DIALOGUE IN THE DARK Business Workshops offer professional trainings and workshops in absolute darkness.

The workshop activities provide an innovative and powerful tool for human resource development, leadership training, team building, reinforcing a collaborative mindset, empathy and emotional intelligence.

The strong impression of the experience in the dark allows participants to retain the lessons learned in this program over a longer period of time.

What added values do Trainings in the Dark bring to YOUR organization?

Quickly recognizing familiar patterns
There is no other environment than darkness where workshop participants recognize in such a short time their beneficial or obstructive behavior and communication patterns. These quickly gained insights are the basis for future skills development.

New knowledge gained in extremely short time
The acceleration of the learning process in complete darkness is enormous. The new experiences received in the unusual environment have a deep impact and remain in the long term memory.

Improved communication skills
The communication without seeing is clearer and more precise. Listening and understanding others becomes key for achieving a set target. Darkness strengthens participant’s concentration and communication skills; team players surprisingly quickly produce efficient solutions for challenging and difficult tasks.

Building trust and team work
Participants, hesitant and unsure in the beginning, gradually discover that their closeness to each other inflicted by darkness is in fact helpful and comfortable. Team work and the “we” feeling turn into a positive emotional and physical experience and build a strong associative link in memory.

Impulse for creative thinking and acting
The various activities in the dark are a lot of fun. One recalls memories from childhood. These memories help us think creatively and explore new ways in doing things. The participants discover and activate their own hidden resources.

Positive effect of diversity

Without visual impressions people meet unprejudiced. Your looks and your body language are no longer important.

Blind trainers
The blind trainers impress their audience with the way they perceive the reality. They surprise us with detailed and sharp observations and their feedback becomes extremely valuable. Valuable feedback is essential for the learning process of participants. The personal life experiences enrich the exchanges between the trainers and the participants and encourage an open and constructive approach to personal characteristics and values.

Training effect is achieved due to the fact that the participants, being in an unfamiliar environment, are really starting to listen to each other and work together. These qualities are essential to the successful management of business processes.

Managerial staff without a personal identity often fail to get across fundamental concepts for decisions. A few hours in darkness helps sharpen the identity of any manager.
