Language, words, their use, and meanings are constantly evolving and changing. Some words fall into disuse, while new words are created, some beginning as colloquial terms, which are eventually entered into official dictionaries, because they’re so commonly used.
It’s a lengthy and detailed process that takes place before a new word is added to the Oxford English Dictionary after first spending a considerable length of time on a so-called “watch list”. However, certain words acquire additional meanings, “workshop” being one.
The workshop’s original meaning – “a room or building in which goods are manufactured or repaired” – has been retained. An additional connotation was added – “a meeting at which a group of people engage in intensive discussion and activity on a particular project”.
Hence, organisational workshops have become an important, integral part of developing individual persons as well as groups, en masse, within an establishment in which all are encouraged to work towards a common goal – for individual and the greater good.
According to the world’s popular information and go-to guru – Google – an organisation may be defined as “an organised group of people with a particular purpose, such as a business or government department”, and/or “the action of organising something”. The fact is that without establishing some type of hierarchy, plan or strategy and identifying roles, plus the people capable of filling and fulfilling those roles.
In the modern world, people need to work in order to sustain themselves and enjoy a decent quality of life, whilst businesses need to employ people. It’s simple and straightforward – no people, no business and vice versa. However, people, their likes, dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, aspirations and measures of success differ, sometimes vastly.
Despite such differences, these folks typically all form part of an organisation, in which they’re expected to perform tasks to achieve a common goal – productively, cohesively, simultaneously achieving job satisfaction and happiness that’s pertinent to their respective roles and performance.
