Duarte is looking for contract facilitators passionate about communication and the power that strong communication skills have on individuals and within organizations. You will deliver Duarte methodology through one day or two day workshops across the U.S. and occasionally around the globe. The ideal candidate will be an excellent facilitator, listening as much as talking, and exhibiting the Duarte method within the workshop itself.
Successful facilitators come from all walks of life; teachers, professors, sales managers, marketing professionals—even pastors. Experience in facilitating conversations to persuade people to action is a must! The right contract facilitator needs to be independently employed, a self-starter, able to multi-task, be dependable, and have excellent delivery skills. The contract facilitator is responsible for scheduling his/her own work days, owning his/her work output, and finishing strong with all follow up and invoicing. This position has no direct supervisory responsibilities.
Among the responsibilities for this role, you will:
- Consistently self-manage. You are an independent contractor, owning your time for preparation, travel and delivery. With self-management comes efficient use of time, accuracy, responsiveness and all things that make you a joy to work with. - Facilitate with inspiration. You must have strong delivery skills that have energy and engagement. Earn a 4.75 average rating or more, per workshop. - Represent Duarte well. You are on the frontline of engagement with Duarte clients. Your actions have a great deal of influence on the Duarte brand and reputation. You strive to exhibit a positive example for everyone. - Communicate clearly. You represent a world-class communications firm, so communicating with consistency and clarity is important. You provide excellent workshop experience from client pre-consult call through to follow-up. - Honor Duarte clients. You exhibit commitment, integrity and trust when interacting with Duarte employees, other contract facilitators, clients and potential clients. You build mutually respectful relationships and successful partnerships. - Deliver with knowledge—and humility. You will be well trained in Duarte’s methodology. While that makes you a subject matter expert, you will deliver workshops from the position of a humble mentor, meeting attendees where they are at, and guiding them to adopt a new way of thinking. - Adjust for your audience. You know how to read the room, and to adjust on the fly. Different tactics may need to be used on different audiences. You have confidence and experience to try and learn. - Personalize lessons. You will be open and share your stories to underscore lessons and learning. - Support Duarte’s growth. You will share insights gained in the field, to improve workshop experiences and support potential new business. - Work within PowerPoint. We’re a presentation agency at our heart, so you will know your way around PowerPoint enough to modify slides and move slides around based on your attendees’ needs. - Build a trusting work relationship. You demonstrate Duarte core values and high ethical business practices in everyday actions. - Support others. You will support team members—Duarte employees and other contract facilitators—in shared responsibility, encouragement, open communication and trust. You are enthusiastic, friendly, honest, modest, flexible, dependable and understanding of others needs and situations. And we, in turn, will be open, encouraging, supportive and trusting of you.
You need to have a combination of education, experience and ability, including:
- Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in marketing, business or design discipline - 5 to 7 years of experience in a creative agency, client service company, teaching / learning environments, corporate speech-language pathologist, or other related fields. - Independent contractor with source of income from at least 3 other work. Proof of other clients will be required. - Stand and facilitate a room of 30+ people without amplification for 7+ hours, several days a week. - Lift/carry from 1 – 25 pounds in workshop materials, to set-up workshop room. - Excellent presentation skills to present information and respond to questions from groups of people. - Working knowledge of Mac OS and Windows. Proficiency in PowerPoint, Word, Microsoft Outlook for email and scheduling, and web browsers for learning management system access. - Regular and required domestic travel via car or plane, with occasional international travel. - Valid driver’s license and passport required. - All necessary vaccinations and shots for international travel are to be maintained. - Outstanding leadership and organizational skills - Excellent communication skills to speak with clients and attendees, and write reports and other business correspondence. - Excellent problem-solving ability

After 30 years, we still focus on building a company that people love to work with. We want our clients to recommend working with us to a friend or colleague because they've learned something that changed their career, or because they had a genuinely great experience with us. To keep that up, we like to hire people who plant themselves here and stay for decades instead of days. We want you to grow here with us and see the fruits of your labor.
