METHOD

Minke invented a visual game to help colleagues to get to know each other.

With inspirating examples, the team members had to share their own values and to decide which one were the best for their young company thanks to an exchange game. Finally they had to found examples of behaviors in work situations related to these new values 

RESULTS

A team who knows all the skills and personal objectives of his members.
A first whole team collaboration and a success.

A set of shared values and work behaviors expected.

Bonus: thanks to the little icebreaker game, the RH received all the ideas people had for their career development.

A few things we’re great at

FACILITATION

Thanks to facilitation, we enable the organization’s teams, groups, workshops and meetings to be much more productive. The collaborative spaces we create allow the participants to identify and solve problems, plan together, make collaborative decisions, resolve conflicts… Moreover, it builds a sense of empowerment, a deepening of personal commitment and loyalty to the organization.

VISUALIZATION AND PERCEPTION

Our world is so complex, even our so well elaborate brain have to create models to be able to deal with reality… These models are experience, knowledge, stereotypes… sometimes, we have to learn to change our point of view to  to see another more accurate picture and moreover innovate! 
That’s why we use perception games and a lot of visualizations: visual diagnosis, visual canvas, visual facilitation, sketchnote, graphic recording

PROTOTYPING

We have a very concrete approach of our interventions. Each of them must deliver a tangible (Make): from the first meeting to the final workshops. Therefore, our teams are composed with skilled facilitators and talented millennials makers: it helps a lot to produce « quick and dirty » visualizations, websites, leaflet, mockups, app…

TRAINING

We are passoniate about what we do. The whole team like to invest hours in reading, selftraining…
And we love to share our knowledge and experience with other passionate people like you.
We have already trained hundreds of motivated people and our evaluations are

Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

J’ai suivi la formation de Facilitation visuelle de Benoît. Trois jours seulement de formation, mais j’ai eu l’impression d’apprendre plus que durant mon master en communication. Il va à l’essentiel. Sa manière de donner cours est vraiment stimulante. Il maitrise parfaitement non seulement la facilitation graphique mais aussi un tas de techniques de gestion de réunion innovantes. Il m’a montré, par la pratique d’un vrai brainstorming, comment une entreprise ou une organisation peut gagner en innovation et en créativité en un minimum de temps… et avec une parfaite dynamique d’équipe. Pour moi, toute réunion (ou formation) aura un avant et un après Minke.
