workshop and mentoring process

The creative mind plays with objects it loves.

The Workshop Process

A time and place for group study, exercise, practice and play for the purpose of exploration and discovery of a specific topic or creative project. This includes instruction and guidance in specific skills and techniques through a lively participatory process.

Workshops are organized by modules. Modules may be combined to create customized workshops focused on your needs. Each module is 2-2.5 hours.

Before you come, gather your thoughts, questions, and personal concerns relating to this topic. We will devote time to individual problem solving.

At the beginning of each workshop, I will outline the topics to be covered, and ask each participant to add items that they would like addressed. Together, we will develop an agenda tailored to the needs of the group.

During the course of the workshop, besides providing hard information and resources on the subject, I will ask questions designed to strengthen and structure your thought processes and guide you to your own best answers. There will also be exercises to develop personal mental tools and group exchanges to share information and spark insight. When you have completed the workshop you will have new and powerful ways to identify and create solutions to both the issues we addressed and to related topics that may arise in the future.

The Mentoring Process

Individual analysis and targeted strategies for improving current work processes and achieving an articulated set of goals.

First of all, I listen to you. What do you want? What do you need? What have you done already to accomplish this? We have a candid discussion to identify and define your goals.

Next, I help you prioritize, and we begin to consider and develop resources and strategies and a time frame for attaining your goals.

After that, we decide together what your budget is for investing in this project. We consider not only money, but also your time, energy, and enthusiasm.

Based on this information, we agree to a realistic commitment of resources to allow a successful achievement of your stated goals.

After our initial consultation, I will give you a comprehensive summary of our discussion, which will also serve as your agreement to engage my services. If needed, we will arrange series of scheduled follow-ups. I will be hands-on with realizing your goals and turning your vision into reality. Tasks and action items will be specified and measurable, enabling us to continually evaluate our progress as we move forward.
