How to Promote Your Cohort and the Empathy Training?
Here are ways you can help keep the Cohort growing and keep increasing your skills.
1. Take the Training Again, and Again and Again...
We want to give preference to participants already in the Cohort Series and their personal friends that they invite to take part in the next Cohort. If you would like to continue with the series, sign up as soon as possible. Once the spaces are taken, the Cohort is locked.
What role do you want to take in the next cohort? Your training in Module 1 is not completed until you can train others and produce trainings.
( ) Participant - Step 1 is to start as a participant learning to be an Empathy Circle Facilitator.
( ) Trainee - Step 2, become a trainee to learn how to be a trainer.
( ) Floater (multiple roles) fills in if people don’t show up, etc.
( ) Trainer - Train participants and trainees.
( ) Producer Trainee - learn how to setup and and host training Cohorts.
( ) Producer - responsible for setting up and organizing training Cohorts.
( ) Designer - Create and expand on the training curriculum. Design new training Modules.
2. Personally Invite Your Friends
Personally share with your friends how much you enjoyed and learned from taking the training. Invite them to take part.
Send them an email with the signup information.
3. Promote to Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
Each Cohort Series has both a Facebook and LinkedIn Event about it.
