Training & Facilitation



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


Coaching For Managers

Coaching cultures are popular right now, and for good reason: companies with a coaching approach have higher performance and engagement. In this workshop, we take an experimental approach to introduce participants to what coaching is and how coaches think. They then get a chance to try out a few practical coaching tools that they can adapt to their leadership style right away.

How To Engage, Retain, and Develop High Performers

Leaders spend far more energy trying to help struggling performers than lifting up high performers. This leaves star employees feeling under- appreciated and without a path forward. It’s no wonder they’re always on their way out! In this workshop, participants will learn the unique ways to keep their high performers at their best, and will design a custom development plan for their most valuable team members.  


Focus & Productivity 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.
