FAQ

Who’s this for?

Actionable Workshops are for busy leaders who give a damn. About their people, about what they do, and about making work a more meaningful experience.

How does it work?

We give you everything you need to lead 60-minute discussions with your team. This is about exploring a concept from a leading business book, working through how it applies to your business and then putting it into practice.

What sort of supplies do I need?

Not much. Almost all 42 workshops can be run with nothing more than a flip chart and markers. We’ll provide everything else you need, including Leader Notes, a training video for you, and a 2 page pre-read article for your team members.

How much does it cost?

You can access three of our most popular workshops for free. No catch. If you want access to the rest of the workshops, help finding the right content, and tools for making the learning more applicable, a Premium account starts at just $950/quarter.
