Description
Through a detailed analysis of the Mayan calendar birth date of team members, each individual is encouraged to reflect upon different aspects of their personality. Then through cooperative games and reflections on the relationships they evidence, teams explore the significance of Maya astronomy and theories of interpersonal relations for their work environment. Finally they use these insights to develop solutions that improve relationships, increase productivity, and promote innovation.
Ideally this process is amplified through a traditional fire ceremony, which has the effect of focusing vision and collective will. The practice also reinforces and contextualizes the insights gained during the workshop.
