You can now be trained and coached remotely by Chris!
I am running one hour sessions by Skype, and it works really well for small groups, say up to about five people.
It’s just like I’m in the room, but you don’t have to travel, and neither do I, so you save time and money.
You sit around the table in your meeting room with me on your big TV screen, and we chat. I draw things at my end and explain, and ask you about your issues, just like a training course.
If you wanted to run it for 20 people I can do that too – I can’t hear everyone and answer everyone’s questions with larger groups, but I can certainly explain the subject and answer questions, it’s more of a “talk” than a workshop/coaching but that’s fine – and of course then the price becomes a ridiculous bargain for you!
I find that one hour chunks work best. Although if you want a two or three hour session we can just run them one after the other, with a coffee break at some point. So you could have 10-11 and 11.15 to 12.15, for example.
