Workshops

canstockphoto16510328Are fear, uncertainty, and doubt keeping you and your company from reaching important goals? Unfortunately, the answer is “yes” for many people and companies today. Feeling “stressed out” can become so much of a habitual pattern, we may not even be aware we are making decisions based on fear instead of on the best interests of the company.

Developed specifically for the business world, our workshop, “Thriving through Uncertainty: Putting Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt to Work for You,” gives you the tools to move beyond your fear-based habits to create powerful new ones, including the following:

  • Recognizing when you’re acting from fear-based doubt and why this can happen to all of us
  • Identifying the trapdoors that can lure you into poor decision-making
  • Harnessing anxiety and uncertainty, instead of allowing them to make decisions for you
  • Focusing on achieving your goals through the Greater Good Perspective Shift

We customize each workshop based on your organization’s needs. From a lunch-n-learn for new hires, to a two-hour workshop for an entire department, to a half-day retreat for mid- or upper-level executives, we tailor our programs to any number and type of attendees and available time.

Not your typical corporate workshop

Jeff with hammockOh, and did we mention that our workshops are actually a lot of fun? In our own careers, we’ve both attended “workshops” that were really a form of slow torture known as “death by PowerPoint,” with facilitators intoning slide after slide of boring material that you could have just read yourself (but probably wouldn’t have wanted to).

We promise that is not what our workshops are like.

We are, first and foremost, storytellers. We think it’s important to tell engaging stories (and as survivors of the so-called Doubting Disease we certainly have some good ones). More importantly, storytelling is an entertaining and memorable way to share useful information, such as business-related “aha!” moments from the world of science that might otherwise be quite yawn-inducing.

We also pepper our workshops with interactive activities that allow you to apply immediately what you are learning to your own business and personal situations, so that you can begin using the tools right away.

Helping you make these tools a part of your life

You’ve probably been to workshops where you’re really excited during the event and for a few days afterwards. But then the canstockphoto8080959material slowly slips away, as real life becomes once again front and center.

We have a different model.

We want to help you stay excited about what you learn in “Thriving through Uncertainty: Putting Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt to Work for You,” and help you incorporate the tools into your everyday work life. To that end, we offer the option of monthly Skills Application Groups after each workshop.  These meetings give you an opportunity to set goals, practice using the tools, and discuss your successes and challenges with us and other workshop attendees, so that you achieve the maximum benefit from the time you’ve invested.
