On the 19th February Jenmark Business Solutions with the support of Central Coast Industry Connect held a half day workshop called “The Collaboratory”. The Collaboratory Series is a transformational, social learning lab that introduces forward-thinking businesses and professionals to effective, science-based modalities that build capacity within individuals, teams and organisations to collaborate more effectively, to think creatively, act resourcefully, foster entrepreneurship and innovate faster.
Facilitated by Scott Winter of Brain Friendly Dynamics in the USA, the maximum number of 28 people from 10 organisations were involved in the four hour experience which included playing the “FreshBiz Game” simulation providing many social interactions, challenges and learning experiences. The application of experiential game theory unlocked the 4 key elements of co-creating a conscious business ecosystem in which to live, work and play.
- Create and leverage the collaborative power of high trust relationships.
- Identify the personal and relational blocks that often sabotage collaboration, innovation and business success.
- Learn how to implement ‘we-centric’ processes to improve team performance. Transform from a transactional mindset to a radically collaborative and innovative mindset.
- Build a toolkit of “cutting edge” leadership, team, and stakeholder engagement skills.
CCIC engaged Jenmark to deliver the workshop as a pilot program that focuses on driving collaboration within business, internal and externally and the region as a whole. We will be looking as to where we will take the workshop to drive regional collaboration.
