Training & Education


Planosaurus shows leaders and managers how to achieve collaborative productivity through training and education.

The lack of education on how to manage collaborative groups – especially when you don’t manage the members – leaves many opportunities for Organizational Monsters to undermine the success of collaboration, which can cost more than just money. You don’t learn how to build collaborative productivity in school, and often, this critical skill set is excluded from the workplace training offered. It always fails to focus on the actual collaboration mechanisms if it is covered.

That is why Planosaurus offers an original and unique collaboration management training program for professionals who manage and lead collaborative work. This program is unique because it focuses on collaboration mechanisms so participants are better equipped to envision, design, and manage collaborative work even when they don’t supervise other collaborators.

Planosaurus blends original content, monsters, humor, and activities to take an in-depth look at common collaboration management challenges and help participants develop confidence and actionable skills. Our programs blend project management, program management, process improvement, change management, storytelling, strategic planning, and emergency management to extract the best concepts and tools a collaborative manager can have.


Planosaurus designs training programs for collaborative leaders and/or managers to meet our clients' specific resources and needs. If our standard formats don’t work, we can work with you to utilize the best fit for your organization, such as shorter modules, more group work, and facilitated discussions to break through challenging issues.

• Onsite training
• Workshops
• Online training


Sometimes, there are not enough people for an on-site course, or someone needs guidance working through real collaborative problems. That is why Planosaurus offers coaching to help individuals increase their knowledge, skills, and confidence in private sessions, which can be conducted onsite or virtually.

• Individuated programs
• Mentorship on demand


Organizational Monsters are a great keynote and breakout topic, whether you’re organizing a large conference, small meeting, or anything in between. We work closely with your education department or meeting planner to deliver engaging sessions designed to generate the most outstanding value so participants can immediately implement what they’ve learned.
