Unlearning- The Challenge of Change
The world we live in requires us to acquire new skills and absorb new knowledge in order to stay afloat. We must learn to SHIFT as things around us are changing. We see this on an individual, team, and organizational levels. We feel the pushback when we try to implement new technology or when we are making an Agile transformation. However, we are leaving out one crucial piece of the puzzle: we are forgetting to forget, or rather, UNLEARN. Even though old habits are hard to break, the more we can unlearn the more likely we are to experience a sense of growth.
In this interactive talk, Jessie will share learnings and unlearnings from her own career, stories from some of the companies she has worked with, and techniques she teaches in order to make breakthroughs and forge ahead.
UNLEARNING (“The Why”)
We are constantly challenged by the need to change in order to remain competitive. Individuals must shift their habits, teams have to adjust their behaviors, and organizations must update their mindsets. As our access to knowledge becomes easier, it is also getting obsolete at a faster pace. It becomes apparent that in order to learn something new, we need to first get rid of - or, unlearn - something old; and the best way to make shifts is through interactive learning.
GAINING NEW SKILLS (“The What”)
Through a series of experiential exercises and techniques, you will learn to:
Assess the obstacles to agility
Challenge the status quo
Build a culture of collaboration and experimentation
Strengthen the capacity to manage uncertainty
Adapt to change
THIS IS FOR YOU (“The Who”)
Anyone can benefit from learning to unlearn. This workshop caters to engineers, marketers, heads of HR and R&D, managers, product owners, c-suites (CEO, CTO, CIO…), designers, agile coaches, and anyone who feels stuck with the need for change.
HANDS-ON FUN (“The How”)We will uncover obstacles and unlearn conventional ways-of-thinking in order to make room for new breakthroughs. We will use design thinking, visual thinking,
and applied improvisation. This workshop is an interactive, fun, and non-judgmental experience like no other!
