Bored to the Board for the third sector is a creative, outcome-focussed workshop designed for charities and the third sector. It’s adaptable to organisations of all sizes and sectors and offers a creative problem-solving focus.
Purpose of workshop:
The workshop is based around devising a board game to gain a better understanding of a project or goal. It’s ideal for organisations:
- Facing a changing funding landscape
- Needing to create a team vision for moving forward
- Wanting to expand or re-focus their offering
- Seeking innovation in fundraising
- Wanting to provide best practice to their end-users
How the workshop works:
Focussing on questions such as ‘how do we define success?’, ‘what are the milestones along the way to achieving success’, and ‘what boosts or perils could we face’, participants build up a creative bank of ideas which contribute to their understanding of the issue at hand.
During the workshop we employ a range of exercises to engage participants in defining and understanding their goals. This enables a deep rooted analysis of targets and ambitions, and facilitates breaking them down to gain a valuable understanding of how to go about achieving them.
Each exercise builds up creative elements which contribute to the creation of a board game, which participants then work in teams to devise.
The workshop ends with each team presenting their games to the room.
“This was just what we needed for our rather stressed out team” – Rachel
After the workshop participants are empowered and task-focussed about achieving their goals. They are equipped with a deeper understanding of what they need to achieve and how they can go about achieving it, along with a clear sense of a pathway to reach their target.
The workshop is effective in removing the ‘How do we…?’ and replacing it with ‘Let’s do it!’
The creative and interactive aspects mean participants are energised and optimistic about their goals, with a sense that they are possible, achievable, and within their reach.
The group work encourages teamwork and peer to peer support, while allowing each person an opportunity to consider their own personal contribution, leaving them empowered to move forward.
The workshop can be run as:
- Half day (4 hours)
- Full day (8 hours)
The various durations allow for client-based flexibility depending on the nature of the core issue being addressed, and other logistical issues such as available time etc. We’re happy to discuss what you need.
The workshop can be run for groups from 6 – 80 people. Any group over 25 would require additional support which can be provided by the client or Creative Engagement.
Creative Engagement supplies all resources and materials for the workshop.
