Who Is This Course For?

An independent trainer, facilitator, or coach who is running your own practice and leading your own sessions

An educator or corporate trainer who is delivering and leading workshops and trainings
Leader, trainers, facilitators, and educators who want to see higher engagement in your workshops, trainings, and meetings

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: $1499
All 5 facilitated sessions + 2 Applied AMA Coaching Clinics

Tier 2: $3997
Everything from Tier 1 + one-to-one mentoring sessions before and after with Chad

Space is extremely limited and Engage to Educate only runs once per year. 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. Still, this is an investment. If you’re not quite ready for that, you always have the option to buy our recorded Engage to Educate Masterclass right in our store. 

What People Say After Engage to Educate

This was one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever had. Chad provided dozens of practical tools, insightful customized coaching, and a chance to meet a bunch of really stellar people that are now part of my circle. My heart is full of inspiration—and way less anxiety. I can’t recommend this class highly enough and I am eternally grateful for the mark Chad has put on my work and my life!

Dennis Skinner

Facilitator, Coach, Trainer, and Speaker

“Engage to Educate was phenomenal! Chad pushed each and everyone of us to think differently, engaged us with his humor, and encouraged us to learn from each other. It was truly a workshop like no other.”

Nyia Harris

Owner at Nyia Harris LLC

“Not only was Chad’s content and delivery fantastic in helping us learn by doing, but the added benefit of hundreds of years of collective experience from which to learn was also invaluable.”

Abbie Uno-Keel

Director of Training at Cru

“An invaluable experience that would not have been gained through an asynchronous course. Chad’s attention to detail and real life application to each of our settings sparked my own creativity. I was also able to form lasting connections amongst the entire cohort.

Amanda Bohlen

Extension Leader at The Ohio State University

“The initial prep video alone before sessions even officially started was worth the price of admission. Holy cow.”

Lisa Gerber

Communication and Story Strategist

How many attendees will be in this course?

We’ll cap attendees at 25 for the large group sessions included in Tier 1 registration (so we can fit on one Zoom screen). Though you’ll be matched with a small group as well.

There are also 4 spots for Tier 2 registrants who will receive one-to-one personalized mentoring sessions with Chad.

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.

What if I have to miss a session?

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 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.)

That said, based on our experience, 100% of past participants have loved Engage to Educate.

How do I register?

Engage to Educate starts April 2024 and only runs once per calendar year.
