Training & Facilitation



We deliver high-energy, hands-on workshops that shift perspective and turn employees into clearer thinkers and more confident communicators.


Instilling A Coaching Culture

Coaching cultures are popular right now, and for good reason. They drive performance and engagement.  We begin with the foundations of coaching and an introduction to a quick and effective coaching tool. Then we’ll run an exercise to practice that tool before concluding with a workshop on instilling a coaching culture on participants' teams.

Intrapreneurship 101

Employees perform better when they feel a sense of ownership and contribution in their job. In this condensed version of a series originally developed for the 4A’s, we kick-start employees’ creative spark by showing how to ‘act like owners’ at their agency benefits everyone - themselves, their team, department, agency, and client level. 


Caveday Consulting

Caveday is a method for getting creative workers to avoid procrastination and get a state of flow. We begin by introducing what Caveday is, the approach, and what to expect when working 'in the Cave.' Then we jump into a guided Sprint, followed by a discussion of how to incorporate this into our daily work and lives.

Austin is amazing - a natural and such a fantastic facilitator. The group was so excited about the exercise and the work we did with Simple Progress kept coming up later in the evening and all thru the next day.

His style is not in your face or abrasive, it’s a gentle style. We achieved a ton and had a heap of dialogue. Austin was there and guiding us, but we never felt too guided.  Austin was the leader, but we never felt like we lacked control.
