The Ikea Effect
A psychological principle that confirms people place a disproportionate value on things they make or build themselves. How many of you have held onto that chair, bed, table, desk with a funny nordic name way longer than perhaps more expensive furniture you purchased that was already assembled?
It's hard to argue with the fulfillment we get as human beings through the act of creation. I should know. For 13 years, I co-created workshops and designed facilitated experiences with some of the world’s most innovative technology companies. I realized that many individuals sought tools and the knowledge to design effective workshops on their own. They want to be a creator! At Meahana - which is actually two words “mea” and “hana” - meaning an object, person or thing to work/create, A key aspect of our mission is to “Create Creators”
The Challenge with Creation Today:
The workshop design tools available on the market for creators/facilitators are often difficult to use, reminiscent of Ikea tools and instructions.
