Virtual Train the Trainer Course
Hello facilitator friends!
New News!  First, some not so fun news… I have decided to cancel my in-person Experiential Facilitation 101 course next week.  It was a hard decision, but feel it was the right one.  But wait, some good news!  I am, however, still going to host a Virtual Train the Trainer Course.  So if you are interested in being certified to teach this class to others and are OK with a virtual training, register here.  If you have questions just reply to this email and I’ll send you some more information.  
Book Update:  I mentioned in last week’s newsletter that I was doing a writer’s retreat with my co-authors Trevor Dunlap and Matthew Broda for our new book, Team Building From the Toy Aisle. Holy Moley did we have a BLAST!  And we created so many new activities.   Seriously…  a crazy amount of new stuff.  We have re-engineered some classic games into new, fresh activities that are bound to breathe some new life into your programs.  I can’t wait to share it with you when it comes out!  Stay tuned!
New Online Course!  At my other company, Personify Leadership, my business-partner Angela Sebaly and I have been working on a new online course called The Courageous Leader:  Resilience in Tough Times.  A timely topic!  Angela is the author of the amazing book, The Courageous Leader, and we have been busy developing this self-paced Online Course behind the scenes.  We are excited to share it with you!  If you read this newsletter early enough on Wendesday, you can still make it to our free demo of this course!  It’s today, July 1, 2020 at 11:00am ET / 9:00am MT.  Register here!  We will be launching the online program on July 7, so this will be your chance for a sneak peek at some of the internal elements of this course.  And just like all of our programs at Personify, it will be an experiential-based program, even in the virtual format!  Once we launch, the course will retail for $298 per person.  We will discount this to $248 to the first 100 people that sign up.  Look for those details in an upcoming newsletter once the course is live.

New Podcast Episode!  Chris Cavert and I have been having a blast recording new episodes of our podcast called ‘Ask Michelle & Chris About Team Building‘  We have our 8th episode ready for download, and this week we tackle the question, “Can you go more indepth about the Open to Outcome five question model for processing and debriefing?”  We’re live on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcast, Spotify & Stitcher.  You can listen to, download and access the show notes to all available episodes at this link.  You can also find and subscribe to the podcast on your favorite podcast player – just search, ‘Ask Michelle & Chris’. And, please Rate and Review the podcast if you are using the Apple Podcasts player. Help us become the first result when people search for ‘team building’ podcasts. Thank you so much! Best wishes to you and your loved ones to be healthy, safe and to be virtually connected.  

Have fun out there,
