Manage episode 271983612 series 2493110
We’ve been delivering in-person workshops for years. We’re comfortable. Give us a marker pen, some butcher’s paper and some decent catering: We’re good to go!
When Covid hit earlier this year, many of us had to shift gears and deliver workshops online. We had to adjust to new technology, new ways of experiencing workshops, a range of energy levels. We all started feeling like First Time Facilitators!
That’s the conversation I have with today’s guest, Marcus Crow.
Marcus has an insane amount of in-person workshop experience. He’s also the co-founder of 10,000 HOURS. They design and deliver content for Training, Conferences and Offsites, and they have been honing their craft for more than 20 years. Prior to starting 10,000 Hours, he co-founded, built and sold Phuel / Oxygen Learning to John Singleton's STW (now WPP).In this episode, you’ll learn:
What it takes to adapt a face to face workshop, and move it online
How you can build your flexibility muscles as a facilitator
What to do when you encounter resistance from someone in your workshop
Good tips for timing for your virtual sessions
Key considerations if you’re thinking of dropping your job and starting your facilitation business
