Live Training & Facilitation

WHY LEARN WITH CLIFF > As a serial entrepreneur known for his humor and down-to-earth style, Cliff Michaels brings 25+ years of high-impact solutions to every training. No hype. No magic pill. Just real-world tools & essentials for life, careers, and entrepreneurs. From 1995-2004, Cliff also served as President, Education, and Forum Chair for the Young Entrepreneurs’ Organization in L.A (today EO has 15,000+ members, 120+ chapters, 60+ countries). In 2004, Cliff designed the EO L.A Forum-Training Handbook and mentored thousands of students using these same principles. In 2021, Cliff will launch EasyTeach Global Solutions to provide FREE education & entrepreneurial lessons to students and schools in need.

WHERE SHOULD LEARNERS START? Cliff’s signature courses include SELF & TEAM DISCOVERY, GOAL & PROJECT PLANNING, and FORUM TRAINING. Combined, these courses establish mission, vision, values, action & accountability, and most importantly, structure, protocols, and tools for Individuals Teams, Boards, Forums, and Start-Ups. See descriptions below…

WHAT’S A FORUM? A Forum (often 6-15 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 structured Forum often meets monthly to share and learn collective life and business experiences with members presenting issues supported by a member-coach who helps prepare the topic. A facilitated forum adds tools, best practices, and an experienced third-party facilitator (such as Cliff Michaels) who can help resolve issues and take the Forum to new heights.

WHO BENEFITS? Cliff’s E-Courses, Live Training, and Custom Workshops are ideal for Forums, Boards, Committees, Students, Teachers, Start-Up Teams, Creative Artists, and Entrepreneurs.

WHERE & HOW LONG? Training & Facilitation can be done with Zoom meetings, half-day, full-day, or multi-day in-person retreats, customized to your needs. From boardrooms to once-in-a-lifetime experiences, Cliff and his network of world-class  trainers & facilitators can be booked anywhere in the world.
