In the recent mastermind group Terreeia and I joined, we learned that all education in the future will be online. I think it’s a stretch but suppose it makes sense given everything seems to be going that way.
I met someone recently who teaches a university course and said only parts of it are online. I’m sure those of you taking courses in college or university can relate. Even over 10 years ago, Terreeia’s one-year university course Executive Coaching Certificate was online with 2 week-long residencies.
Some training can be 100% online and some, like coaching or service requires a true experiential learning. Those of you who have attended my live courses know first-hand that my training has experiential tacit learning.
However, after 12 years of writing this blog, I’ve recently started to receive even more
emails and questions about my live workshops going online. Many from long time readers from all over the world who just can’t get to North America to attend one of my live workshops but from the US and Canada as well. So, I’m wondering now if this Spring could be the last time I’m touring the country. I will have to weigh the experiential hands-on versus online distance learning.
Last Spring in 2019 when it became supremely obvious that trends had dramatically moved from the grey trend to the black and white trend, where you couldn’t drive through a neighbourhood without seeing one white house after another, I knew I had to create a training like never before.
So I did.
To give you an idea of how good the content in this training is, I have a confession.
You ready? Here goes.
The first exterior training course I created a few years ago took me three weeks to complete. I spent two weeks taking photos and gathering information, and one week writing.
This new masterclass took me and my team four months to complete! Plus, in every city I toured throughout the country last year we drove around neighborhoods while I took photo after photo of exteriors just for you!
It’s not like anything I’ve ever done before and I’m so excited to share it with you!
When I was a brand new colour consultant, I stood in front of an apartment building that needed a new colour scheme and I’ll always remember thinking “I can hardly wait until all the possible colour schemes flash before my eyes”.
Well, 20 years and thousands of consultations later, that’s exactly how my brain works.
What would you say to a client who wanted to paint this peach house from the Tuscan trend?
If your client was tired of the stucco colour and wanted a new colour, what would you choose?
Look closely, is the stone green grey, violet grey or taupe?
Which colour would you specify for this exterior?
What would you say to a client who wanted to paint this house (below)?
Is the cream stucco working or would it look better in a pale green grey to relate to all the stone. Which green grey would you choose? What about the columns? What do we do with them? You’ll learn that in my new exterior masterclass!
In fact, by the looks of the orange and grey driveway, this house might previously have been a similar colour to the house we just saw (above).
I talk about driveways too and which colours are best (not this one, below).
Stay tuned, my next post will launch the masterclass, all kinds of great emails and training coming your way whether you need it or not.
I’ve also created step-by-step instructions for everything — as well as templates, worksheets, my bonus book of colours, and examples, examples, and more examples.
All of that — my Exterior Masterclass — is available Tuesday!
Be sure to check your inbox Tuesday afternoon. I’ll send you a link to a page with the full information.
Over to you my lovelies, how much training do you watch online already vs. in a real live classroom?
