The Curve of Action model provides a framework to help identify patterns in the pushes and pulls in life that we all experience.

The Curve of Action ModelThis model suggests how to use this information to develop a design strategy and refine your actions in pursuit of a goal.

We invite you to be with us for a wonderful experience of knowledge exchange, group work, and conversation. The facilitated session will last for 90 minutes with an additional 30 minutes in which we will still be around for an informal conversation.

Once you register for the session, you will receive a link to the detailed description.

We will dive deeper into the model and what you can personally draw from it. It might be particularly relevant when we as designers & facilitators face conflict in a group, or even in ourselves.

Together, let’s explore the wonderful details and what this model enables us to achieve.

We are very much looking forward to our conversations.

Session Notes and Recording Available Here
NOTE: This online workshop is free to all participants. Members of our TVW Learning Community on Mighty Networks will have access to the recording and resources, including all future and past MOTM series and TVW workshops.
