Globally Activating People
at Speed and Scale

Cognician has won numerous accolades across the globe for our activation programs focusing on change management, software adoption, onboarding, leadership, connectedness, collaboration, innovation, and more.

Now, we're proud to introduce our Activation Workshops which showcase our methodology and tools and will fundamentally shift how you think about activating transformational change.

By attending one, you'll receive our Activation Tactics card deck, which highlights our eight activation catalysts and 48 activation tactics. You'll also hear about our forthcoming book, Activation. Reach out today to learn more.


Who are Activation Workshops for?

If you're a change management practitioner, a CLO, a Director of Learning, or a learning experience designer, you'll find our Activation Workshops extremely valuable.

We've also created customized Activation Workshops for clients who want to apply our activation framework to specific challenges such as digital adoption, new business process adoption, connectedness of remote teams, and other change and learning challenges.


What are attendees saying?

"I thought it was a great overview and material that could be very useful to clients going through change, which is most of them!" – John

"Everyone has remarked since how much they enjoyed the session and how helpful it was in terms of thinking through solutions for clients."– Moira

"Phenomenal Cognician workshop to help train on a call to action strategy. I will definitely incorporate this into my playbook for stakeholder management strategies and creating favorable client experience outcomes." – Eddie


What can I expect?

Before your Activation Workshop, you'll receive an invitation to our preparatory activation experience. This will include pre-workshop reading material, a short survey, and a digital version of our
Activation Tactics cards.

Activation Workshops run for 2–3 hours. You'll learn about our tried-and-tested activation methodology and will receive an individualized activation plan that's focused on your audience, activation problems, objectives, and results.

You can join one of our upcoming workshops in your city, or we can work together to arrange a customized workshop for your team.

Eight Activation Catalysts

Our activation framework includes eight Activation Catalysts that spark lasting behavior change.



People are more likely to get behind a change they find meaningful.



The odds of changing behavior go up when you give people a Goldilocks level of guidance: not too much; and not too little.



People are intrinsically motivated when invited to contribute to a change.



Far more than information, simple actions drive change.



Making a commitment helps to increase the probability of people changing behavior.



Enabling people to connect boosts the chances of change.



Change is more likely when people reflect on their actions.



You can turbo-charge change at scale when people share their insights about the change experience.

48 Activation Tactics

Our Activation Tactics cards provide tried-and-trusted strategies to activate your people at speed and scale.
