I offer a variety of workshops and seminars that assist organizations, corporations, and institutions build capacity of their teams, address specific challenges, and cultivate growth mindsets. Below is a selection of past workshop offerings.

Why this isn't your regular leadership and professional development program...
Key skill sets are taught as they are modeled and practiced- participants are learning while doing, not just listening to some sage on a stage.
By using a research-based pedagogy based on 30 years of success and experience teaching groups at all levels, long term impact and perspective shifting takes place.
All workshops are customized to client needs and goals.
In meetings, we carve out time to explore if there is a topic, a historical figure or moment, or a theme that closely matches client interests and needs.
Unlike standard workshops or professional development programs, we incorporate real-time feedback from participants, ensuring relevance and responsiveness to needs. Also, workshops and seminars include substantial post-workshop assessments, which are shared with senior leaders to build on what was learned and tailor future workshops.
Because these workshops and seminars are activity based, they are engaging and fun. Most crucially they are memorable and can be used to build on in the future. Read Reviews of Dr. Halvorson's past Workshops and Seminars here.
