Live Interactive Workshop Formats
Each workshop— regardless of delivery format -- is an interactive, activity-based experience where participants are invited to learn through self-reflection, interactions in pairs or small groups, and engagement with the whole group. Workshops combine innovative, interactive strategies with essential principles of leadership and communication to create a robust learning experience.
Delivery may either be as a live on-site event or a live video technology event — or a combination of both, depending on your needs. Each of these delivery formats has its benefits which you can see detailed below.
Dedicated workshops can be customized and scheduled to meet the unique needs of your organization. Contact us to schedule or for group rates. Note that dedicated workshops can be either live on-site events or live video technology events.
Open-enrollment workshops provide an excellent training opportunity for individuals or small groups. To reach the broadest audience, most of our open-enrollment workshops are live video technology events.
