We’re bringing the best experts, authors, and bright minds in the performance space together in our Training Center to help you learn and master the Essentials to Thrive now. 

COVID-19 is affecting us individually and as a community in a variety of ways. We're offering this series for free as a way to not just survive the crisis together, but to learn and thrive throughout the challenge. This series of masterclasses will help you excel whether you’re studying, working from home, or seeking ways to make the most of this time. 

Every week, we are going LIVE to bring you a new masterclass with advice from our faculty and partners. Because we want to provide you with the best content possible, we’ve partnered with incredible speakers and experts to curate extremely timely and relevant masterclasses. Each masterclass is full of expert insights, tips, and real, practical information that you can use to improve everything from workplace performance and your mindset to your productivity and leadership style. 

Why are we teaching Essentials to Thrive? 
We're all learning how to cope with our new normal of remote work and uncertain futures. Now more than ever, it’s crucial to stay motivated and find ways to be productive and get our best work done.

What a great program!  It was so inspirational and meaningful.  Liza was amazing.  She was so personal with her stories.  She broke it down to the simplest understanding. Really thought the whole “what you can control bit” was great.  I had it on speaker and my wife was even listening a bit.  

Tom, compliance role

Her tips were scalable and actionable and so, so, so timely for what we are facing right now. She honestly got me thinking about what changes (little and big) I should make to improve personally and professionally. 

This was a great use of my time, please include me in any others that you have upcoming!


Christa, marketing manager

Love this whole series! It makes me want to work for Knopman Marks. I took Series 7 and 63 training with Knopman. After hearing this masterclass series was being released, I tuned in. It's clear Knopman is focusing on what the future can be and that you have been developing your employees to succeed in the face of any challenges. Thanks again.

A lot of working mothers are struggling with a martyrdom mentality right now during the COVID-19 quarantine. This webinar really helped empower me to prioritize my growth and well-being throughout this demanding time. Thank you!
