Just finished... Wow, so simple, yet so empowering. One of my favorite things from this course is the actual framework itself. I don't mean the framework as a tool, but rather the framework as a mindset. What I mean is: it puts you in a frame of mind that everyone needs to contribute their ideas, come up with solutions, come to an agreement, and decide on what to do... It's really like the design sprint in a nutshell. This 4C framework is like the design sprint disguised as any workshop... It's like taking the design sprint and refactoring it to do whatever you want... Pretty awesome. What are some of your favorite takeaways?
We love what we do. We do everything to maintain a balanced life. We devote time to our family. We make efforts to maintain our health. We manage our finances well. We have done our programs day after day faithfully and conducted hours of research to add mew material. Yet, there comes those moment we feel like there needs to be something else, something more, so level of change. What do you do go manage burn out?
Hey Facilitators! Last week @Rebecca Courtney hosted a special facilitation-themed live training, and it was PURE VALUE. Hundreds of people from all over the world tuned in to learn about: - The crucial role facilitation plays in driving success for your team in 2023. - The secrets to fixing broken collaboration and unlocking true team synergy. - The seven core facilitation skills. - How you can get a special, limited-time discount on our new program, Facilitation Fundamentals. My favorite part of the training was Rebecca discussing the Diamond of Participatory Decision Making (watch that part in the preview). When I first learned about this group process coined by Sam Kaner, it seriously blew my mind... I finally fully understood why we need Facilitators (and why Facilitators should unapologetically be charging top dollar for their invaluable services 💰💰💰💰💰💰💰) You can unlock the complete training here if you want to learn more. What's your take on the Diamond of Participatory Decision Making? Do you think it can transform the way teams collaborate and make decisions?
Dear AJ&Smart Workshoppers, I've just stumpled upon the Teachable page of the Workshopper Master course and it says that the course is currently closed for enrollment. The product page on the Workshopper website does not have any pricing info or call to action either. Will the course be available again soon? Thanks - Chris
I just completed the Design Sprint Masterclass and I am so excited. The knowledge and information as wells as the tools that are passed along are nothing short of extraordinary. AJ&Smart you guys did a MASTERFUL job in putting this training together. I have scheduled my first Sprint at my church as we want to enhance our visitor experience on our campus! I am looking forward to creativity, team building and great ideas to come forth. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know, I would love to hear them! Thanks everyone and have an awesome day!
Wahey!, I happily completed the 'Facilitators Fundamentals Course'. Looking forward to receiving certificate, facilitating a session and meeting some likeminded folks. Many thanks Jonathon and Rebecca for great video sessions and informative training materials.😎
As I do research on the topic of facilitating and consider what I do I have had to ask myself this question, "What is the difference between a facilitator and a trainer." What am I doing that is any different from what I did as a NCO in the Army or as a minister. My job title is facilitator yet I am not called in by any company or organization to sit with a board of people to work through an issue or a project to help find a solution to what they are dealing with. I enter rehab centers and correction facilities to conduct classes that help our clients change their life.
Hello everyone! 👋 I’m a Product Designer and I’ve just finished Facilitation Fundamentals. I’m thinking of taking the next step and doing Master Workshopper so I can run workshops for any scenario. My company is purely remote so I would JUST be doing remote workshops via Miro. Is Master Workshopper still for me since I wouldn’t be doing them physically in person?
Just completing the Workshopper video course by Jonathan... has helped me with the difference between facilitating and FACILITATOR. It has caused a shift for me now I see we are providing solutions and helping companies and others organize better to commit and get results, through our workshops. Please share your views on this .🙏 Thank you AJ& Smart for this great platform, I am completely open to learning 📕 We moooooove as we groooooove in FC 😊
Hi there, I wanted to ask about the design sprint Masterclass by AJ & S. Did any of You finish it? Could You share Your thoughts on it? It's not cheap and the sales funnel to it is build perfectly that makes me a bit uneasy with choosing it.
Just went to the 6-figure Facilitator training course with Jonathan at AJ&Smart. Wow! So much energy, so much truth and authenticity. It ended up being a weird mix of training and therapy. Jonathan cut through the bs and had some really great guidance for a budding facilitator like me. I am not a UX designer but have experienced a lot of the frustration that was discussed, I’ve probably caused some of the frustrations too…oops. I'm sure a lot of you here were there and they didn’t record it but would definitely recommend going if and when they do more. Thank you AJ&Smart
Wow! 4 weeks ago, my colleague @Ryan de Metz and my team at AJ&Smart welcomed the first cohort of students to the first coaching call of our new program, Facilitation Fundamentals. Four calls later, we've made connections for life and will really miss chatting with this bunch ☹️ So what was my biggest KEY takeaway from these coaching calls? 1. Community is EVERYTHING Facilitation and Workshopping are relatively new concepts and can sometimes feel like a lonely career path. In these coaching calls, we noticed the boost it gave our students when they were among like-minded people who were equally passionate about facilitating and workshopping themselves. It was great to see our students come together, sharing tips and advice about Facilitation and workshopping, empathizing with each other's challenges, and celebrating each other's successes! Thanks Cohort 1 (I wish I could tag all 130 of you here but the post would be tooooo long😅) for your engagement, support, and enthusiasm over the last few weeks. We do not doubt that you all will master the world of Facilitation, and we look forward to staying connected with you in this community.💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛 If anyone is interested in joining the next cohort for this new program, DM me or my colleagues @Ryan de Metz or @Jakub Michalski, and we can provide you with more details.

Hi all! @Rebecca Courtney Please, could you help me with this doubt. What is the role of the Decisor in exercise 3 concept (when she/he has to sketch the solution), does she/he also have to do this exercise or does she/he only vote for it at the end of Day 2? It is a bit confusing for me because in the tutorial video there are 4 participants, but only 3 solutions are shown, so I had this doubt.
hello everuone, i just fibished the cours of the design sprint masterclass and i want to know more about the live calls of Q&A. And, also want to know if there's a special groupe of us the student; sins i can't find the facebook groupe anymore ! Thank You!
My plan is to experience the course 1x all the the way to completion and to enjoy the energy of the facilitator. I learn so much just by watching J.C. and the way he engages with us. Then, I plan watch it all a second time and start to envision how I will facilitate workshops with my own team.Great stuff. So fun!
