Teaching is not a job. It's a passion for me. I also prefer not to lecture. I would rather engage you in experiences, exercises and conversations where we share the learning. With that, I offer a combination of live workshops and self-paced courses that allow you to improve our remote work.
Live workshops help build and enhance skills for those trying to improve the way they work remotely. You learn by experiencing the techniques in these courses. Those new to remote work, struggling with going remote, or even experienced practitioners wanting to develop new skills are welcome.
Work Together Anywhere workshop – For those of us working remotely — either by choice or not — we feel a better way to work together exists. But what does successful remote work look like? What carries over from physical office work and what should we leave behind? 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 true team. For more information on this live workshop, read more here.
Web Events That Connect – Perhaps you have meetings you occasionally run that are now remote. You have no professional facilitation training and you don't have time to learn. You struggle to keep you and your team on track while running these remote events. Need ideas on how to connect and collaborate online? Contact us to learn more about the new workshop.
Exceptional Remote Facilitation workshop – For those regularly leading meetings, events and training, facilitating remotely brings new challenges and skills. In this course, you learn those principles of good remote facilitation by experience. For more information on this live workshop, read more here.
K5Labs (coming soon) – Courses help introduce you to skills in working with remote teams, but where do you practice? Where can you learn what your new collaboration tools can do and what you should NOT do with them? How can you practice new remote facilitation skills like breakouts and how does it differ for different tools? Welcome to K5Labs! A place for you to practice and explore. Contact us to find out more about K5Labs.
Note: All live workshop members will receive an invitation to the labs so they can practice and grow the skills they learned.
These workshops focus on learning principles and deeper skills for becoming a successful distributed agile team and are based on our book, From Chaos to Successful Distributed Agile Teams.

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