to get to know your clients better.
In this 90-minute workshop we help you put something that’s really important to you under the microscope – in fact a microscope with Four Lenses:
the Identity Lens so you’re not “flying blind”,
the Opportunity Lens so you’re generating more “luck”,
the Impact Lens so you’re working smarter not harder; and
the Sustainability Lens to set yourself up for success.
The chosen thing that’s really important to you may be a project (collective or individual) or building a business. Or it may be a life decision or transition. Whatever it is, a Mental Spinach workshop will guide you through a card game that will help you think laterally and creatively about the best way forward.
The workshops are dynamic and interactive thanks to the Mental Spinach card game. As you move through each round of cards you’ll gain new insights and clarity on what's really going on with your project and identify your best moves going forward. You’ll leave with a different perspective on your most precious resources and at the conclusion of the workshop you'll have committed to an action plan. That action plan may be collective or individual depending on the original objectives.
What do you come away with?
- an understanding of the Mental Spinach framework and related tools (valuable for both self-development and wellbeing);
- greater connection and collaboration with others present;
- a clearer path forward on your important project, decision or transition; and
- a complimentary copy of Mental Spinach.
