Visual Consulting:
Designing & Leading Change

Learn with David Sibbet & Gisela Wendling, Ph.D.

Three-Day Online Workshop, Hosted on Zoom for European Timezones

April 21, 28-30, 2020

Following a sold-out workshop in 2018, David Sibbet
and Gisela Wendling, Ph.D., had planned to return to
Austria for an extended version of Visual Consulting
—Designing & Leading Change. Because of the
impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have shifted
this workshop and are now offering it virtually at
times that will work for European participants.

In this time of crisis, it is become rapidly more important to thoughtfully approach designing and leading change with tools and methods that work in person and online.

Online Learning

The online version of this workshop is an
opportunity for Gisela and David to share the tools
and approaches they have developed over the
last decade in virtual meeting environments. The
workshop will convene in Zoom with its breakout
groups and chat features. Participants will also use
Google Docs for wiki-like co-creation and Mural for
working with sticky notes online. David will be using a
tablet for additional visual-learning support.

No prior online learning or virtual collaboration
experience is required in order to take full advantage
of what this workshop offers. Our kick-off session
includes an introduction to the online tools we will be using.

Bring Your Change Challenge

Participants are invited to bring a process-consulting
challenge and will emerge with a process design and
knowledge of a range of proven intervention methods
that will lead to successful change. We encourage
those who are working on change challenges directly
related to the pandemic to bring these to the
workshop, including actual work on response plans
and adaptive strategies.

“This is one of the best Grove workshops I’ve been to,” a senior consultant attendee stated.
“I’ve not seen any approach to supporting change that so successfully balances attention to both the inner and the outer process of change.”
