CAFE STYLE WORKFORCE INNOVATION PROGRAMS

CAFE STYLE 'EPIC' WORKFORCE INNOVATION MODEL

Experiential

90% of what’s being learned is being remembered when doing. Experiential methods mean we immerse ourselves in the experience and feel our way through it, raising our self-awareness, emotional and social intelligence and is in fact the only way to develop creative thinking and innovation.

Playful

Adult learning and change is most effective in a positive emotional state: when it’s fun. It makes intimidating, perplexing material engaging and easier to comprehend. Many areas of neuroscience provide proof that without play we cannot have the creativity and innovation we need.

Iterative

A cyclical process leads to twice the impact of traditional linear learning and change and builds new habits and paradigms. Habits and paradigms dictate our behavior and decision making as we go about our daily lives and helps us open up our minds to possibility and insights.

Collaborative

Significant improvement in outcome is got by adding social and collaborative elements to learning and change. Most learning and change is informal, some say more than 70% and we are social beings, so whether we collaborate on, or off-line, the results are always more powerful.

OTHER GREAT WORKFORCE INNOVATION STUFF FROM CAFE STYLE!

Cafe Style Pop-Up Innovation Cafes

Pop-Up Innovation Cafes provide an informal innovative environment where people are free to explore, experiment, create and innovate. This is a place where, even in the limited time of 60-90 minutes in each Espresso Innovation Pod Session, (of which there are typically three-four sessions in one day), you can develop 150 -180 people a day. In these Cafe Style sessions, you can experience more profound outcomes than from a full day intervention.

What's in the Cafe Style Activity Box?

Cafe Style boasts a portfolio of hundreds of innovation microlearning activities across 13 cafe themes, addressing key learning and culture change challenges for today’s teams and organizations! Each activity is designed to allow Change Champions, L&D/OD Practitioners and Leaders to develop creative thinking and innovative behavior in individuals and groups! All themes can be tailored to your unique business and innovation needs!

Tailoring Cafe Style to your Needs

When it comes to creating an innovative workforce, one size does not fit all. Many organizations have many business and innovation needs that are not met by open or off-the-shelf programs. Cafe Style Design Services include customization and curriculum conversion into innovation microlearning activities and programs. Tailoring Cafe Style is efficient and effective when you harness the power of our creative and innovative design team!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US...

“I have been involved with Cafe Style since April 2016 and wow what a journey it’s been.  I’ve been training, coaching and facilitating for a long time. I love the way Cafe Style is shaking things up for the disruptive market place that we are now experiencing. It’s bringing together and confirming things I already know, but also I have learnt many new things. It’s that good that I get up at 4am to do the ‘virtual master class’ calls with people in different time zones from all around the world.”

Julie Watson, Brisbane 

Oh what ‘thunks’ you have and what fun you feel when you engage in Cafe Style Speed Training! I am loving my Master Facilitator program. I cannot recommend the methodology or company enough.
