Adults learn best when they feel sense of “self-direction” for their own learning. Adults must have opportunities within a workshop for critical reflection. As adults we must be able to align their experiences with new learning to “make it stick.” Oh! It doesn’t hurt to have some fun, too.

For this reason, Kimberle works with your team to clearly understand the specific needs and issues to be addressed and the desired outcomes. Once we have agreed on the right approach, every workshop is tailored to achieve your desires outcomes and fit your budget. Experiential activities, actionable tools and methods are customized to respect the adult learning styles of your team and reinforce learning.

Kimberle is passionate about all things entrepreneurship. She can deliver on a wide variety of business topics including basic business skills, feasibility, strategic business planning, women’s business ownership and designing lifestyle businesses.

Based on her book, Determined: Living a life with No Excuses. No Limits. No Regrets. the DETERMINATION EQUATION™ workshop is inspiring, but doesn’t stop there. From 26 years of personal, business and professional coaching experience, Kimberle has learned that the difference between those who realize their dreams and those on the “someday” plan is ACTION. It’s easy enough to say, but more complex than just doing “something.” In this workshop, participants will learn to use the DETERMINATION EQUATION™ to create sustained MOMENTUM and realize their dreams. Each person will create their personal strategy that goes far beyond a traditional business plan or business model canvas using five easy to remember A’s. Action, Attitude, Ability, Analysis and Altitude. Creative activities, collage making, journaling and explorative discussion will unlock real or perceived barriers. Take away tools will arm each person for their Day of Determination. This workshop can be formatted to give people a taste in one hour or create real results in a day. Call or email to begin a conversation about how you can share the DETERMINATION EQUATION™ with your team or conference attendees.
