A 4-day course on the hidden yet profound principles of group empowerment that allow the natural, collective wisdom of any group to emerge, no matter the context.
About the Course
There is nothing more exciting than leading a dynamic, deliciously powerful group of people as they look at how to transform their lives.
And there is nothing more frustrating than leading a group in which members are silently non-supportive or even openly irritated with each other.
- There are powerful forces at the core of all groups.
- If you know what they are, and how to use them, you’ll be successful in keeping the group’s members focused, effective, and productive.
- As a result, you’ll provide huge value to participants.
When you are not aware of the group’s energy, or don’t know how to work with it, you end up frustrated or discouraged. You know your group needs something from you that you’re not providing. When this happens you might begin to work harder than you need to. This is definitely not necessary!
In this interactive, face-to-face course, you will be given specific strategies and skill sets that will empower you to lead productive and highly-rewarding groups.
You will learn:
- Why people get nervous in groups, and how to help them relax and participate fully.
- How to create an atmosphere of trust within the first twenty minutes of working with a group.
- Why the worrisome thoughts you think while leading a group may not be your own thoughts.
- What “group mind” is and how to work with it to produce maximum impact.
- How to work with a group such that each person gets full value from the conversation, whether or not you have personally interacted with them.
- The primary differences between working with individuals and working with groups.
- How to keep the momentum going when it appears the energy is waning.
Whether you are taking this course to build your coaching practice, to conduct productive staff meetings, or to work with community groups, you will leave with strategies and skill sets that you can apply to any group you lead. Guaranteed!
Leadership Skills for Every Group
Out of this training:
Coaches, consultants, and counselors learn to lead groups with a new level of confidence — changing the lives of more people, charging less per person, and earning far more income.
Executives, managers, and team members learn to successfully elevate the conversation in their meetings, high-level retreats, and the more informal day-to-day work of collaboration.
Public speakers learn to attune to and draw out the natural energy of their audience — without any slick “motivational” pump-up techniques.
Educators and trainers learn to bring a context of 100% clarity, certainty, and structure to their programs — so that their students and participants can relax and fully engage.

How It Works
We use an honor system, and don’t require you to disclose your income. We also honor that both expenses and income factor into your situation, so we ask that you discern the price truly right for you — whether that is below or above your suggested tier.
So that our work serves those who could not otherwise afford it, please invest the amount that is a “stretch” but not a hardship, factoring in your access to outside support (i.e. family and/or fundraising). Referring to the scale below, ask yourself:
What investment level would be comfortable for me?
What level would be a “stretch” but not a hardship — truthfully factoring in my access to outside support?
Am I willing to register at that level?
