Want a more hands-on, immersive learning to be a better leader?
We offer in-person workshops and manager trainings based on data from 15,000+ people and years of research, personally run by our CEO Claire Lew. Our workshops are the perfect complement to using our software – or are excellent on their own, for a leadership retreat.

You accelerate your results when you practice. Our workshops do just that, so you improve and see outcomes more quickly.

Most attendees said it was the best training they've ever attended in their professional career and all felt it was super actionable.

Our most popular workshop: The Feedback Loop

We customize our training based on your needs – but here's an example of our most popular workshop, "The Feedback Loop":

Giving, receiving, asking for, and acting on feedback well are some of the most-valued – yet difficult to master – skills for any manager. After years of research across hundreds of companies in 25+ countries, our CEO Claire Lew shares the playbook for how the most effective managers create a culture of feedback within their teams.

Here's what you'll learn:

  • Why leaders are constantly the last to know things in their company
  • The top leadership blindspots are and how you can avoid them
  • How to uncover your own leadership blindspots
  • How to get honest feedback, especially from your most introverted employees
  • The best questions to be asking every single employee in your company
  • How to hold an effective one-on-one with an employee
  • How to receive feedback without getting defensive
  • What to do with feedback you disagree with
  • How to tell what feedback to act on
  • What to do with feedback once you receive it
  • How to break bad news to your team
  • How to give employee feedback without damaging morale
  • The components of building an open, honest company culture

You’ll walk away with techniques, best practices, and a toolset you can put into practice immediately.

This was the most concrete and useful workshop I have ever attended.

As a co-founder, I found this workshop to be so useful that I asked Claire to do one just for our management team. It was a big success.
