Our winter Certification training weekend will be over Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend, January 18th-20th, in Brooklyn, NY!
This is the Certification you’ve been waiting for.
You’re creative, you know you have something to teach, and you want to make the world a better place.
Join Katie and students from all over the country in building a highly profitable business leading the
“Improvisation For Life” Workshops & Retreats.
Is This Certification Right For Me?
YOU HAVE A GIFT
You want to coach people. You know you are good with people who are going through transitions, and you know something about life. You want to help. But it’s hard to know exactly how to create a retreat or workshop. And it’s even waaaaay harder to know how to create a business that supports you in doing this work you crave.
That’s where we come in. You will be trained in creating your workshop, using either Katie’s format or your own content. Katie has 20 years experience and has taught 10,000 people how to use the tools of improv in every day life. She knows how to work with a group. She knows how to command a room, and how to lead people into finding their potential. She also knows how to deal with difficult things that can come up. She will teach you how to manage a group, change your plan on the fly when things don’t go as you’d expected, and she will help you learn to inspire people to make the most of their lives and fill them with meaning and purpose.
And you will learn how to make a living at this!
WHO IS THIS FOR?
If you are a fan of Katie’s “Improvisation For Life” workshop/retreat, Katie’s podcasts, book, or her speaking, then you know Katie’s coaching is for you. You will be certified in teaching these workshops with your own twist.
If you want to be coached to create your own workshop and retreat — perhaps one using another kind of improvised art — Katie will coach you to create your own retreat and will lead you to get your business up and running and profitable.
