Vivo Group workshops are highly interactive, and involve small-group discussions of case studies using examples that are specific and relevant to the life science and technology industries. In addition, there are facilitated group discussions, writing assignments, practical exercises, short role-playing exercises, and opportunities to gain perspective from and share best practices with course instructors and other participants. Attendees are given theoretical background and overview of topics, as well as practical tools that can be implemented in the work place. Participants gain experience by practicing using new skills where appropriate.
