Raising the bar. Not just your bar, but the bar of those around you.
The benefit of a group workshop isn’t efficiency. It’s the magic that comes from being around people who are better than you. More passionate, more connected, more informed. Not all of them, not all the time, certainly. At any given moment, you’re the smartest person in the room.
The rest of the time, though, you get the benefit of learning from someone with something to show you, inspire you and teach you.
