    Organizations are starting to realize they’ve not invested enough in understanding the problem space. They’ve been spending budget studying their solution, its design, and its use through quantitative and qualitative methods. The workshop begins with discussion about when solution-facing exploration is needed, and when it is not. 

    We talk about coming at this exploration from a place where you don’t care about solutions, but instead care only (for the time being) about what each person is trying to accomplish in the larger sense. The discussion then turns to the kinds of assumptions we make in business

    The workshop will cover the topic of developing cognitive empathy, as opposed to applying it, and dive deep into the skills required to conduct good listening sessions

    Workshop Outline:

    1. Warning signs
    2. Demographic assumptions
    3. Scoping a study
    4. Practical empathy
    5. Listening sessions
    6. Formal analysis

    The workshop is highly interactive, with recommendations from Indi for individual situations, backgrounds, and personalities. The day is peppered with group exercises as well as solo and paired exercises. Questions are welcome at any point!

    Skills you will develop:

    • Understanding of the difference between problem-facing and solution-facing research
    • The ability to begin recognizing assumptions and investigating them
    • A personal method to practice deep listening
    • An approach for enriching your creative ideas
    • Techniques to pave the way for better collaboration at work
