Event description
Train yourself to navigate complexity, develop your emotional intelligence and creativity, connect with your inner self

About this event

In a world and business environment where the problems are complex and not only complicated, the exclusively logical and efficiency-based approach of the left brain is no longer enough and we must begin to take care, develop and use more our right brain and its creative and interpersonal abilities too. Unfortunately, people are not much used to it. That is why we have developed an art-based learning approach where we leverage artistic metaphor to train the right hemisphere of the brain.

In this session you will experience a technique called contemplative observation: a new way of looking at a painting where the artwork is used as a mirror of our inner self and stimulates deep conversations among participants and sharing of insights and different point of views. By doing so participants will develop their empathy and sensitivity, practice generative dialogue and active listening and learn how this can enhance co-creation and interpersonal relationship: all very critical aspects for any facilitator, manager and person.

  • Intro: Why art exposure can be helpful in a complex environment and how art can help training our right brain
  • Artistic Check In
  • Contemplative observation of the painting
  • Facilitated discussion among participants
  • Key Takeaways and applications in your profession & life
