What do you like?

Tuesday, 09 August 2016 by

Ask your workers join groups of 5 to 10 people. Have them make a list of the 10 things they like about the company or of working there. Merge the different lists. Can you create a single one with the items included in the majority? Can we make a workers’ manifesto? It could be the

How do you like me?

Tuesday, 02 August 2016 by

Even when I like someone very much, there are always things I like about their behaviour and others that I don’t. Let workers ask these 2 questions: When do you like me? When do you dislike me? With these questions they can gain awareness of their behaviours and those of others. In addition it can

What do you think?

Tuesday, 26 July 2016 by

In class there are always different opinions. We each have our way of seeing reality and perceiving situations. Make sure that that is not a problem but an opportunity. Organize an activity where participants can discuss different perspectives. Moreover, it would be interesting even they had to defend ideas that do not share. Thus, they

Where is it?

Tuesday, 19 July 2016 by

We usually distribute materials among participants at a training. Do participants know what they can find inside? Do they read it? An activity that can help participants become familiar with the material and content is to ask them to search data. For example, ask them to find the page on a certain topic, or to

Cause and effect

We often forget to say how productivity and can be improved. To who? To everyone. We forget to tell both managers and workers. “When I have a wound I do my job worse” or “When I’m frustrated my mind is not at work”. When designing posters and infographics on labour rights or health and safety,

What can you learn from me?

What could we learn from each other? Ask a supervisor what they would like to learn from each of his or her workers. Do the same with the workers: what could they learn from their supervisor? and from other colleagues? This activity may help each member value the qualities of each other and their contributions

All in all

Tuesday, 28 June 2016 by

As we always say, we can know if someone has learned something if they are able to talk about it. Let participants summarize in their own words the contents covered in class. One way is to ask working groups to spend 2 minutes (they do not need more!) preparing a summary for the rest of

What should I do?

Tuesday, 21 June 2016 by

We often do things thinking they are going to please the other person and while not doing what would really make them happy. Why don’t  we ask them? For example: “What should I do so you trust me? What should I do to win your trust?”. The answers will surprise you, some will be much

Open

Tuesday, 14 June 2016 by

To class you must come open to change. Open to new ideas and to assimilate them. How do you ensure an environment in which people are not defensive? How do you ensure their collaboration? By listening. A lot. By understanding their concerns, recognizing the challenges they will encounter. By never denying their reality nor criticizing

Be specific

Tuesday, 07 June 2016 by

When we express ourselves using “general terms”, we run the risk that those listening do not really know what we mean or what to do. For example,  “you never do it right”, “don’t do it like that”, “I love your work,” “you should try to be like him”. None of these give us much information.
