“We booked the Collaboratory as part of our annual attorney retreat. It was an incredibly positive event that engaged our entire group. The Collaboratory was a rare activity that was not only great fun while we “played the game,” but also offered deep learning and insights in the debriefing that, months later, we have continued to leverage. It offered new language that we continue to draw on as a group. I highly recommend it to any organization or community looking to advance collaboration skills and culture.”

Harry Nelson, Founder of Nelson Hardiman, LLP

“The trend towards more passive behaviors in organizations is one of the most troubling dynamics in our society.”

“Yosef facilitated a dynamic and eye-opening game session for my team! He challenged and supported us, championed and inspired us. We learned a lot about ourselves and each other in an engaging format — and also walked away with a wider, deeper, broader perspective about the way we play business and life. I highly recommend the Collaboratory for teams and individuals wanting greater accomplishment and fulfillment in all they do.” 

Lee K. Broekman, Communication & Collaborative Leadership Trainer at Organic Communication

"My first Collaboratory created a new viewpoint on the universe around me. Gaining an understanding of the power and potential we possess through our own “action cards” fundamentally changed my life. Through experiences like Radical Collaboration, Wim Hof and FreshBiz, I continue to grow my own self-empowerment and collaborative approach. Each Collaboratory brings me closer to unlocking my true potential and breaking through the blocks and defensiveness that can hold us all back. If you want to reach your maximum flow, and find your true potential, the Collaboratory Series is the way to get you there."

John Pearson, Executive Director at Chico Velo

Frequently Asked Questions

Whom is the Collaboratory for?

Anyone who wants to develop a collaborative mindset and next level collaboration skills.  The Collaboratory is for forward-thinking business professionals across the organization who can actually take the ideas and insights and implement them into the workplace. It’s great for HR Professionals, Business Owners, Project Teams, Store Managers, Entrepreneurs, Top-Management, Mid-Management, C Suite levels, etc.

How many people can participate in a Collaboratory?

For team meetings the group is usually between 4-8. Group training events are generally between 18-24 players, but can range from 4 up to 200 people. In our experience we find that under 40 participants is the best. It’s a great balance between diversity of thought while still being intimate enough for people to comfortably share ideas and insights.

What's the setup needed to run a Collaboratory?

It’s simple. A projector and screen for the presentation, tables to place one board game per every 4 players and enough chairs for everyone.

How can I customize a Collaboratory?

A Collaboratory works well in conjunction with a strategic planning session, talent onboarding, team building activity, value alignment, culture initiative, and corporate innovation projects. Please select our ½-day or full-day options to allow for ample time to integrate new insights gained.

“The Collaboratory facilitators coached us through the game and masterfully helped us beat our lizard brain. We learned of new ways to create together and win together. It made me realize that if I do not shift my mindset I will never win big and have harmony with my win.”
