I offer a combination of live workshops and self-paced courses that support multiple levels of successful remote work.
Live workshops help build basic skills for team members, managers, coaches, and facilitators who are trying to improve the way they work remotely. Those new to remote work, struggling with going remote, or even experienced practitioners wanting to develop new skills are welcome.
Exceptional Remote Facilitation workshop – For those of us leading meetings, facilitating a distributed event is different. It is very different. But basic facilitation principles still count and new principles become important for facilitating remotely. In this course, you learn those principles by experiencing an exceptional distributed facilitation. For more information on this live workshop, read more here.
Work Together Anywhere workshop – For those of us working remotely — either by choice or not — we know there has to be a better way to work together. What does successful remote work look like? How do team agreements differ? How might we support each other remotely? How can we reflect, celebrate, and connect with each other remotely? This live course allows you to work with a distributed group of individuals and learn how you can become a highly functional team. For more information on this live workshop, read more here.
The Distributed Dojo – As a team member, team lead, manager, or coach, we often find a new technique that requires a small group of people to practice safely. We need rapid feedback. We may need help adapting the technique to how our teams work. The Distributed Dojo is a safe space to practice and learn these techniques and co-create. For questions about the dojo or to sign up for one or more sessions, please see our Distributed Dojo page.
These workshops focus on learning principles and deeper skills for becoming a successful distributed agile team and are based on our book our book, From Chaos to Successful Distributed Agile Teams. This self-paced format provides video lectures and homework experiments you can try individually or with your team. I and Johanna Rothman support you through a Slack community.
- Rapidly Remote (FREE) – Have you and your team suddenly found yourself shifting from an office to a completely remote work environment? This course discusses the impacts of that change and how you and your team can put together the right tools and the best working agreements to stay connected.
- Prepare for Successful Distributed Agile Teams – this course introduces a team member, team leader, manager or executive to some of the introductory concepts from our book. It will allow you to check your readiness for launching distributed agile teams.

With over 4 hours of video content and discussion labs provided with the authors, it should answer many of your questions on being successful with distributed agile teams.

"Great course on distributed working. Even though I have been doing it with several teams for a while I still got a few good ideas." - Kevin Sheehan, Principal Architect at Capgemini
