Design Week Portland has been postponed to August 1 – 8. Stay tuned for more details.

Learn about how to build more effective teams and organizations in support of your brand’s true meaning and purpose.

We’ll teach you how we help organizations and teams define how they make decisions and behave in support of their goals. Defining and activating the two most powerful culture tenets — values and ways of working — will help any organization be more aligned and focused. With the support of tangible examples from other companies, workshop participants will work as individuals and in groups to codify a fictional company’s culture tenets in support of its purpose.

In this “Swarm” (which is what we call this activity), you will:

  • Gain an understanding of what leading organizations are doing to align their employees in support of their business objectives
  • Learn how to develop and activate values and ways of working
  • Leave with a Liquid Swarm Activity Workbook that will include culture and employee experience definitions and supporting examples, all of which can be used to help you align your employees in support of your goals
