Of course designers belong in cross-functional teams. But collaboration can be f-ing hard! Even the best and brightest people struggle to make the most of what everyone on a team has to offer. Join us for this hands-on, highly interactive session led by Idea Farm’s Tamara Christensen. You will have the opportunity to use Lego Serious Play® methods and materials to explore a collaboration challenge you are facing right now. Gain insights about yourself and others while you build new connections and ways of thinking about collaboration. Yes, we will have some time for networking and nosh. And yes, you will play with Lego. Lots of Lego.
Special shout and thanks to our collaborative hosts at Goodmans Interior Structures for their support of the Phoenix design community!
**Please note: Space is limited (so we have enough Lego to go around) so register today!
Tickets are $10 and include snacks and souvenirs.
