Dorie shares how she created an online course by starting with a test group. And then, she began developing the content in real-time, asking questions and taking feedback from the participants to nail down what was most important to them. Plus, she explains how she adds community to the fully developed course and why that aspect is so important to make the content really stick.
Finally, we discuss the future of thought leadership post-COVID-19. Dorie and Peter talk about the plans that are being made to account for the unknown variables that still lie ahead. They discuss what changes we’ve made that we might stick with and what old habits will we return to.
