Who Is This For?

This course is for managers, educators, facilitators, community leaders – anyone looking to get results from individuals, classes or teams. Are you are constantly working to inspire, direct and support people? If you work with any type of group, this course will help you build relationships, increase productivity and foster collaboration.

We have spent 25 years training leaders like you with uniquely holistic, relevant and attainable structures and processes to help build highly productive teams and classrooms.

For the Workplace: We know the challenge of bringing people together, dealing with apathy and getting everyone on the same page. The Master Class will help you facilitate better meetings, foster buy-in and support people being their best selves.

For Education: Getting students interested and engaged while developing their own voice and expression is so hard when they can so easily keep their distance. With a combined 40 years of teaching and training educators K-16, we can help you create relationship-centric classrooms that you are proud of and get students participating as agents of their own learning.

For Facilitation and Community Groups: Fostering dialogue, participation and getting buy-in when people are apathetic or checked out is so difficult! Instead of tricks or gimmicks, we train you in specific processes to build alignment and engagement so the group you are working with is tuned-in and with you.

Helpful in the Current Moment…

This is a short video welcome from Michael Donahue and Brady Rhodes, the Instructors for the Course, highlighting the need for new engagement strategies like those offered in the class during this challenging time of the coronavirus.

How Long Will It Take?

Most participants find that the class is thought-provoking and can disrupt normal habits of working and being with people (in a good way)! Taking the time to think about and apply the learning will really help. While you could go through the six modules in 10-15 hours total, we recommend taking 2-3 weeks. Learn 1-2 modules a week and take time to reflect and practice the ideas during your normal activities and interactions.

The Deep Dive Discussions are a valuable resource to learn from others, ask your questions and get support specific to your own situation. They also help hold you accountable! While the Deep Dives are not mandatory, we highly recommend participating. We find that learners who do are more engaged and have higher ownership for their learning. We schedule at least two a week at different times of the day. Problem-solve current challenges and brain-storm solutions with the experienced course instructors and other participants.

Tell me more…

In order to develop your skills as an Engagement Specialist 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.

There is free access to some of the material below and you can see all the different lessons and get a sense of how the course is structured.

The End Result

MUCH GREATER ownership, achievement, engagement, partnership.

MUCH LESS apathy, drama, miscommunication, distance and low participation

Professionally AND Personally

All BoldLeaders courses are designed with the whole YOU in mind. Our work will be immediately useful in the workplace for sure, yet these are human-centered practices that work in any environment. We know they will be helpful to you personally throughout your life with friends, family, partners and more.

Certification

An end of the course assessment is available for everyone who would like to receive a certificate of completion from BoldLeaders. We are working on developing the course for Continuing Education Credit and will apply that as it becomes available.
