facilitator training program – Dec 2019

This is just a brief posting regarding the next Life Design Catalyst Coach-Guide Facilitator Training.

– – – – –

As an educator, how are you showing up for your students? And how are you preparing them for an unpredictable future?

Let’s start with a list of statements that may best describe your work situation:

  • I need to find ways to integrate academic/success coaching for my job and/or in my unit.
  • I want to find purpose and meaning for my life and/or for the lives of my students.
  • I don’t know how to motivate my students.
  • I’ve been charged with finding ways to increase retention and graduation rates.
  • I need to figure out how I can help more students with less resources.

If at least one of these statements resonates with you, then the Life Design Catalyst Facilitator Training is DEFINITELY for you!
