DAY ONE | 3-Fold Focus 

The Employer's Perspective. A powerful dose of the employer's perspective is woven throughout the series, so we spend time seeing things and speak from that vital vantage point.

 The Series. We explore key concepts and exercises in each module so you get familiar, get your questions answered, and can get started.

 Accelerated Teaching Techniques. The series promotes interaction, relevance, and real-life application so learners get it, personalize it, and apply it. We sharpen the skills of great facilitators and increase the capacity and confidence of new facilitators.

DAY TWO | Presentation Learning Lab & Wrap-Up

Presentations. Each attendee presents a portion of the curriculum for 10 minutes to demonstrate their knowledge of the series, the employer's perspective, and the accelerated teaching techniques taught on day one. Everyone learns as we all give and receive feedback. And, it's fun!

Final Q&A. We field remaining questions and introduce the WPE Community of Support.
