We make people take action through on-the-ground interventions
First and fore most our goal is to make people more resilient, self-confident and creative by empowering them to face their uncomfortabilities, and get out of their comfort zone.
This allow people to create actual change about specific themes for their direct surroundings, communities and organizations.
With on-the-ground interventions we refer to workshops, talks and events.
We give workshops that make people take action on solving specific business, people and communication challenges. Our favourites are “One Step Further”, a co-creative approach to problem solving, and “Rapid Change”, an out-of-the box flexibility challenge where participants are put to test their ability to adapt to new situations.
We give talks that make people take action about important themes. Here our favorites: diversity, corporate social responsibility, deal with change, millennials and youth empowerment, innovation, getting out of the comfort zone, talent development, entrepreneurship, civic engagement.
#BRAINCANDIES LIVE SESSION is a three hour social event that makes people take action to improve their soft skills while raising awareness around a specific societal theme. During the session sharable content (videos, pictures, GIFs) is created. Learn more about #BRAINCANDIES LIVE here and about dowes in general here.
