The Transformative Trainer

A cohort program with Learning to Transform

Launch your unique training for social change in only 8 weeks!

After a period of global disruption, you have the chance to build something amazing alongside the communities you serve.

But with so many needs and demands; it can be hard to get people aligned to focus their energy in a common direction.

Are you asking yourself these questions?

  • How can I connect the issues I work on every day to the more urgent needs that constantly demand people’s attention?
  • How does my community become more than passive participants and start to take real ownership of the work?
  • How do I equip new leaders to take action so I’m not always relying on the same folks (and burning out our most precious leaders)?

The answer to these questions is Transformative Training.

Space in this 8-week cohort program is limited. Sign up today to secure your spot!

We are offering an 8-week cohort program to a limited number of participants that will guide you step-by-step as you strategize, plan, design, and lead a training program that helps you multiply your impact and form more leaders.

Launch your unique training for social change in only 8 weeks!

You know that we accomplish so much more together than we can alone.

The secret to Transformative Training is becoming a multiplier; equipping even more people to use their unique skills and ideas in support of a common cause.

We are offering an 8-week cohort program to only 8 participants that will guide you step-by-step as you strategize, plan, design, and lead a training program that helps you multiply your impact and form more leaders.

People who sign-up get two additional 1:1 support sessions to get feedback on your training materials and ONE FULL YEAR of access to our “Community of Practice” sessions.

The program will help you and your team accomplish the following:

  • Build alignment on what success looks like for your campaign or program.
  • Figure out who you want to take action and learn what supports they need to do it.
  • Fill your training with more of the right people and keep them engaged!

And also…

  • Use the right message over the right channels to help your audience grow.
  • Create a training agenda that helps learners build confidence, clarity, and commitment.
  • Build on your unique facilitation strengths and artfully manage difficult conversations.
In order to maximize support, space is extremely limited.

We have compiled what we’ve learned in 25 years into a potent 8-week program that gets you results. By offering to a group, we are able to provide support at a lower rate than our customized consulting. In doing so, we hope to make these tools available to a wider group of leaders who are using training and education for social change.

The 8-week cohort includes four online sessions on Thursdays Nov 2nd, Nov 16th, Nov 30th, & Dec 14th from 10am-12pm pacific // 12pm-2pm central // 1pm-3pm eastern.

Sessions will be held in English and we can provide simultaneous interpretation and materials in Spanish upon request.

Anyone who wants to use training and education for social change can participate in the 8-week cohort program.

For best results, we recommend that participants apply these tools for use with the community rather than a classroom.

To help you succeed, we highly recommend that attendees are sponsored by an organization. If you need help getting this opportunity approved please indicate this in your application. We may make exceptions for community activists and consultants who are working for social change on a case-by-case basis.

We highly encourage participants to attend all sessions. But we get it, sometimes life happens. We will send all materials and a video recording of each session to participants to make sure you can follow along even if you are unable to make a session.

This is an opportunity to get equipped to create and lead your own training on the issues you work on every day. If you are interested in having us design and lead a training for your group, we recommend scheduling a free consultation so we can better understand your needs.

Yes. 100%. If you don’t think you got the full value of the program you get a full refund.

You shouldn’t. We have experience working with thousands of people all over the United States and Latin America to design, lead, and plan learning events. But we don’t know what’s happening on the ground for you. That’s why we are supporting YOU to take the lead. Our goal is to leave you in a better position than you were before, so you can solve the next challenges on your own (but we hope you call us!)
