Workshops

Mark offers seven Natural Strategy workshops – three for individuals, three for collectives, and one for both – each providing training in the Natural Strategy method and detailed guidance on its application within the workshop’s area of focus.

All of Mark’s workshops are insight and action-oriented, and aimed at unlocking new natural progress in our lives or groups. The workshops include in-depth overviews of the Natural Strategy method, exploration of relevant self-assessment tools and strategy techniques, personal or group analysis of available progressive opportunities, and guided development of an initial Natural Strategy plan for each individual participant or group.

In practice, this workshop format provides an essential balance between adequate structure and flexibility, creates a supportive and yet challenging or progressive learning environment, provides essential skill development, and equips each participant to use the Natural Strategy method on their own or with others, both within the workshop’s scope and more broadly.

Below are summaries of Mark’s seven Natural Strategy workshops, as well as information on workshop scheduling:
