What makes this event special...

This is a blended learning program. That means it includes different learning methods to support a variety of learners and information.

You’ll get access to: one-on-one coaching, experiential group workshops, option to work out of class with a buddy, curated online content, and a physical workbook with individual and buddy practice exercises.

Let’s walk through what that looks like:

Within 48 hours of registering, you’ll get an email with detailed logistics, a survey to fill out if you want to opt into buddy practice, and a link to schedule your one-on-one coaching call. Then, during the two weeks before the first workshop, you’ll have your one-on-one coaching call to define your learning goals and get know your facilitator.

On November 5th, you’ll start live workshops (!!!), get you printed workbook, meet your buddy, and get access to the online content. From there, you’ll meet with the group for six, two hour, in-person workshops on Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30pm. The first three workshops are focused on internal emotional skills. Then we get a break week to take a deep breath and accomodate Thanksgiving. Then we’ll come back for our final three workshops focused on interpersonal skills.

Finally, you’ll close with an exit one-on-one coaching call to reflect on what you learned and how you’ll apply it going forward.

And that, good friends, is Frankly 101.
