Space Matters.

Do you know how your choices regarding meeting environments impact the quality of interactions between participants? Bad design of most corporate meeting spaces leads to dysfunctional behavior, so it’s quite possible that a lot of behaviors that frustrate you are also impacted by this factor. Think about a long table in the board room and a projector at its end. Did you know that it can turn people into picky spectators instead of constructive contributors? And this is just one of many examples.
We are project, change and business transformation practitioners who are ever curious about the ways various stakeholders behave in specific situations. We will take you on a journey throughout elements of space that shape human behavior. It will begin with lessons learned from urban planning and end with things that we know about tiny meeting spaces. You will learn about the views and research results of urban planners, architects, artists, psychologists, sociologists, and management professionals. It will open your eyes to the importance of space, so your meeting environments will never look the same again…
