People Workshop Series

Begins Thursday February 3rd 2022 at 10am MST/12pm ET

People are an organization’s most important asset and as such their approach, mindset, and daily practices should not be left up to chance. This requires paying purposeful attention to hiring, onboarding, development practices and succession practices across your organization. To be successful, organizations must intentionally create alignment between who they hire with what they are tasked to do, how they develop their skills, and how they plan for their growth and future to maximize staff potential and deliver results. This process of aligning people processes to support your organizational vision and mission provides creates an efficient and effective, people-led system to reach your organizational goals. During this 4-week workshop series, participants will:

  • Explore where the most common people challenges stem from and what you can do
  • Identify how to purposefully select staff to optimize your organization’s culture and maximize results
  • Understand the drivers of staff development and the importance of practice, feedback, coaching and modeling
  • Explore the importance of a structured onboarding plan and identify ways to better align the process your organizational goals
  • Build your bench by creating a comprehensive succession plan


In this dynamic, virtual learning environment, you’ll get everything you need to start addressing effective implementation in your work! Each week will include a 90-minute live Zoom session where we will dive deep into concepts of the 5 Dynamics of Effective Implementation™ as well as webinars and homework activities that you can complete at the time of your choosing. Each workshop series is complete with the concepts, tools, and strategies that you can immediately apply in your work. Be prepared to try these out in practice and bring your experiences back to the live sessions to discuss. 

The 90-minute live sessions will be facilitated on Zoom. To get the most out of this learning experience, you will need a computer that has video and audio capabilities. You can expect approximately 3 hours of commitment to the workshops each week which includes the live session, webinars and homework activities. While you will be able to complete the webinars and homework activities during the times that work best for you, make sure to check out the schedule for the 90-minute live sessions and mark these dates/times on your calendar! Live sessions will not be recorded or distributed so pick the workshop series that works for your schedule.

A Typical Week in the Workshop Series

The Mixed-Method Learning Approach

The Pillars Workshop Series applies a mixed-method learning approach. As a participant, you will be exposed to different methods to learn and apply the material. Each method is equally important to augment didactic instruction with live group dialogue, practical exercises, case studies, and application of specific ACJI tools. A typical week in the virtual workshop series consists of the following events and learning approaches. Each week is approximately 3 hours of live and self-paced work.


Live 90-minute integrative instruction and dialogue with ACJI Facilitators and other participants (e.g. break out groups and small teams)


Pre-recorded video instruction (e.g webinars) on the virtual classroom platform.


Weekly homework assignments to apply the principles and tools such as case studies, reflection exercises, and application of ACJI tools


Weekly activities on the virtual classroom platform to exchange your learning and experiences with other leaders in the class
