The worldview of children is different from that of adults. Children are unbiased, ask questions that we as adults may not dare to ask, and come up with thoughts that don’t occur to us. ConsultingKids taps into this different way of thinking; inspired by the refreshing ideas of children, we provide solutions with impact to help organizations move forward. Topics of complex issues range from “customer retention” to “product development & innovation” and from “learning within a multinational” to “strategy implementation”. These are definitely not childish issues and the advice, translated into the adult world, is something to you can put into action.
Win-win for organizations and children
In addition, during an exciting day, we provide children with methods and techniques from reputable consulting firms and well-known management books that are translated into their world. This way, we teach children problem-solving skills that many of us only learn later in our working lives, but would have liked to know much earlier…
INNOVATIVE – PROFESSIONAL – PARTICIPATORY!
We work on a variety of different types of issues for our clients. Your top 5 challenges, regardless of complexity, are the starting point! Examples of recent themes we have worked on include:
Product development and innovation
Learning within a multinational
Future vision of the sector
Potential new startups
Implementation of strategy
(Oh…and the children absolutely love it & LEARN PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS too!)
90% of our time is spent working on your biggest challenges. Here, we go through the 5 steps explained in the approach to come up with refreshing solutions for adult issues. The duration is 6-12 weeks. We always involve several and different upper primary school classes from the local area. When desired, we sometimes combine this with other groups such as students, seniors, or young adults with Down Syndrome. Combinations with a train-the-trainer approach are negotiable and require commitment for multiple challenges.
The remaining 10% of the time, we are happy to provide inspiration sessions, TEDx-style talks, and workshops such as “thinking like a child”. During these sessions, we take participants along in the most wonderful concepts based on children’s ideas to inspire your own challenges.
DisruptiveKids runs on the same engine as ConsultingKids, the refreshing thinking power of children. This time with a focus on coming up with a competitive startup that can beat your organization!
