The Capstone Project is the goal of the Masterclass. It’s a short digital workshop that you will run in your work environment using the skills, tools and theory you learned.

„My capstone project was a lot of fun. We achieved great results in a short time. The feedback was very positive – from all colleagues. From young and older."

What strength can you play when guiding a group? In Module 1 we'll discover that answer.

We'll learn the characteristics of good facilitation and explore the 8 archetypes that a facilitator can have.

Week 2: Set up your Facilitation System
Distributed work isn’t temporary. In fact, it’s just in its infancy.

In this module we’ll learn the framework and tools to design and run workshops that work every time. And we’re going to explore how digital whiteboards can help us to give everyone a voice.

Live Workshop: Go from scratch to your workshop design. Leave with a prepared digital whiteboard and your key activities.

Week 4: Facilitate with Impact
Time to take your learnings to the working environment.

In Module 4 you will hold your workshop and follow up with all stakeholders. In the video lessons we’ll cover how to facilitate sustainable impact and why discomfort is what we need in a world of easy conversations.

Live Workshop: In this workshop, you’ll reflect on your capstone project and differentiate between short-term and long-term impact in working with groups.

The next cohort starts on the 4th of October and goes until the 11th November, 2021. Live workshops are every Thursday afternoon. (2pm - 4pm CEST). Do you want to learn more about the course structure and the learning objectives? Then book a call with René for 1:1 walkthrough.

Is this course right for me?
There are no direct prerequisites for participation in the course. The course is designed to start from scratch and together we build an understanding of roles and an effective system for facilitation. The only important thing is that you need to keep track of the video lessons and attend the live workshops, as this is the core of the course.
expand_more
What distinguishes this course from other facilitation trainings?
Most trainings often take place in one or two consecutive days. This forces the participant to soak up all the theory like a sponge. Shortly afterwards, you are left to your own devices when it comes to the transmission work. This course is fundamentally different because it is part-time and aims to support the transference work through social circles, coaching, accountability and your own capstone project. You will not only build knowledge, but also self-confidence through first successes.
expand_more
How much time should I expect to spend?
You can expect to spend 2-4 hours per week. Unlike other courses, this course is part-time. Therefore, the course adapts to your agenda and not the other way around. The time commitment may increase if you want to put more work into the practice. We know from experience that the learning effect is greater when you try to apply the theory you have learned directly in your work environment.
expand_more
How is this course taught?
The video lessons are pre-recorded, tangible and in small chunks so that you can visit them on your own pace. We package the lessons in such a way that you can derive clear insights and actions. The live workshops always take place in a smaller group setting to promote direct exchange between participants and create an open, personal learning environment. This way, people learn from each other and can help each other with challenges. In the workshops we put a lot of emphasis on a practical reference and a "learn by doing" mentality.
