Achieve facilitation superpowers and design leadership skills with Ross

Are you wanting to learn how to lead a team through a design project? Perhaps you've read Sprint and you want to know how to run a design sprint online? Or, you've run a number of remote design sprints and you're looking for new ideas and ways to become even better?

Why learn to facilitate?

Facilitation—and specifically, remote facilitation—has been identified as one of the top career-boosting skills and is one of the best ways to set yourself apart in a stack of resumés.

People who gain confidence and skill in facilitation have more opportunities at work: they get invited to important meetings, they get involved in the decision-making process, and they gain respect for their expertise.

As a freelancer, those trained in facilitation can offer broader services to their clients and can find new (and better) ways to work with those clients. But without the skills and opportunity to practise, it’s all just book knowledge.

First, a quick reality check

Facilitation won’t:

  • Make you rich
  • Get you famous
  • Destroy your competition

Facilitation will:

  • Help you gain confidence
  • Get you taken seriously at work
  • Earn you quick wins with clients

I'm trying to make virtual design sprint training accessible, affordable and practical.

Together, we'll give you the confidence to facilitate your own remote design sprints, with the templates you need to do it right, and the skills needed to lead your team to success.

This community is for you if:

  • You’re ready to step up and lead at work, but not quite sure how
  • Your team spends too much time discussing and too little time deciding
  • You want to learn a new way of working
  • You were excited by the Sprint book and you want to learn how to run Sprints virtually
  • Discovery phases and kick-offs seem unstructured, long and not rigorous enough

You’ll learn how to confidently navigate a virtual Design Sprints and workshops, while gaining hands-on experience and personalised coaching.

Who’s behind this?

I'm Ross, and my goal is to make fantastic facilitation skills as accessible (and fun) as possible. That's why I've started sharing everything that I know in this community.

I've run 200+ Design Sprints over the past five years with clients including Google, McKinsey & Company and NatWest.

I’ve also been a senior mentor at CareerFoundry, an industry expert at Hyper Island, and a contributing author to the Official Remote Design Sprint guide.
