BEGIN WITH EMPATHY
Odyssey Works has been perfecting the craft of transformation for over fifteen years. Our workshops begin with empathy because it is the best tool for creating truly collaborative teams, effective design, and a positive impact on the world. We understand that making a meaningful life, business, or creative practice involves challenges and breakthroughs, not simply divine inspiration. We hold workshops for founders, corporate teams, designers, artists, educational institutions, and the public.
EMPATHY & EXPERIENCE DESIGN
Audience: Teams, Designers, Product Managers
Our signature workshop emphasizes the concepts of empathy and the gift as springboards for the design process, and teaches the art of asking powerful questions that open dialogue. Using Odyssey Works’ singular interview process, these workshops explore how to develop a space of curiosity and intimacy to foster real collaboration and to develop a culture of common purpose. Each attendee designs and receives a bespoke designed experience.

Audience: Designers, Project Managers
This workshop teaches participants how to use diagrams both as a process tool and as a communication strategy. Beginning with the intended affect, we work backwards to create a map of the arc of an experience, whether that's the user experience of your latest product, an organizational structure, or a bespoke event for a loved one.

We will work with you to develop workshops geared toward your specific goals. Our workshops can help focus a team on concept development at early stages or on developing general collaborative practices. We can work with teams as small as 5 and as large as 150. Workshops can be as short as 2 hours and as long as a weekend. Contact us below to discuss in greater detail.
MAKING MEANING: COFOUNDERS WORKSHOP
Audience: Co-Founders, Sr. Team Members, Collaborative Pairs
How do we work with one another to have a meaningful impact on the world? When embarking on creating a business or collaborating in a lasting way, it is critical to engage in the question of what drives you and your mission. This workshop builds strong communication by engaging pairs in one-on-one investigation into the essence of what is most significant to each and to their work together.
