Who Is This Course For?
An independent trainer, facilitator, or coach who is running your own practice and leading your own sessions
Who Is This Course Not For?
If you aren’t leading workshops, classes, keynotes, or trainings, you will greatly dislike this course
This course is not designed for passive consumers as we’ll be actively practicing each strategy
This course is not for people who want to sit on the sidelines of content-heavy or “sage-on-the-screen” style sessions
What’s the Investment?
That depends on what you’re looking for!
Tier 1: $997
All 6 facilitated sessions + 3 Applied AMA Coaching Clinics
Tier 2: $1997
Everything from Tier 1 + a 4-7 person small group mentoring/implementation session before and after with Chad
Tier 3: $3997
Everything from Tiers 1 and 2 + one-to-one mentoring sessions before and after with Chad
Space is extremely limited. This isn’t just a marketing line as we want to keep our sessions as personalized and applied as possible. As you consider this investment in yourself, note that we often look at the cost of a book, course, or coach. More rarely do we consider the cost of being in the same exact place 1 year from now.

Recordings of all the sessions sent to you after the course

What’s the schedule for these sessions?
The sessions will be held once a week for six weeks. There will also be a few, creative asyncronous elements scattered throughout.
How many attendees will be in the course?
We’ll cap attendees at 49 for the large group sessions included in Tier 1 registration (so we can fit on one Zoom screen 😊
Small group sessions included in Tier 2 registration will have a max of 4 to 7 people.
And Tier 3 registrants will get one-to-one personalized mentoring with Chad.
When is this happening?
These are the “dates on the calendar” so to speak, but we’ll also be in regular communication before, during and after as well.

Will this be recorded?
All of the sessions will happen live, but we’ll send the recordings of them out after the course ends so you have them for future reference.
Are we going to be in small groups or all together?
Yes and yes. Designing for engagement requires the format to be shifted often. Pairs, small groups, whole group shares, solo-reflection, application time, etc.
Chad will be modeling the facilitation styles and techniques as he teaches them.
Can I get a recording of the sessions even if I don’t attend?
Ideally, you have the times blocked off on your calendar to give yourself the time and space to really jump to a new level in your engagement skills. Life happens though, so if you wind up missing a session or two, all recordings will be sent out to all registrants after the course ends. Recordings will only be made available to our the participants, though. In other words, “what happens in our sessions stays in our sessions.”
What happens if I don’t like it?
If you don’t love the experience and get heaps of value, we’ll refund you your money. Period. (Big claim, we know. But we only design experiences that matter and make a difference.)
