Our approach

We work across the globe, with offices in Europe and North America. Our services are offered in-person, hybrid or entirely online. Our unique collection of approaches includes the following:

COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE

We use a series of tools to bring out the brilliance of a group. Key processes include World Café, Open Space and Fishbowl Dialogue. Each approach centers around the group’s needs while focusing on concrete, tangible outcomes.

PARTICIPATORY LEADERSHIP AND COLLECTIVE DECISION-MAKING

“How can we make collective decisions and invite everyone into their participatory leadership?”. This question is at the heart of Percolab’s 15 years of developing practices and processes. All these practices and more are incorporated into the international bestseller Going Horizontal, written by Percolab’s co-founder Samantha Slade.

VISUAL THINKING AND GRAPHIC HARVESTING

Visual Thinking is the expression of ideas or thoughts through illustrations, pictures or models. These practices and live graphic capture help interpret conversations and insights through physical representations. These approaches help reveal emerging patterns while making information more accessible.

DESIGN THINKING

Design Thinking encourages people to generate new ideas in fun and creative ways. This approach focuses on the end user’s needs while opening our minds to new possibilities. It uses an iterative process to test and improve ideas or concepts that support continuous learning.

WORKING WITH STORIES

To help make sense of complex situations, we work with raw stories of personal experiences. Percolab has developed Listen For… a game based on over a decade of applied research that encourages stories from diverse backgrounds and experiences to widen perspectives and build belonging.

APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY

Appreciative inquiry leans into our strengths and dreams. It encourages us to work with what’s already present and helps us take small steps toward an emboldened future.
