Design for Transformation: Applying a Coaching Structure to Workshop Design
Time & Location
About the Event
Planning a workshop can be intimidating when you have lots of great activities but are unsure about how to organize the flow of the workshop to create the greatest impact for your participants. Fortunately we can look to the world of leadership coaching for an understanding of how people change and use this natural engagement progression to structure workshops, trainings, and events.
In this highly interactive workshop you will learn -
* A simple 5-step framework to apply to your trainings and workshops
* How to scaffold skills, behaviors, and complexity to support risk-taking and maximize engagement
* Strategies for including all voices and managing power dynamics
* How activities from improvisational theater fit naturally into this model
* Practical insights and tools to apply to your own programs
If you have a program you’re actively designing, bring what you have and you can work on it during the session. This will be a fun and interactive workshop. Come with your video on and ready to participate!
