I hope you have enjoyed my recent postings about how to organise a masterclass. I said at the outset I wanted to be disruptive, so I hope I’ve got you thinking about – new ways of experiencing learning and a topic that you could introduce to a group. So if you want more just get in touch…
I run masterclasses to hack authenticity. Plain and simple, hacks that lead to high performance. Potential topic areas include…
1) Being an authentic individual/leader/coach.
I am back on Storm Beach shaking up the masterclass movement! This short vid describes the nuts and bolts of getting a masterclass off the ground, and the good news is – it’s really easy. Just an 8 step process…
Here is the process in black and white…
1) Contact your network to agree the content for the masterclass, their participation and venue.
2) Contact me to agree a date and the final costs.
3) Book venue in principle.
4) Contact your network with the estimated
As promised I have headed off to Storm Beach with my trusty flip chart and some great ideas to get the masterclass model moving…
OK so dealing with the first problem – open courses can be expensive. Primarily because providers have to market the course and cover costs such as venue etc. Sometimes you are looking as much as £499 for a one dayer or £3,000 as an in-house group. My solution is easy I charge £1500 for the event, with
As a creative individual I tend to jump to different possibilities quite quickly. Which is why I am always on the lookout to challenge the human development industry so that it can meet participants needs and break free from tradition. Expensive open courses have been a bug bear of mine for sometime. Value for money can be questionable, unless you are the provider that is! There is no scam to detect, just a more authentic way to deliver the learning.
Now the World Cup really is upon us as Brazil and Croatia get the ball well and truly rolling. Will flair prevail as the Brazilians delight the home crowds. Or will the coachable Germans and Italians grind out another competition. Perhaps a combination of both will lead to success maybe, the Spanish – coachable yet precise….
As one of the first recognized texts to hit the bookshelves I also focus on the player so that he/she can get the most from coaching, whether
We can learn so much in our lives and work from the world of sport. With the World Cup only a couple of days away this weeks posting seeks to explore how we can get the most from coaching. Whether you are playing at the highest level or in the park read on…
Are you coachable? And if you are – how coachable are you? These are the two questions that my book (It’s Not About The Coach) aims to answer.
Content creation is paramount these days, coupled with technology the possibilities are never-ending. I have always been drawn to podcasts, for their simplicity and accessibility. However, I had wrongly assumed that creating one would be far more complex than simply listening. That is until I discovered the Auphonic app.
I am somewhat of an early adopter when it comes to technology, however, grappling with functionality doesn’t always come naturally to me. Auphonic is an ‘audio post production web service
Personally the path to being authentic needs to be a natural one. One in which we embrace the laws of nature, so that we can harness energy and vitality. But how do we know when we get there? The work of Csikszentmihalyi (Cheek-sent-me-hi-ee) has always led me to describing these states as flow. Now with the help of the Flow Genome Project I have contemporary resources for describing flow states. Ones that I hope you too will be inspired by.
A year or so ago I came across Soul Biographies by Nic Askew, and I quickly signed up for his weekly films. The word soul initially grabbed me and I couldn’t resist when I read Nic state ‘When the soul is caught between the frames of a film, the viewer might catch sight of their own reflection.’ Nic’s films have always been part of my routine to connect with greatness. The black and white imagery evoking all sorts of feelings
There has never been a better time to connect to podcasts, the content and technology is now outstanding. They are easily accessed and are great way to keep abreast of the new. I use the Pocket casts app, no hassle – just my chosen episodes downloaded as they are broadcast. In order to be authentic we need to create form, podcasts are great source of inspiration, meaning purpose and connections.
My favourite podcast for some time has been The Unmistakable Creative.
