A Creativity Workshop on Reengaging as a Team
A 60-minute workshop and team-building activity using songwriting to explore the realities of re-engaging as a team. Participants are guided through the process of writing the lyrics to a song based on a metaphor for re-engaging as a team. At the workshop’s high point, Cliff adds a melody and music to the completed lyric on the spot which, without exception, makes the workshop and its subject matter unforgettable.
By breaking down the process of lyric-writing into easily understood and manageable pieces, Cliff shows his workshop participants how to employ storytelling and emotion-rich language in service of a profound exploration of the concept of re-engaging as a team.
After over two years of fragmented workplaces, people are headed back to the office. Instead of hoping for a smooth transition, teams now have a way to address the issue of re-engagement from a genuine, emotional, musical (and fun) perspective making the experience both enlightening and memorable.
