How Workshop Coaching can help you design and run better workshops

I have met designers and consultants who facilitated workshops but who weren't actually spending much time designing and testing them like other services and products. I believe that this is a critical step for participant engagement and, more importantly, successful workshop outcomes.

Throughout my career, I have developed a workshop design method to design any workshop for any purpose targeting any outcome with any audience

Bold statement, spydey. 
You betcha. 
And it's true. 

So earlier this year, I launched a new Workshop Coaching service

My coaching approach applies user experience design methods to workshop development. 

You might be wondering: What are my workshop design chops?
  • I have been designing workshops for over 15 years, since my Big Consulting days. 
  • In that time, I have designed and run dozens of workshops for groups as small as 5 to over 120.
  • Every workshop I have ever run has been a bespoke design, using this methodology.
  • I have helped clients design and deliver workshops in both the public and private sector.
  • My workshops get results and move work forward.
  • And people have fun.
Workshop coaching consists of three or more 1-hour working sessions in which we will:
  • Define the purpose of your workshop and the desired outcomes
  • Examine your participants and stakeholders
  • Select the appropriate type of workshop and activities
  • Design those activities (a much-forgotten step!)
  • Test the workshop and plan for disasters
If you have a workshop in mind, I can take you through the process to create or refine your workshop concept. If you have never run a workshop before, I can teach you the process from scratch and help you build a hypothetical workshop; then you can take what you learned and adapt it to suit the needs of your organization.

If you're ready to get started, let's chat! I offer free consultations to talk about your needs and how I can help you. 

[If coaching doesn't interest you or your organization, I also offer custom workshop design and facilitation - both in person and remote.]
