Creativity & Collaboration


Collaboration is integral in any workplace, and healthy teams are the bedrock of project success and organizational effectiveness. Let COCAbiz take your teamwork to the next level by teaching innovative strategies that build resilience, team trust, and the safety to risk new ideas.

COCAbiz offers Creativity & Collaboration workshops to provide a shared experience that pushes participants out of their comfort zone, offering experience with tested processes for approaching opportunities that everyone can apply to real situations.

Collaborative Design

Achieving a Common Goal with Design Thinking
Also known as human-centered design, design thinking is a process-based approach to problem solving often used in creative fields. Led by an experienced designer, participants learn the basics of design thinking and then work as a team to collaboratively vision and implement a creative solution tailored for a specific user.

Rube Goldberg

Creative Problem Solving from Point A to Point Yellow
Real-world problems don’t come with an instruction manual. This workshop, led by a visual artist, introduces a “creative play” approach to collaboration. Participants implement those strategies as they team up to tackle a creative challenge: build the most complicated machine possible (a Rube Goldberg machine) to perform a simple task.

KWS has now worked with COCA for a year, and the workshops are always a masterfully constructed balancing act between making the participants comfortable to express themselves and challenging them. COCAbiz has a great repertoire of artists that really understand how to build a culture of trust in our team.
