My proposed class/workshop is called Crucial Conversations for the Startup Founder. In my experience, I've seen too many startups fail, not because their idea was bad, but because their team imploded. Furthermore, startup founders become founders often because they are great at product or great performers, not necessarily because they know how to lead and manage others. As a result, when they need to have a crucial conversation (such as disagreeing with a cofounder, needing to improve an underperforming employee, or answering a customer complaint), they either avoid it or botch it, leading to misaligned expectations, poor decisions, and/or lack of accountability for follow-up performance.
My proposed workshop is geared towards helping startup founders gain the skills and confidence needed to have those crucial conversations and build honest and productive relationships.
I have experience coaching people individually as well as leading and teaching in general. I'm located in NYC.
@Justin, thanks for the recommendation. I'd like to follow up off-line to talk more about what your experience was like, how you pitched your workshop, and what recommendations you have for making your workshop valuable for the participants.
@Jean, thank you for the tip, I'll check out SkillShare.
@Ryan, I haven't tried meetup.com, yet. I'll go ahead and contact organizers of meet-ups that fit. If you know any, I would welcome an introduction!
