AJ&Smart Advanced Facilitation Training at Google (Invitation Only)

July 27, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm

In collaboration with Google, AJ&Smart is teaching an exclusive Advanced Facilitation workshop, and you’re invited!

Originally imagined as an advanced training day for Google’s certified Design Sprint Masters, Google has allowed us to open up a couple of spots for researchers, UX designers, product managers and other practitioners that want to run better workshops and meetings. 
AJ&Smart will be teaching deceptively simple facilitation secrets to run smoother workshops, structure and shortcut discussions, deal with troublemakers, as well as to facilitate with authority and confidence.
This is not a public event, but Google have generously offered to open up ten seats to our own special guests. So, if you’re reading this, you must be special 🙂
Attendees do not necessarily need to be experts in the Design Sprint, but must have a good level of general workshop facilitation experience.
This is not Design Sprint Training. You will not learn about Design Sprints in this workshop.

What you’ll learn

Hacks to cut through circular discussion and make facilitation less stressful
Simple secrets to running smoother workshops
Removing ambiguity from instructions
Dealing with difficult people
Answering difficult questions
Comanding authority and confidence
Using reflection moments

You’ll also learn a new type of workshop – almost a mini version of the Design Sprint – called the Lightning Decision Jam.
