Steve Holyer – facilitating growth
Steve establishes a trusting container: enabling the free and safe exchange of important differences to promote discovery and creation.
He has an intuition for team dynamics, and is well-versed in facilitating strategy and impact mapping workshops, as well as planning and retrospective gatherings. As a trainer he engages participants fully in learning by stepping back and “training from the back of the room.”
Steve is a licensed workshop facilitator for StrategicPlay® with LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®.
Steve’s main focus is finding better ways to develop software. He has also worked on improving team dynamics with groups as diverse as journalists in the press center of the Eurovision Song Contest and nonprofit aid organizations. Steve coaches teams to enable them to identify their own potential and find strategies for approaching problems and challenges. He builds workshops around playful activities, for example: using StrategicPlay® with LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® to engage participants fully in creating and testing strategies, through model building and storytelling.
