Course Information

Who is this for?

This is perfect for teachers, facilitators, leaders, workplace managers, mentors and students. It works in any setting that benefits from a less-directive and more facilitative style and process.

How long will it take?

The class is ‘in-session’ for 6 weeks, but you have access to the classroom and the material for as long as you would like. We suggest you plan on devoting a minimum of 10 – 15 hours to the course.

Tell me more…

We will approach the learning from a few unique angles! Rather than providing you with platform or public speaking skills, this course will take you a couple levels down and guide you in creating relationship-centric environments that generate increased levels of participation, learning and collaboration in virtually any setting. We help you give people an experience of being their best self and train you in using this to improve engagement. You will have several opportunities to try out what you are learning as we ask you to practice specific skills and understandings in your own life and experience the impact first hand.

I am really looking forward to working with you! My goal is to help you increase participation, learning and collaboration in any setting people come together: classrooms, boardrooms, the workplace, community groups and more. Together we will use profoundly simple yet uniquely effectively processes and structures that will naturally help people be their best selves and elevate human performance.
