Creative Workshop Exercises - Easy and Engaging Exercises for Change

All the workshop exercises are explained in simple step-by-step fully illustrated guides drawing on our carefully selected and curated science-backed training products.

The exercises are suitable for use by coaches, consultants, therapists, facilitators, coaches, workshop leaders, trainers, organisational development and human resources and by team leaders.

While suitable care should always be exercised when undertaking workshop exercises, and the needs, psychological maturity and particular context of the specific audience taken into account, these exercises are carefully designed to achieve a positive outcome.

Each guide clearly explains the tools needed for the exercise, the intended impact, and any necessary preparation before the exercise begins. The guide then takes you through running the exercise in a step-by-step explanation, illustrating at key points how the exercise might look so you’ll always be clear on what you are doing.
