Technique 1: Know Your Participants

Running a workshop is a game of extracting ideas and perspectives from different people, positions and personalities. 

Some personalities like to talk, others like to shy away, some people hold senior authoritative roles while others are on the first rung of the ladder.  

Regardless of personality or position, perspectives are important so you need to know who you’re dealing with and how to massage all perspectives from the group.

Technique 2: Align Expectations

brand strategy workshop means different things to different people. It’s important that you set your stall out from the beginning to make sure everyone is on the same page about what they want to achieve.
