Ariel Application Video Submission Guidelines

Include 5–10 minutes of video footage of you teaching an experiential exercise to a small audience and debriefing it for business/leadership application.

The goal of the video is to gain a sense of your presence, facilitation/coaching style, and business acumen. The video does not have to be client footage—a friend holding an iPhone is fine—and participants can be anyone, as long as they’re all adults.

When filming, please consider the following

  • Lead an experiential exercise you are comfortable with—we want to see you in your element.
  •  Film in a quiet, brightly lit location where we can hear and see everyone.
  • Do something short and sweet: we see more in the first couple minutes than at minute 18.
  • Include a debrief (i.e., a Q and A session; open discussion about the exercise; relating the skills you’ve just explored back to their work). What your participants say is just as important as what you say.
  • Watch your video through before you send it to make sure there aren’t any sound or visual errors.
  • Please facilitate in English if possible.

We will not consider videos with the elements below

  • You speaking solo to the camera, or a one-on-one coaching session (must be a group of 3+ people)
  • Facilitating groups of children/teenagers
  • You giving a lecture or a speech (we want to see how you incorporate your group’s participation)
  • Something rehearsed (we love “in the moment!”)

Submitting the video
Please send a link to your video via a file-sharing/video hosting service; past applicants have used YouTube, Vimeo, Dropbox, WeTransfer, or Google Drive.
