"Tell me what distinguishes your training program from others?"
I, Inc.© is a series of virtually live presentations on the strategy and creativity needed to build an ONLINE BIZ*.
*(A 'Brand Identity Zone' in cyberspace)
"I, Inc.©" is a highly stimulating learning agenda based on the best practices of successful artists, entrepreneurs and self-employed profe$$ionals, presented in an innovative format. It helps participants shift perception into understanding the potential revealed by digital thinking.
Your BIZ* (*brand identity zone) defines your stake in cyberspace. It describes what others need to know in order to do business with you - over the Internet.
This mentorship program is for persons involved in the digital economy. It's for Artists and Entrepreneurs, Professionals and Self-Employed workers everywhere... It's for CEO'S, project managers and creative teams involved in communicating a reason for being or in selling solutions. It's for the management team, the marketing and sales teams, the design and customer service teams and other significant collaborators. It is for your business network and everyone in your supply chain.
The curriculum is shared in 3 parts: 1. Opening exploration of the potential; 2. [7 x 1.5 hour] an Interactive Audio-Learning seminars; 3. a Closing event and synthesis call to action. Over time, participants learn everything they need to know about the motivation, the strategy, the creativity and the resources required to succeed commercially in the digital economy. Using Tele-conference calling, the Internet and heuristics, the program will help you discover the three kinds of capital every BIZ* must develop in order to prosper.
Your guide is Lawrence Poole. He is pictured above ...and his BIZ* is storytelling.
He and his partner Suzy Ethier have prospered from it for more than 18 years.
Tell me more about the mentorship!
Mentorship recalls the trusted sage Mentor giving advice to young Telemachus in Homer's Odyssey.
The French coined the term to mean the transfer of information from any experienced person to others.
To do so, the mentorship program is divided into 3-parts:
Part 1. The Kickoff: This consists of a 4-hour heuristic learning event called "A Power Lunch At The Explorer's Club". Heuristic learning involves "self-discovery" so before our mentor starts giving advice, he'll establish a real physical/emotional contact with the participants.
It's important to define terms and look at potential. We'll get a feel for limits and expectations. The contact will allow us to discover the particular considerations that make the "mentoring aspect" of our training offer valid. Then the disembodied voices that dispense the Audio-Learning via conference-call know who we are talking to.
"A Power Lunch At The Explorer's Club" is delivered in an appropriate location or catered in-house. We introduce a "springboard story" that explains self-empowerment and the keys to success in a commercial context, we'll get the feel for heuristic training and for each other, and then we'll take a look at BIZ* and the changing face of the marketplace.
Part 2. 7 x 90 minute Audio-Learning seminars: Over the following weeks and months, because the heuristic learning used strong imagery and interactive animation, it created a positive expectation for the training, and that emotional capital allows the mentorship to occur via Audio-Learning.
The format uses both the Internet and telephone conference-calling to follow you, wherever you may be. We will set up a learning agenda that divides 10-12 hours of seminar presentation into 7 sessions. Each of these sessions has its own learning agenda, its own timetable and its own didactic material. At an appointed time, with plenty of reminders, we log onto the same phone number. It'll be the entry code into a highly stimulating and empowering ninety minutes and the best part of that day.
Part 3. The «Agora» At The Explorer's Club - The program closes with another 4-hour in-house heuristic learning event this time an interactive animation revisits the whole program. We'll recall - and give whole synthesis - to the content during an Agora, where we'll answer questions, correct misconceptions and add to your meaning of "creative leadership" in troubled times. And then we'll explore greater potential.
Okay... give me the FAQs!
12 facts to consider when choosing a distance learning experience!
Unlike our heuristic training events where we actually meet, the 7 Audio-Learning seminars require no physical presence and no travel by anyone. For those 7 x 90+ minute sessions, all you need is a place where you can use a touchtone telephone with speaker-phone attachment if others are joining you, and access to the Internet for a couple of hours.
You'll also require a PC with a logon to the session's URL and the hardcopy material (and projector if you're managing a group, so you can display the accompanying slides and web links to everyone). We'll supply you with phone number to call and login and the training takes place right where you are sitting, even on a beach or the jungle - if your using a cell phone. Wherever, you will have our training material set out in front of you and our expertise transmitted live, at an Audio-Learning seminar.
A complete training agenda - including opening event, 7 Audio-Learning sessions and closing event &endash; is decided with each client. Typically, a program is delivered over 2-12 months&endash; with sessions delivered from about once a week, to about once a month. Many companies incorporate the sessions with the regular sales meeting or as a team-building event. For many, it's a chance to mirror their own situation with a mentor who sees their great potential, for others it's a chance to learn the basics or an inspiring refresher.
The cost of this complete package &endash; 2 heuristic events and 7 Audio-Learning sessions &endash; depends on the number of participants and the locations that are connected to the Audio-Learning broadcast. After we discus your exact needs, we'll give you an exact quote. Even so - you can be sure that, if this program was available elsewhere, because of our unique formula &endash; it will cost you a lot less than any other way of delivering this empowering agenda by a seasoned pro.
The total Training fee covers the animation of the opening and closing events by experts, the 7 Audio-Learning animation and the phone connections, plus the didactic material, including URL links, PowerPoint slides, PDF documents, QuickTime movies, the book SELF-Empowerment, etc.. In addition, you receive an audio-transcript of each session and some sessions include a complimentary ebook.
You may have as many people join you at your Explorer Club events or at your Audio-Learning sessions as you wish. After we've quoted you for a specific number of participants, there are no additional charges - but your guests must gather together to listen from your phone speaker, or you must have the ability to otherwise distribute our call internally and broadcast our URL connection.
Except where standard and special copyright restrictions are noted, you can share the promotional material, the PowerPoint presentations or notes, etc, with everyone who participates, and share the Audio-Learning tapes or CDs with anyone afterwards too.
Our fee will cover all the phone lines we decide on. Later, if more people want to join us, you will be charged an additional fee for each phone connection, even if within the same facility. From a boardroom to an auditorium - you may allow as many people as can gather around the agreed phone numbers via speakers and projectors to participate.
A tape or CD will be available after each Audio-Learning session FREE and you may share it with persons who missed the session.
Our Audio-Learning sessions are delivered live via the telephone to an in-house audience. Sessions are about 90-minutes long and may include references to online URL and use Adobe© PDFs and/or PowerPoint© presentation and/or QuickTime© audio or videos. Also some sessions may have an interactive Q&A period in various formats and "homework" assignments.
Some interaction can take place during the Audio-Learning sessions and participants may ask questions of the mentor at the end of each session, in real-time. This means you'll need to be connected to the Internet, a web browser, Acrobat and PowerPoint readers and a QuickTime viewer.
These are standard with most PCs and can be downloaded for FREE from the manufacturers.
Also, we'll set up and maintain an electronic bulletin board where the participants from a wide geographic area can log on and trade information in real time. Unless otherwise noted, participants will be sent a copy of the appropriate URLs and the PDFs, PowerPoint presentations, QuickTime movies or other material in advance of each session via email.
You are expected to copy and distribute these documents to everyone participating, at each site.
Once we've agreed on dates, you'll receive a series of emails from us; they will include, but are not limited to:
Promo reminders for participants;
Session curricula, Audio-Learning agenda, URL, PDFs, PowerPoint presentation, or more;
Call-in instructions, including dial-in #s and event code (if necessary) - will come 1-7 days prior to the session;
We'll email you the session dial-in number along with the session web site URL at least one (1) day before EACH Audio-Learning session. If the session is broadcast on a Monday AM, for example, you'd receive your email the previous Friday, or sooner.
