Assistant to Executive Director, Earth Institute
TYTHEdesign designed and facilitated a full-day staff workshop for our organization, The Earth Institute, using the methodology of design thinking, creativity and innovation. The goal of the workshop was to build collective problem-solving skills and foster team-building by encouraging empathy and building interdepartmental perspectives across the Earth Institute. We were very pleased with the services provided by TYTHEdesign; they were attentive and timely, and offered an innovative and creative perspective to address our needs. TYTHEdesign worked collaboratively with us to develop a dynamic, cohesive agenda for the day, using their expertise with design-thinking while taking into account our ideas and concerns.
The workshop was very thought-provoking and insightful. Marcos was articulate, patient, and thorough in his presentation and in answering peoples’ questions.
Marcos is a master facilitator. The room was packed with eager participants, and the atmosphere was positive. Marcos created a space where people could let their guard down and show themselves fully. I have not seen many spaces with this type of camaraderie created so quickly.
