Small Groups allow for transformative learning experiences!

Small Group Skill Building Sessions

Throughout our programs we utilize a range of experiential learning techniques drawn from the disciplines of theater, visual arts, martial arts and mindfulness practices. We are highly skilled at creating safe, no-fault environments for learning, experimenting and improving. Participants are asked to try on a variety of skills, attitudes and behaviors that help develop Poise, Presence, and Influence Skills. Each exercise is debriefed making clear application to current business situations and work-related interactions.

Executive Poise, Presence and Influence


“I recently attended Rob’s 2-day workshop and I got so much more out of it than I had even expected. It was such an amazing experience. More than just gaining tools and techniques, his workshop initiated a much needed moment of self-reflection. For the first time in many years, I started to really reflect on what was most important and what I needed to work on to become the person I wanted to  be. – Susan Hsiong, Director, Research & Innovation
