Random things about workshops

I like doing workshops more than presentations. The main reason is that you get more engagement and if you can convey a concept by activity, it stays with you longer.

A common trait I have noticed is that some people like to have clarity on how the workshop is going to play out, and some don't mind the suspense. Expectation management is important when starting the session.

Feedback on activity-based workshops tends to be positive and sometimes, the participants request a follow up one.

Almost all participants enjoyed the forced interactions and group activities.

Showcasing or talking about team or individual outputs of activities creates a sense of accomplishment and ownership of the concepts/ideas.

Some of the workshops I have done so far include:

Design Thinking
Empathy Mapping
Project Handover
Time Management
