Deliver Programs that Inspire and Empower
How do you keep participants engaged? What makes the learning unforgettable?
This series explores the mindset, skillset and practices for creating an interactive, exciting learning environment. The program is geared toward the virutal learning environment, but can easily be applied to in-person classes as well.
What Makes Classes Meaningful?
Virtual gatherings come with built-in distractions, the threat of boredom and potential technology hurdles. It takes a skilled facilitator to create a container for connection, engagement, and learning.
Each class in this 6-session series is led by seasoned Leadership that Works’ facilitators, built on the knowledge and experience of thousands of classes delivered over two decades.

Session 1: Bring All of Yourself
with Steven Filante
Part of the fun of leading teleclasses is bringing your unique voice, style and presence to the teaching process. You will explore any fears or anxieties you are carrying about facilitating and establish new viewpoints that support bringing your authentic self, strengths and talents. You will discover how to show up fully from the first minute. You’ll learn how to use your voice and energy to create connection and deepen engagement.
Session 2: Engage Participants
with Jagruti Gala
How do you transform a blank, faceless space into a warm circle of learning? In this class you’ll learn how to use vulnerability and playfulness to support participants to be seen, to belong and to contribute. You’ll explore the use of imagery and creativity to meet different learning styles. You will also understand the elements of blending play and structure, holding spaciousness and managing time and choosing volunteers to support learning and inclusion. This class will also create awareness on the importance of acknowledging imperfection, letting go of the agenda and working with live feedback!
Session 3: Deliver Content Creatively
with Virginia Kellogg
If you can be a creative facilitator face to face, you can do the same on a teleclass. Within every fantastic teleclass experience is a blend of stories, humor, structure and content. The timeline gives us a place to start with the structure and content, and we add our own wildness to make the teleclass sing. We will examine how to find our own stories that come both from the content and what participants say. We will explore how to set aside convention and the "right" way to facilitate in service of deeper connection and more fun.
Session 4: Weave in Awareness of Power, Privilege, Race and Culture
with Kim Fowler
How does your awareness of your own power, privilege, race and culture deepen your facilitation and your sense of authenticity? You will discover the many ways identities impact people’s beliefs, values and decisions. This teleclass helps you reflect on how your identities impact you personally, as a coach and as a facilitator. Learn how to facilitate from awareness of power and privilege, and honoring of race and culture, so that participants awaken to their full expression of themselves.
Session 5: Give Inspirational Feedback
with Pernille Plantener
How can you offer feedback as a powerful growth opportunity for the whole class? Interactions with students from a no-fault mindset support deep learning and bold experimentation. Instead of giving feedback using labels and evaluations, learn ways to support clarity with observations and specific examples. When you veer from your agenda or you are running out of time, you can choose interventions that support your learning objectives for the class, build inclusion and still have the space for personal reflection.
Session 6: Create your Personal Operating System Using 9 Principles
with Guthrie Sayen
What is your deepest motivation for facilitating? What’s love got to do with it? How do you ensure that you are learning just as much as anyone else? In this class, you’ll explore how you can tell the truth (always), ensure the clarity of your teaching, and use improv so that your classes flow. And most importantly, you can embody the four points of the compass of self care. If you’re not having fun, stop and recover!
