18 new Radical Collaboration® trainers in the euforia community and new trainings coming up soon!

We are happy to have a bunch of freshly certified Radical Collaboration®  trainers in our community and to offer the first trainings in and around Switzerland. Together with our Chief Euphoric Officer Chantal, who became a trainer one year ago, we are now 19 trainers – the only ones in Switzerland!

Jim Tamm, the creator of the Radical Collaboration® methodology, and the psychologist and Radical Collaboration® trainer Malou Laureys facilitated the seven-day Trainer Certification course for 18 euforians in Geneva. The course was a deep-dive into the topic with a lot of space for reflections and discussions. The two trainers gave a great example on how radically collaborating creates an atmosphere where people complement each other and can flexibly come up with new solutions. Jim and Malou were happy to have the chance to train Radical Collaboration® trainers in a new country and to open up opportunities for a new group of young participants.

The aim of euforians to become certified trainers is to create more training opportunities for people within and from outside of the community. From now on Radical Collaboration® trainings will be offered regularly. Check out the next trainings:

 
 

March 24th to 26th
(only 2 spots left!)

March 31st to April 2nd
(12 spots available)

 

More trainings will come up in May and in Summer. You will find more information soon in our calendar. If you would like to book a training for your organization, get in touch with us!

 

What contains the three-day Radical Collaboration® training?
The three-day, highly interactive Radical Collaboration training is designed to teach people five very practical and immediately useful skills essential to building collaborative relationships between individuals and within teams and organizations. It is appropriate for anyone whose circumstances have the potential for disharmony, misunderstandings and conflict, and who would like to improve their effectiveness. It is also particularly helpful for individuals responsible for creating more collaborative environments within a team or organization. It provides participants with step by step tools how to initiate, lead and reach closure in negotiations and how to build successful long-term relationships.

Changemaker Toolbox: Flashmob

You recently discovered the health benefits of singing and dancing and you are wondering why people are still walking in the street rather than taking a moon walk to work. Talking about it has inspired one or two of your friends to shake their limbs more often and now you decide it is time to inspire a larger audience. You call your friends and you conspire on an easy and simple to share choreography that you can teach to 10 more friends. You agree on a time and at which you can show up in a public space blast your favourite song, kick off your dancing, singing, limb shaking choreography together and inspire as many people around you to sing and dance along. Your video savvy friends capture the action that later in the day goes viral online. You have successfully reached your objective of bringing the health benefits of singing and dancing to a larger crowd, had fun in the process, practiced radical collaboration skills with your friends and a bunch of strangers who are now friends in dancing singing spirit. In order to replicate in the future, here the small flashmob recepy:

1. Pick something you want to make visible (benefit of hugging, recycling garbage, planting flowers in the city)
