WHAT IS A CO-STORM?The CO-STORM™ is a think tank designed to be your personal board of directors for life and work.
The concept behind the CO-STORM is about how much we’re able to see for each other that we don’t see for ourselves.
Fresh eyes see our blind spots and filters. They also mirror back to us what’s really going on. There’s a creative back and forth energy in getting outside your own head. A CO-STORMER’S insight can clarify what steps to take next, highlight your strengths, and make you pay attention to what should happen naturally.
WHAT THE SESSION LOOKS LIKEWe start the session with an introduction to CO-STORMING, instructions, and an overview of our time together. Then we pair you off in groups of three or four. Your group will go off for a 90 minute CO-STORM session. During this session, each participant will have time for an introduction and a chance to discuss their most pressing pain point, project or idea. Your CO-STORM partners will brainstorm with you on solutions. At the end, we will gather together and recap.
WHAT ARE THE RESULTS?Bring your challenges, ideas, prototypes…or just an empty notebook and get ready to take the next step.
You will get new perspectives and confidence to move forward with your project, which might mean ditching plans and going in a totally different direction. No matter the outcome, I guarantee you will already be taking steps in the right direction.
I truly believe we’ve got great energy going in our community you’re not going to find anywhere else…hitch a ride on that energy!
