Shift Mindsets

Icon of a team working together


The design labs help you and your teams embrace constraints, put empathy, creativity, and prototyping into action – and walk out with ready-to-use insights. We customize the experience for your team. Or you can start by participating in one of our open events where teams can learn from peers in other organizations. Typical set-up involves a virtual kick-off, access to curated tools, a 1-2 day in-person workshop, and virtual debrief on results achieved.

  • Quickly tackle a shared challenge.
  • Build design-thinking capabilities within your team.
  • Facilitate learning and connection across silos.

Change Behaviors

Create Learning Cultures

Shifting leadership styles and cultures is hard work. It also has an out-sized impact on the results your organization delivers. Support your people with a light and affordable program rooted in our 3C's approach:

  • Coaching: create a coaching culture that allows teams to feel safe, take creative risks, and build long-term capabilities.
  • Connection: cohort and dialogue based learning that breaks down silos and fosters creativity
  • Contextual learning: with skills shifting faster than content can keep up — we help you select and deploy a curated-learning and performance-support approach designed to meet the specific needs of your staff.
