Leadership and Team Building

Dialogue in the Dark Workshops are a special part of our transformative learning experiences.  Program facilitators are blind or vision impaired. They are experts in non-visual perception. They are, for you, creating an atmosphere of authenticity, empathy and openness. 

As a participant, you will spend 2 to 3 hours in darkness, facing unpredictable situations similar to many business landscapes. With a wide range of exercises, as a business leader, you no longer learn from theory but from practice. Specially trained blind trainers create abrupt changes and unpredictable scenarios that you and your team will face and successfully overcome together in the darkness! 

Since it is not possible to use one’s visual sense, one has to activate entirely new resources, instincts and unused potential to reach a set goal. Darkness accelerates, amplifies and anchors learning processes. Participants will have to dare, to share and to care, and will work out strategies to solve common tasks together. Communication and cooperation are essential tools for success, as well as effective communication, leadership and trust. 

The benefits of the workshop in the dark are re-enforced by an extended time for debriefing, reflection and consolidation of learning. Returning to a lit environment, you, as a participant, share your experiences, observations, surprises, (good) frustrations and learnings.
