We teach workshops to help you do your best work

We all have bad habits and inefficiencies. Ignoring them is crazy, hiring consultants is expensive. Instead, invest in yourself and learn with us.

Give someone a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach someone to fish and you feed them for a lifetime. We think the same is true for your business. At Cultured Fit, we create customized workshops to teach you fishing skills of the 21st century:

Pitching Ideas

Pitching Ideas

Behind every idea is a story. Find it and distill it.

Our projects live and die by how persuasively we can communicate complex information. You'll learn techniques to tell a clear and compelling story about your idea, how to distill your message, structure your content, craft explanations, and communicate visually.

Good graphics are clear thinking made visible.

Many common practices for presenting information accidentally hide the most important point. Learn fundamental principles for structuring information that apply at all scales, from a single data figure to an entire talk.

Creative thinking is a skill you can learn.

The most creative people aren't magic; they consistently use a few habits of mind. You'll learn how to cultivate a mindset of creative rule-breaking to generate bold new ideas.

Craft International Design

Craft International Design

Designing for people you don’t know is harder than it looks.

Many products fail overseas because of cultural gaps. Culture gaps are hard to predict because our own culture is largely invisible to us. To make products succeed internationally, we must learn to see our own cultural assumptions, and to address universal human needs.

Manage Your Assumptions

Manage Your Assumptions

Manage Your Assumptions

Behind every bad decision is a wrong assumption. Learn how to spot them.

Assumptions are inescapable. Unmanaged assumptions lead to bad decision making, while well-managed assumptions improve creative output. You'll learn to manage assumptions by thinking from first principles and testing hypotheses.

Technical Communication

Technical Communication

Technical Communication

How you talk about a question is half its solution.

Even Einstein believed he didn't understand something "until he could explain it to his grandmother." Developing clear communication makes a team more productive in two ways: more brains can work on a problem, and each person's work goes further with a clearer understanding. You'll learn how the best teams talk about their work.
