How might an empathetic approach generate new insights and connections in your research? Join us for an experiential walk in another's shoes!

Empathy is the fuel of a decent society. To use your creative thinking powers to build new solutions and drive change, it's important to prioritize understanding human needs. How often do you feel that someone really listens to you, hears you and understands your perspective? In this workshop you will be introduced to the Rejig process for empathetic research and have the opportunity to try this out. Highly experiential listening, learn and share exercises will help you apply empathetic practices as you unleash your curiosity, build new connections with others and feel the magical powers of collaboration.

About the programme

This is the first workshop of a six-part series. Participants are welcome to attend as many sessions as they would like; attendance at all is not required.

Rejig is a design thinking consultancy based in Belfast. Working within the education, charity and private sectors we help clients tackle complex challenges by building creative confidence and leveraging innovative thinking styles.

We are delighted to offer this series of six experiential workshops, which will take you through the tried and tested Rejig practices and processes. All of our workshops are energetic, totally hands on and participants learn by doing. We use creative thinking tools and processes to help build a culture of collaboration with a real focus on mindset and the opportunity to experience how these tools and processes look, feel and sound in action. We create opportunities for participants to collaborate, listen with respect, learn from each other and re-inject fun while doing this. We help people build a common language to collaborate.

Though interconnected, these workshops also stand alone. Join for one, or all, workshops. With limited places, early registration is advised. We look forward to meeting/working with you!
