Team Building While You Learn

While telling stories from your lives, and giving business presentations, your group will become a team.

As you work together, struggle at times, have breakthroughs, and share personal experiences, you’ll gain real camaraderie. You’ll get to know your peers more deeply, share insights and support each other as you learn.

  • The workshop is hand-on, interactive, and tailored to meet your individual needs. You’ll each build on your strengths and work on your own specific challenges
  • Each member of the class will learn how to develop content and deliver powerful presentations
  • Your exercises will be captured on video so you can see your progress in class and have a record of Jim’s feedback long after the workshop is over
  • You’ll get helpful feedback from Jim and your peers that is candid, yet supportive and actionable
  • You will learn how to take your personal stories and use them to make business points
