  • Uncover the questions which will be your key to creativity.
  • Practice designing more generative and bolder brainstorming.
  • Discover how to choose your team’s most resonant solutions.

Your workshop includes:

  • Practice with more than 12 new-to-you modalities
  • Detailed workbook with how-to instructions
  • Introduction to our favorite facilitation tool, the WoMBAT
  • Peer networking, lunch, and a great view of the Capitol

Is this really for me?

You should join the fun if you are:

  • A seasoned facilitator looking for some new spice in your repertoire
  • A team- or project-lead that wants to coax new and useful thinking from your peers
  • Still reading this note!

What are people saying about them?

The one word that comes to mind is Wow! The day was action-packed with experiential learning of facilitation modalities.

Rae’s wisdom, energy, warmth, and joy helped to create the space for deep learning, vulnerability, and creativity. I walked away with so many new ideas and although I have been facilitating for over 25 years, I have a whole new set of tools and exercises to add to my toolkit!

-Ilona Birenbaum, Founding Principal, The Wynhurst Group, LLC

I signed up to take a course with Jacob, expecting to have some fun and see cool things. I left with several tools that I immediately put to use and many resources for additional tools! Jacob is generous with his skills and resources, and skilled in his ability to teach and be creative in his methods.

-Emily Freije, Sands Capital Management
