Workshops differ from training in that they are aimed at a specific outcome rather than a general understanding about a subject area. Workshops are facilitated by the Transformation coach, but the main work is done by the participants in the workshop. Workshops may include training materials, but that is usually incorporated to guide you to a specific outcome.

The following list is a sample of some workshops I've run over the years. Some of these were purpose built to meet a specific organization's requirement. Some are more general and, while purpose built, can be applied to a large number of organizations. And some are based on pre-prepared workshop materials.

Generally, transformations require the development of some subject specific workshops to meet organizational needs.

Note: A number of the workshops are designed to teach specific behaviors in a psychologically safe environment. The idea is that you can test out specific ideas in a small group before going out and using them in a wider context.
