Workshop Director: Kristin Guttenberg
When: Tuesday, December 5, 2017, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Where: lettrétage, Mehringdamm 61, 10961 Berlin

From insight to outlook, from impression to expression: the processes and materials of the last module will be examined from a bird’s eye view, the expanded field will be explored and from there we will zoom in our focus in order to be able to reflect upon the first and next steps as well as to develop prototypes for new approaches and projects. In the application of future practices, peer coaching and self-coaching, current transitions can be researched and perspectives can be developed. Existing competencies and opportunities will be pointed out and conflicts, blind spots and doubts will be viewed as resources for further development.
*This event is only open to those who have registered for the entire seminar and all modules; additional participants cannot be added to this event.
