Thinking about thinking


Are you an ideas person? Or do you excel at pulling together the pieces of a project?  Do you remember best when ideas are spoken to you or written down?

Understanding how you work best has the potential to simplify your work days and reduce friction within yourself and with others. This workshop explores the different ways people learn, communicate, problem solve and organise. You will identify your own best practices while gaining insight into how others work. Through discussion, self-reflection and hands-on activities you will develop your own framework for thinking and doing and walk away with practical strategies to improve your work practices.
