Introduction to the Workshop
The Thinking Styles Map
This map shows you how peoples’ thinking is linked to time. That helps you remember each type of thinking and informs you when each one is most useful on a project or initiative. Everyone can use each Thinking Style, yet each person is born with a natural preference. Knowing your preference helps you choose the best way to communicate across Thinking Styles and access their unique value, as well.
The Thinking Styles Wheel of Innovation
Deeper learning of the Thinking Styles shows how best to bring ideas into the mainstream – and how to avoid the most common mistake entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs make. The wheel of innovation (aka wheel of collaboration) shows you the order of Thinking Styles needed first, second and third in order to bring out your idea into the world to make the impact you intend.
The Workshop Includes...
Led by Eleni Pallas and Shadi Abouzeid advisors of leaders and change-makers who want to humanize their organizations for the sake of more enriching team cultures and more sustainable results. They've both worked globally and can steer you toward what works best in all things leadership, team culture and bringing innovative ideas across the chasm.
Show-and-tell and experiential learning
We designed the workshop to show you the Thinking Styles map and then put you in situations where you can use them to see or solve challenges you face in your current situation. Group-wide Q&A gets interesting as people bring their insights and objections that creates lively peer-to-peer learning and lasting realizations from "aha" moments.
Interaction & Fun
The workshop is fun because it's live – and alive. We use polling, provocative questions and on-the-spot illustrations to make things dynamic. We show you how to predict your own needs and those of others, as well as the natural tension inherent in each Thinking Style – and of course, what to do about it. The fun really comes from the learning!

Meet Your Learning Guides
A life-altering car accident in Siberia ended up propelling me into my current mission toward humanizing workplaces. After 20 years working on corporate strategy and business development teams, I now equip change-makers with ways to solve the team challenges that have persisted for decades.
I hope you join us throughout your leadership journey.
Quite interesting to see a few blind spots at work
Very interesting model that offers me more applications in my work than I realized. Many thanks!
It's interesting -in different stages of startup growth -you need different mixes of people. It's why VCs will typically come in and replace the founding team.
I'm glad to learn something new about myself or have a label that I can understand.
A huge part of communication is knowing your audience, so if you know their thinking style you can curate communication more effectively.
Fit people to the right tasks.
It is a very valuable training everyone should take.
Provided so much insight on why there sometimes conflict at work and home.
Thank you for the workshop. I learned a lot about other styles and how that effects the work I do.
Recognizing what each style brings to the table helps value diversity of thought, which will likely lead to the best outcomes.
Think through the types of meetings that we have and how to put the right people in the room for the right meeting.
