BOOK CLIFF LIVE! Cliff Michaels has been conducting high-impact workshops and retreats over 20 years. No hype. No woo-woo. No magic pill. Just highly-connected tools & essentials for life, careers, and entrepreneurs based on real-world experiences. FUN. FAST. RESULTS. GUARANTEED.

WHERE SHOULD I START? SELF & TEAM DISCOVERY with GOAL & PROJECT PLANNING are highly-recommended to establish mission, vision, values, action & accountability. FORUM TRAINING builds upon discovery with greater structure, protocols, and tools for Boards, Forums, Committees, Support Groups, and Start-Ups. In 2016, Cliff combined a number of these workshops for TEDxLA Imagine Week and produced IMAGINEERING IDEAS INTO ACTION (the combination of Cliff’s best-rated courses and tools.

WHAT’S A FORUM? A Forum (often 3-15 members) is a highly confidential, peer-to-peer meeting, with ground rules based on Gestalt Theory (the whole is more than the sum of its parts). A Forum usually meets monthly to share and learn collective life and business experiences with members presenting issues supported by a forum-member coach who helps prepare the topic. A facilitated forum adds tools, best practices, and an experienced third-party moderator-facilitator (such as Cliff Michaels) who can teach, help resolve issues, and take the Forum to new heights.

WHO BENEFITS? Cliff’s Training, Facilitation, and Workshops are ideal for Forums, Boards, Support Groups, Committees, Students, Teachers, Classrooms, Start-Up Teams, Creative Artists, and Young Entrepreneurs.

HOW LONG? Cliff’s Live Training & Facilitation can be done with a half-day, full-day, or multi-day retreat, customized to your needs. From boardrooms to once-in-a-lifetime virtual experiences, let us know how we can serve you best.
