The Business

Weird is Nrml is a modern training and development organization. We acknowledge the feels that adults get when we learn (aka the weird and scaries) and build the capacity required to sit comfortably in that discomfort.

We believe that at the core of empathy, collaboration, creativity and communication is a willingness to be uncomfortable. We believe a willingness to be uncomfortable is not some innate bravery, rather, a skill that can be developed through exposure. We provide that exposure in a safe and supportive environment that builds teams equipped to handle the challenges of the future.

I was extremely impressed with the Weird is Nrml workshop! In between the laughter and fun, Michaud gently provoked our team to think differently about problem-solving and guided us towards authentic moments of communication and collaboration. Highly recommend!
