"There was a noticeable shift in appreciation for the many perspectives and challenges of participants."

We’re back from the Inspire.Legal conference in New York, where we designed and facilitated a collaborative problem-framing exercise for 200 legal innovators and industry leaders. Here’s what Integreon’s Chief Innovation Officer Alma Asay had to say about the day:

Matt Homann, an expert facilitator with a passion for driving creative thinking to solve big problems in legal and other industries, led the Forum Workshops.  Participants completed problem exercises that included brainstorming a “challenge worth solving” and drilling down to the “key stakeholders (and the impact they feel is).”  By focusing on the “who” and “why” – instead of “how” – there was a noticeable shift in appreciation for the many perspectives and challenges of participants in our industry versus the all-too-common “well, they’ll have to change” mentality that can accompany solutions-focused discussions.
