About the workshop: “How to Manufacture Heat in the Classroom”


As facilitators, we often need to bring people to their learning edge. To do this through the lecture/storytelling mode just isn’t enough…. instead we need to focus on experiential learning where we produce ambiguity, uncertainty, and confusion for leaders— not comfort. Creating this heat provides the crucible for learning. This can be very uncomfortable for facilitators who will almost certainly be blamed for the confusion. But for development to occur, “trainers” must learn to stop teaching and step aside.


The purpose of this session is to provide you with an under-the-covers view of how you can intervene skillfully to raise the heat in the classroom. The method of teaching this session is different from what you might traditionally find in a classroom. The intent is to create the conditions in the room that you might find in your workplace so that you can learn how to intervene skillfully by doing so yourselves while in this session. The process involves taking risks, learning on the edges of your current knowledge and expanding it, and learning by actively doing leadership -  not listening to someone talking about leadership. This approach, called Case-in-Point was pioneered at Harvard and aims to help participants bolster their leadership capacities by having them experience challenges in the "here and now," rather than simply discussing leadership concepts.
