NCDOC Thinkshop is a two-day course taught by our facilitators who are passionate about helping other teammates think more critically, solve problems creatively, and develop a collaborative environment. This course helps leaders across the command as they learn to challenge norms, learn faster, and improve daily by solving everyday problems using unconventional approaches of design thinking. This course was incubated and refined in our very own Makerspace and continues to be delivered across the Fleet.
We believe in developing and strengthening our core competencies - critical thinking, creative problem solving, and collective ownership - across our military and civilian teammates. We also acknowledge we are a team of warfighting geeks who make it a point to read, watch/listen, and play while at and away from work. Below we recommend some books from our Book Abstract series, some of our favorite TED talks, and some video games that we hope will stretch your mind, motivate and inspire you, as well as develop valuable skills.
