Start Moving Forward

When the COVID pandemic hit, businesses were forced to change how they worked almost overnight. Even those industries that have had a surge in activity (think toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and virtual meeting platforms) have had to adjust to meet the new demand.

We aren’t sure how much longer the uncertainty we face will last, but we do know that people, teams, and organizations must find a way to move forward. To help you address and overcome a specific challenge that you are facing, we designed a workshop solution that we are calling Transformation Takeout. Just like the restaurant industry shifted from dine-in to takeout, we are providing a solution that will allow students to walk away with a custom, tangible solution that can be implemented immediately.

While we believe that workshops cannot replace training, we also understand that dollars are expected to go farther than before. This budget-conscious solution can help bridge a gap that is keeping you from fully adapting to our new business reality.

Takeout Framework

While our workshops are designed to be flexible in nature, the following framework provides a guideline for how each Transformation Takeout session will flow. Takeout sessions will take place over the course of 4 hours to 2 days, depending on the topic selected. 

Content Introduction

Learning to level-set basic knowledge needed during the session.


Current State Discussion

Identify the AS IS state and validate challenges to be addressed during the co-creation section.


Co-Creation Workshop

Work through challenges with one of our experts to co-create a custom solution for your team.


Action Plan

Determine, as a team, a plan for how the “Takeout” will be implemented.


Duration for each section of the workshop will vary depending on topic and team needs.*
