What you'll learn in this leadership training:

It’s no secret; better understanding your customers—their thoughts, motivations, actions—helps you to design better products, services and experiences. Today’s most successful and innovative organizations are looking beyond what people are doing and discovering why their users are making the decisions they make. To do this, one needs a set of tools and tactics to both collect data and pull out insights.

Over this two-day, immersive workshop, dive into design thinking tools for building empathy and unearthing unique customer insights. This learning experience will not only show you how to navigate the often challenging process of understanding human behaviors, but also how to lead this practice with your team back at work. If you’ve ever been to a TDG workshop before, you know that it’ll be practice-based, fun and you’ll leave with tools that you can start using the next day.

What You’ll Leave This Workshop With

  • A wide range of empathy-building activities that include a field visit, observational tools and creative techniques for finding meaningful stories
  • Tools and frameworks for developing insights from the data you collect, such as personas, affinity maps and point-of-view statements
  • How to tackle a real organizational challenge (provided by our partner Burton)
  • Experience facilitating your workshop team through the activities and receiving feedback from peers in a safe practice space
  • An action plan on how you’ll use what you’ve learned in your work and how you’ll roll it out to your team
  • A toolkit with worksheets, sample agendas and how-to guides to help you integrate what you’ve learned into your own projects
  • One-on-one coaching with our training consultants who are helping bring this work to life in organizations like Facebook, Cisco, Acumen, Porsche, and the NYC Department of Education.

Who’s This For
Interested in deeply learning how to lead your team in research and developing insights about your customers for your organization? This workshop is for you.

You don’t have to have design, research or innovation in your title to take this workshop. Facilitating Design Thinking is the perfect workshop for creative rebels looking to change the way their team tackles projects.

No matter what industry you work in or what your day-to-day tasks are, the tools, mindsets and skills you’ll learn will help you be more creative and collaborative. We do, however, recommend a basic understanding of design thinking.

Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows: 

Cancellations made 3 or more days in advance will receive a full credit for a rescheduled date with this provider   

------

Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):

If you’re looking for a refund or class credit for a public workshop, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it’s draconian, but since we aren’t charging an arm and a leg and have to reserve space and purchase materials in advance, it’s hard to deal with last-minute changes.


We also can’t transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!


Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can’t give you a refund less than a week out, even if there’s a wait list for the class.


Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
