Diversity and Inclusion: We believe that to be truly inclusive a workshop is not enough. Instead, we use baseline assessments and behavioral changes to develop inclusive cultures through coaching and specific, measurable goals. We can also facilitate conversations regarding unconscious bias, conscious bias, and assimilation. For more about our work on this topic, please see our Transition Management Consultants page.


Nextpat hosts a variety of workshops on topics ranging from management for first time managers to resiliency for an austere environment. We tailor our workshops to our audiences, including for specific organization audiences and participants.


Our workshops are fun and engaging virtually or in-person and tailored to the audience. We use interactive technologies and facilitated conversations to allow attendees to implement the ideas right away.

Check out a sampling of our workshop topics below. Many topics can apply to multiple, diverse audiences and can be adapted to your audience.
