The Apprenticeship™

The Apprenticeship™ is a HIGHLY interactive 2-day experience that helps today’s coaches, leaders and educators become more skilled and adaptable communicators.

What Sets The Apprenticeship™ Apart?

Communication is the foundation of true leadership!

Our Apprenticeship™ workshops are for leaders, coaches, educators and business owners from every vocation who have a desire to get the most out of those they lead, while also bring more value to those they serve.

It is for those who have a genuine interest in the “human element” that underpins nearly every vocation, and every interaction we have with those around us.

Research proves that more adaptable communicators are able to get more effort, engagement, consistency, and attention to detail out of those they work with on a daily basis. With this, comes not just better outcomes, but also better relationships.

Communication is a skill. One that is necessary for learning and leadership to take place in any capacity. Yet the vast majority of us receive little to no formal training on it whatsoever. This omission leads to the development of significant blind-spots in both our personal and professional development as we struggle to relate to others, resolve conflicts and adapt to chaotic circumstances.

Whether your goal is to become more effective at building buy-in with those you lead, improving your ability to adapt on the fly, making critical decisions under uncertainty, or simply improving your own self-awareness, these two days will help you extract strategies that you can actually put to use to solve these problems and more.

To be clear, The Apprenticeship™ is not another “certification” that promises you will become an expert in just two days by learning about a new tool, system, or technology. It’s an immersive experience based upon interactive learning, and a rare opportunity to connect with fellow difference-makers from around the world.

To date, we have welcomed leaders of all ages from over 30 professions and 22 countries including Australia, Mexico, Canada, Ireland, Japan, Brazil, Africa, China, India, Norway, and Poland. It is this level of diversity that allows attendees to gain valuable feedback based upon a wider variety of peer perspectives.

Each day features individualized social skill-based evaluations, role-playing under constraints, case studies, and video breakdowns which allow you to pinpoint the precise areas where you can improve most from a communication, buy-in, and conflict resolution standpoint.

Great leaders and communicators are not born, they are made. They set themselves apart by committing to improving the two critical skills any human-being requires if they want to become more successful in both their personal and professional lives; the ability to connect and the ability to adapt.

Join us on our mission to become and create better communicators worldwide.

True leaders crave guidance, not gimmicks!

Helping you become a more adaptable communicator over the long-term is our priority.

While others claim to solve all of your problems by offering an “inspirational” overpriced weekend seminar, The Apprenticeship™ is focused on immediate actionable learning.

Our facilitators are not gurus, they are guides. Leaders and communicators who, like you, are relentlessly focused upon improving the way they lead and influence others.

Becoming a more effective leader and communicator takes a combination of skin-in-the game, deep reflection and strategic interventions that are all focused upon how we can enhance our ability to understand and interact with others.

The Apprenticeship™ examines the role that communication, humanbehavior, and social psychology play out in the complex world of helping others.

It is only through this improved understanding of the interconnectedness between “the art” and “the science” of effective communication, that we can transform our message into something bigger than ourselves.

To improve in this capacity is the responsibility of every leader. To leave no stone unturned by continually taking a beginner’s view, and to be held accountable to examining our foundation for the entirety of our careers.

“No skill will separate a coach, or any other professional, more so than the ability to communicate more effectively.” – Brett Bartholomew
