About This Event
If you are someone who values deep learning, the acquisition and evaluation of new skills you will actually use, as well as finding out what makes those around you tick, then we invite you to join us for our highly interactive Apprenticeship™ 2-day live event!
The Art of Coaching Apprenticeship™ is research backed, and is the first event of its kind to truly bridge the gap between skilled interpersonal communication and leadership development across domains.
Collectively, our programs 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.
Simply put, if you work with people in any capacity, The Apprenticeship™ is for you!
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 as a leader, these two days will help you extract strategies that you can actually put to use.
The vast majority of our attendees seek us out specifically because they have had enough of the traditional “death-by-PowerPoint” seminars that are rife with vague self-help sound bites, trust falls, overcrowded conference rooms, shouting gurus, and topics that ignore the chaotic realities of true leadership.
- Navigating Power Dynamics & Politics
- Building Buy-In Across Varying Generations
- The Role of Perception in Leadership
- The Skilled and Ethical Use of Influence in Leadership
- 7 Critical Elements of Interpersonal Communication
- Strategies for Making Better Decisions While Under Duress
- The Truth Regarding Self-Awareness and Reflection
- Conflict Resolution in the New Age
- Creating Assessments and Evaluations For Yourself and Your Team
This is done through a strategic mixture of case study reviews, role playing break-outs, self and peer evaluations, film break-downs, group discussions and more.
The truth is that every leader needs a safe place to rehearse and refine their strategies for some of life’s biggest moments-The Apprenticeship™ is that place.
We look forward to seeing you!

Regardless of CEU allocation, we strongly recommend you do NOT sign-up if that is your primary purpose of doing so.

Any CEU’s should just be considered a bonus.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER PRE-REQUISITES FOR ATTENDING THE APPRENTICESHIP™?
Yes. Attendees will be required to sign a waiver for participation, and will also be required to answer a few quick questions so that the material can be better customized to enhance your experience at the event. We also require those attending to keep an open mind and to ensure that you enter the two days ready to engage, laugh, learn and be receptive to any and all feedback. Titles, awards or years of experience do not exempt any of us from being open to improvement, especially in the area of communication.
DO I NEED TO HAVE READ BRETT'S BOOK OR HAVE TAKEN HIS ONLINE COURSES TO UNDERSTAND THIS MATERIAL?
While prior familiarity with Brett’s numerous resources certainly does help, we do not mandate that each participant has read the book or taken the courses. Please note, however, that previous material will not be covered in these two days as The Apprenticeship™ is a continuation of topics covered within Brett’s foundational resources.

The Apprenticeship™ is a two-day experience that goes from 8-5:45PM

WHAT IS THE APPRENTICESHIP™
Put simply, the Art of Coaching Apprenticeship™ is a highly interactive 2-day live event that is focused on social skill development in today’s coaches and leaders, as well as the science behind what constitutes more effective leadership in chaotic environments. It is the first true resource of its kind and blends research-backed presentations, small group discussion, case studies, live evaluations, breakout sessions, and personalized video breakdowns. Oh, and a bit of laughter as well given that we do try and have a bit of fun amongst the two days.
