So where & when is Lou Hayes, Jr offering workshops, training events, & courses?

Lately, the highest demand is for the signature 3-day Growing Adaptive Thinking workshop that Lou does with Thom Dworak. It's an interactive forum where attendees discuss and debate the ins-and-outs of adaptability, complexity, human learning, creativity, decision-making, and so much more. The pilot offering was in May 2017 (read this for a debrief of that initial class) and has taken off since then!
