Because in a workshop, you can connect, that ’ s, and link is in the center of the market we are living in now. Link means finding the others. Peer support, giving more than you get, engaging with other men and women and with ideas. Link is part of the process of expansion. Connecting with possibility, with shift and with the generosity of new ideas and strategies.

Every one of them is specific. They use Akimbo’s discussion platform to create large scale communities. They’re there to allow you to find the others.

Classes, off or online, are all linear. They re based on an immediate relation between the teacher ’s articles and the student’s attention. Write this down, incorporate this, understand that.
We re this week launching two workshops. If that ’ s the direction you ’ re led, one May Be a good fit for you:

Conventional courses scale in a given way. They scale better if the instructor looks on video.
At the most recent session of one of our conventions, a typical day saw students interacting with each other every three minutes, 7,000 times each day. In a typical course, that number will be zero.

I’ve been a teacher my whole career, along with the workshops we’re running today are the most effective way I’ve discovered to assist people level up.

Workshops are distinct. Workshops are all about the cohort. Another students. The people you meet, the men and women the people that you and also that you learn from teach. Workshops involve work, maybe not the compliance inherent in testing and certification.

And workshops are the future of learning.

The Bootstrapper’s Workshop (a deeper dive into building a company without outside funding).
The Freelancer’s Workshop (a short sprint toward discovering better clients).

It’s difficult to run workshops at scale in the real world. The physics of interaction make it awkward. But it ends up that a workshop, online is a way.
Four times per year, we conduct the altMBA, our elite flagship, a workshop that’s quite different from others. It has curated small groups, video conferencing, hands on alumni coaches and concentrated. It’s designed to assist you see more clearly, decide most of all and effectively, transform into the leader of becoming, you.

A course can be quite effective. Students get a ton of actionable insights out of the highly-rated video courses I provide at Udemy. But a course can’t possibly provide a workshop’s magic.

[additionally, another new riff on this from me on Medium]

Have a workshop if you want to learn how to build a boat.
