Real feedback and comments from past Family Teams Weekend attendees
1. Do we have to register separately as a couple or just one person?
Each ticket or registration is good for ONE couple (two people). So you only need to purchase and register once to allow both you and a spouse to come.
2. How is this different than some of the other resources Family Teams has put out?
While an illustration or point might be similar, the overarching weekend and workshop will be vastly different than any course or book that Family Teams has put out. We also believe even if you have consumed or engaged with all of the Family Teams resources (or you haven’t!) there is something special about being in a room with 250 couples who also are building their multigenerational family team on mission. Workshopping together, in the same space, has a million intangibles unfolding that you simply can’t get in a course or book and also gives you space to process and ask direct questions and get immediate feedback. Also, we will be doing two different ‘tracks’ for people who are new to the family teams concept, and another track for those who are more familiar and already have the building blocks.
3. What is the schedule?
We will release the schedule in a more detailed way as we get closer to the event via email, but know we will start Friday night with our kickoff session at 7pm and end Saturday night at 10pm!
4. What if we’ve already been implementing ‘Family Teams’ ideas? Is this for us?
YES! This is actually one of the things we are most excited about–we are going to have two tracks going simultaneously during the weekend. We will all gather together for specific larger teachings, but then be splitting up through the weekend into two tracks–beginning and advanced. So if you are already implementing some things and want to take your family to the next level we have a whole track for you. This will involve more personal coaching, assessing, newer ideas, and more. So in short, yes, and you can just pick the ‘advanced’ track once the weekend starts! Note: you don’t need to do anything different upon registering. We will tell you how and what track to take once we are in the room together on Friday for the kickoff.
5. Would this be good for us if we are married with no kids?
There certainly will be some content that will be specific to families and children, but yes we actually very much believe this event will be and can be life changing for married couples with no kids as well. We usually have a large portion of ‘married only’ at our past workshops and we’d love to have you! The minute you get married you are a family, regardless of kids, and ‘family’ and ‘marriage’ are more intertwined than we like to think. Also the exercises and plans and sessions will be beneficial as well as give clarity and tons of things to take home for those who are just married.
6. Are you able to offer refunds?
Unfortunately we are not at this time. Live events are tough, especially when they sell out, to measure or have the ability to refund without taking a loss ourselves on that ticket. But, we totally understand things come up and things happen, so please email us at [email protected] and we can try and find a unique solution, like holding your ticket for you for any future Family Teams Weekend workshops!
7. Does the workshop ticket include food or hotel stay?
One workshop ticket only covers admittance for 2 into the workshop. Lodging, flights, food etc are not included. We of course will have refreshments and light snacks throughout the weekend! Who can have a workshop without coffee?! You can trust us on that one.
8. Is childcare provided or are kids allowed?
Childcare isn’t provided and kids are not allowed at the workshop, but nursing babies are totally a great exception! We will have a special nursing mothers room at all locations and will do our best to make you (mom) and baby feel as comfortable as possible!
