Do you ever find yourself intrigued by a new technology but not willing to carve out the time to learn it? Maybe you know people that constantly talk about how they “plan” to take the time to better understand Facebook, or Twitter, or Pinterest or whatever it is but never end up doing so.
Well in a recent post on the business coaching blog for BVN, a purpose-driven professional training and coaching network, ChesCoIM member Ryan Gerardi points out that this is restrictive thinking that could even be a cop out for people to not progress.
Later this month, Gerardi will be doing something about that.
On Monday June 18 Ryan is conducting a dynamic and interactive workshop for the Business Vision Network (BVN) designed to get people over the hump of their self-induced roadblocks to using great technology. Beginning at 7:30am Ryan will facilitate an hour-and-a-half Build Your Business workshop with fellow BVN members and guests on the purpose and use of technology in today’s mobile and social environments.
But this won’t be your ordinary lecture-style workshop with a Power Point and audience questions. The interactive workshop is meant to help each member solve a specific business problem that interests them most. Maybe that’s Twitter, maybe that’s LinkedIn, whatever it is this workshop is meant to give you a chance to learn something new about a tool you have been putting off for too long.
As stated by Gerardi himself, “My goal is to go out onto a ledge for each and every person that attends. If you want to experience a whole new kind of workshop, come and see us on June 18.” The more people that attend then the more challenging it will be, but all the more fun too.
