How to Manage Your Energy & Create Space for the Things You Love
In this hands on workshop we will be taking a design thinking approach to exploring the topic of managing your energy. Group facilitators and team leaders have many roles and one of the most important roles they play is managing the energy of the group. For this workshop, we will be digging in to a little self care and focusing on your energy as an individual. However, energy is CONTAGIOUS! Managing the group energy starts with YOU and thus we are confident what you learn in this workshop will impact your facilitation and leadership too. We are all given the same 24 hours each day and yet, have you ever noticed that some days you are just done even though there are still hours left to the day? We often focus on time management and making the best use of our hours, but what about your energy? Trish Gillam will lead a variety of hands on activities to help you explore how to better manage your energy and design a life that allows you the freedom to do more of what you love. BIO: Trish is a connector of people and ideas. She loves all things related to community and innovation and is very active in her local community. After a few years as the Executive Director for Arizona’s first coworking/collaborative space and starting her own business in facilitation, she flipped things upside down and decided to enter the field of real estate where she gets to help people connect in the community via the most sacred part of our communities, our homes. The most common question people ask Trish is “How do you have the energy for everything you do?” After several years of digging deep in the topic of managing your energy, she has been presenting on this topic with groups and looks forward to exploring the topic further with the Phoenix Design Thinking and Innovation Collective.

    What we're about

    Phoenix Design Thinking & Innovation Collective aims to bring people together from a wide variety of industries, backgrounds and roles to collaborate and discuss practices, methodologies, tactics and experiences to help us collectively bring innovative ideas to the world. We are proud to be the first satellite chapter of the Seattle Design Thinking & Innovation Collective because we share their vision to build a community of innovators, design thinkers, and creative catalysts who are passionate about design thinking and bringing creative confidence to their teams and industries. We believe that by sharing ideas, methods, and stories with each other, we are all better equipped to lead a creative revolution for ourselves, our colleagues and our industries.

    Who should attend? Anyone who is currently trying to build an innovation culture in their organization, anyone who is curious about design thinking and creativity, and design thinkers who are already practicing and want to connect to the greater Phoenix innovation community.

    What will you get out of it? A network of fellow creatives and catalysts, new ideas for your own practice, and case studies and tips for how to bring innovation tools and mindsets back to your organization and teams.

    Your Hosts: Tamara Christensen of Idea Farm is delighted to be hosting this Meetup series and is always on the lookout for like-minded collaborators who want to co-host. Interested in sponsoring, hosting or facilitating a future Meetup? Email me at to discuss!
