Dear reader, for this issue, I collected a very interesting online course and some podcasts that explore new and different ways of working, meeting and collaborating. As well, I picked up a chair-sculpture energizer.
Curious? Then keep on reading.

Events & Workshops

Reset Online Course 

RESET is an online course created by Jocelyn K. Glei that advocates a new way of working—a heart-centered approach to productivity that’s nurturing, intentional, and inspiring. The 4-week online course helps to recalibrate the way we work to help us push back against the toxic habits of technology and learn how to work in a way that is sustainable and powerful. The course comprises a series of video talks, reset rituals, meditations, and live Q&As. Registration for RESET opens to new students on March 4th, 2019.

If you want to get a feeling for Jocelyn K. Glei’s approach, you should definitely check out her Hurry Slowly Podcast. It’s is a great source of inspiration to improve your productivity in a more healthy and human way.


Spaces & Experiences

Chair-Sculpture Energizer

You might remember my mention of friends and colleagues from Komfortzonen. Not only are they an amazing team of workshop facilitators—who definitely get you out of your comfort-zone—but they regularly share methods and tools on their blog, too. Besides other really good stuff, I’d like to point out the post on how to use chairs (yes, chairs!) as a workshop energizer. If you want to learn how to incorporate this notorious piece of office furniture into your next workshops or meeting in a pretty unusual, but highly energetic way, check out this blog post (in German). 


Like many other furniture manufactures, USM is also wondering whether office spaces will still exist in the future, and if so, what these will be like. With their Doing our HomeWork podcast, USM explores such questions. Topics covered include imagination and purpose, collaboration and people, empathy and routine as well as intuition and place. The series explores asking questions like: “How will the future of work will be materialized in the spaces that we inhabit?” or “How will collaboration look like when we are not sitting in offices anymore?”


Not to be missed: Make Space is a classic when it comes to creating more creative working environments. The book is based on experiences from designing, developing and continuously iterating the University of Stanford space. It’s a very hands-on resource for anyone looking to manipulate spaces to enhance the ways in which teams and individuals communicate, work, play and innovate. Whether you're planning to create new spaces or revamp an existing one, you'll not only find abstract ideas or strategies, but easy to follow step-by-step instructions, too. If you already have the book, but have forgotten about it, you might want to pick it up again, brush off the dust and take a look at it with fresh eyes. If you don’t have it, but want to dip into the material, you can check out and download some resources here.
