Workshops

Let’s collaborate on creating experiential training and workshops to suit your interests and needs. The interesting, relevant processes will motivate participants to take action benefitting themselves, their colleagues, and the organization. As appropriate, some viable preparation and follow up will be supported by Ruth’s handbooks and materials.

Groups optimally include 6 to 20 participants. Costs and arrangements are determined by preparation, design, and length of services. The size of the group, materials, and setting, are other considerations.

We’ll discuss your goals and plan your group’s next event when you contact me at 202.659.1772 or ruth@ruthschimel.com.

Ruth is ready now to speak and provide workshops and other opportunities for development related to how to prepare for the future of work.
