Enabling leaders and teams to see from a new perspective
In addition to our guided tours, Dialogue in the Dark™ Australia also conducts workshops for your school or company. Our workshops are facilitated by both blind trainers and sighted specialists.
Starting July 2017
Dialogue in the Dark offers unique corporate workshops geared towards working professionals. These sessions involve group challenges that must be completed in total darkness. Our corporate workshops focus on
- Leadership (change management, creativity, trust, self-reflection)
- Diversity (recognition of potential, respect, identity building)
- Communication (active listening, empathy, clarity)
- Team building (collaboration, team spirit, shared success)
Dialogue in the Dark Corporate Workshops have been conducted internationally for global clients such as the World Economic Forum, Allianz, Philips, Nokia, Airbus, UBS and many others.
Our workshops are based on the experiential learning methodology and its four stages: concrete experience, observation and reflection, experience interpretation and conceptualisation and application.
Participants of Dialogue in the Dark workshops spend up to 2 hours in the dark. Blind facilitators create a range of exercises in unpredictable situations similar to many business landscapes. This is our added value. Teams, leaders and executives do not learn anymore from theory but from experience. And the actual business experience is subject to abrupt changes and unpredictable scenarios.
Our facilitators are people who are blind or partially sighted. They are trained experts in non-visual perception and create a learning atmosphere of authenticity, empathy, openness and fun. It is also an opportunity to reflect on one’s purpose and productivity in a safe, professional and personal space. While contributing to leadership development, enhancing human interaction and mutual understanding, our workshops confirm Martin Buber’s observation that “The only way to learn is by encounter”.
Corporate workshops available from July 2017 and bookings are now open. For more information, please contact us or phone the Dialogue in the Dark team on 1300 411 881.
