4 half days online. Swedish/Norwegian language in November 2019. To schedule this workshop in English, please contact us

Health and balance is necessary for organizations to develop and grow. When chosing to create a life nurturing climate, this has a big impact on people´s performance and collaboration. When the climate is encouraging and energizing the organization will perform at its best.

When an organization enters into a transformation process, it could be good to know where to start and to have a baseline for measuring achievements. This workshop will provide you with both, which is important knowledge when planning to redesign or reorganize the organization. The starting point is a diagnosis and with it comes a map for regeneration of health and balance. Here you will use the same multifunctional tools that were used in the diagnosis.

In this workshop you will

  • Learn a holistic way to do a diagnosis of the present state of the organization
  • Discover what is already in place and what needs to be removed, replaced or cleansed
  • Learn to engage people in the diagnosis process and invite them to contribute ideas for the future
  • Learn a set of simple, multifunctional tools used for the diagnosis, for periodical checkpoints and for adjustments to maintain the desired state of the organization
  • Discover a way to achieve a life nurturing climate that supports organizational growth
  • Create your own plan for doing the diagnosis in your organization, during or after the workshop

The online workshop has 4 meetings for questions and discussion, where we support you to become familiar with the tools. Between the online meetings time is needed for homework and selfstudies. During this time we will be available for discussion through email. We use Qiqochat for the online meetings, which includes video, microphone, breakout rooms and whiteboards. We will use Whole Person Process Facilitation to facilitate the meetings, since this process provides the opportunity to learn in your own best way and to dive deep into the topics together with other participants.
