This week I took the opportunity to answer a question I received in response to one of my weekly emails.
Jason, who works in financial services, had a tough time at a workshop he ran recently. One of his participants was uninterested in participating in the activity Jason was running.
Their negative energy brought everyone in the group down. It was a total bummer!
So Jason responded to my email with this question:
“How do you make sure that those who want to participate in a workshop don’t get bummed out by a hater?”
It’s a great question, and something we deal with all the time at gravitytank.
In this video, you’ll hear some workshop horror stories from my colleagues.
I share three actionable strategies to prepare for, and manage challenging participants in a workshop setting. They’ll help you run successful workshops.
