What You Get in Each Course
I break everything down into digestible pieces. You’ll see where to start, what happens next, and when you’re done.
Each course focuses on Fluid Hive’s 7 Design Skills — what must be able to do to think and solve like a designer.
Fluid Hive Practice Tools are more than templates. They help you immediately apply what you learn to creating and solving.
At Your Speed
The courses are self-paced with each design as a small, self-contained learning experience. Take small bites or come hungry and devour.
See for yourself. Peek inside Designing Facilitation
Each course is built around something you’re already great at: asking questions. In Fluid Hive courses, you’ll learn each topic by learning the questions experts ask, how to answer them, and how to turn your answers into great outcomes.
The Designing Facilitation Course
Are you ready to design outstanding events that will engage participants and get the outcomes you need?
Fluid Hive's Designing Facilitation Course is a step-by-step design thinking-fueled system for creating and leading events, workshops and meetings that solve problems, save money, and protect your reputation.
Find Better Problems Course
In this self-paced, online course, Find Better Problems: Creating Better Solutions by Framing More Valuable Problems to Solve, you will learn to create more effective solutions by understanding the problem you are trying to solve.
Creating effective solutions begins with finding, defining and refining the problem you're trying to solve. I help you do that and more with step-by-step instruction and practical templates.

There are two things between us and any of our big goals: the learning and the work. To tackle a big goal, we need to learn new things and do a mountain of work at the edge of our abilities. We can use willpower to smash through these obstacles, but that’s messy and...
Early in my journey as a designer, I started noticing ways the work was calling for good teaching and understanding how people learn. There were small learning moments, like preparing workshop participants to apply their expertise in new ways. There were large...
What you create, the problems you solve, what you know, your rich experience, and your wins are very important to you. But these things only matter to others when you find ways to see inside the bubble that holds their identity and learn about who they are. A tiny...
Prefer to listen? Here's the podcast episode associated with this article. What is your learning system? Don’t worry. Even if you can’t answer that question, you still have one. It’s just operating in hope-for-the-best mode instead of create-a-good-life mode. Learning...

Meet Dawan, Your Learning Guide
I help people think and solve like a designer.
My big question at Fluid Hive: How might we build better ways to create and innovate by thinking and solving like a designer?
Fluid Hive Design Skills Courses are one answer. Fluid Hive’s Question-based Learning and Practice inside each course are more answers.
When someone listens to the Design Thinking 101 Podcast, attends a Fluid Hive workshop or event, or engages us as a consultant or adviser, I’m answering that question.
I hope you’ll join me in a Fluid Hive course so I can help you find new ways to answer your big question.
Stay lucky ~ Dawan
