Facilitation Master Class with Design Thinking Option

November 20, 2014 @ 9:30 am - 6:00 pm

Over one intense day, we’ll take a small group of Design Gym enthusiasts and prepare them to run groups large and small. At the end of the day, you’ll be ready to run groups on your own and with others. 

You’ll  walk away with fresh skills on group facilitation, planning and management, as well as deeper experience with each. This Master class isn’t a day of us talking at you, it’s a day of practical exercises and discussions to prepare you for better meeting management.

Add on a second day: The Design Thinking Bootcamp!

Day One: Facilitation Mindsets and Skillsets

Day Two: Design Thinking Bootcamp

Adding on the Design Thinking bootcamp will give you the context to begin leading groups through design thinking exercises and sprints. We’ll give you additional time to lead groups through the process, practicing as you learn.

Also, this class is a critical checkpoint in becoming eligible to begin running events and classes with The Design Gym on your own. After successfully completing this course and doing some practice workshops with us, we will begin feeding you exciting opportunities to work on projects and events, from running our weekend and day-long bootcamps, to creating and running your own workshops.
