This workshop promises high interactive engagement and an experience you won’t soon forget!  Shift/P.O.V. is a new interactive tool for turning resistance and stalled decision making into productive, creative collaboration. Each table group will tackle a case, argue two opposing sides in 2 timed rounds, and experience the suspense and surprise in between rounds with the Random Factors. The idea for Shift/P.O.V. was actually inspired by a 2013 Maine ASTD workshop Kym and Laurie did called “Rocking the Resistance”. Come and experience this updated version!

Participants will walk away with a sense of the benefits of framing a high stakes issue within a specifically structured game context, discovering their own relationship to change, opposition and collaboration, along with tools and insights to apply next time they encounter difficult group process.


At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. To expose participants to the benefits of tackling difficult issues within an engaging game structure, and to get them to identify their habitual response to change in general 
  2. To offer opportunity for participants to experience and engage a topic from both opposing sides
  3. To offer– through the Random Factors - the benefit of short “creativity breathers” away from the intensity of discussion
