About The Workshop

Unlock the Power of Circular Thinking.

The time has come for a paradigm shift—a transition from linear to circular thinking. Much like switching from left-handed to right-handed, this shift requires a deliberate and transformative process.

This workshop is designed to guide you through this cognitive transformation. We understand that embracing circular thinking isn't a simple task; it's about fundamentally altering how we approach problems and solutions. Once that mental "click" happens, you'll find yourself adept at applying circular thinking across various domains.

This isn't merely about creating cycles within a linear framework; it's about eliminating the linear constraints altogether. This calls for a holistic redesign of all products, adhering to the philosophy of "Rethinking the way we make things."

Join our workshop, and let's embark on this transformative journey together.
