Hello! I'm Phil LaViolette founder of evalu8d and resourcily.

About Resourcily

resourcily evalu8d logo

resourcily is the training and resources portal from evalu8d. Created by Phil LaViolette, with one aim in mind to get our training and techniques out to as many people as possible.

It's packed with answers to the questions I am constantly asked as a trainer,

"Phil what would you do if......"

resourcily answers lots of those questions, and more.

I ventured out on my own setting up evalu8d in 2005. Since the conception of evalu8d, I wanted to add a resource sharing site, a portal for delegates to continue learning following workshops they attend.

In 2007 the first variation of this was added as a delegate only area on evalu8d.com

In 2008 we opened the site to the 'public' and created members resources, and ever since we've continued to add a variety of resources.

Eight years later, in 2016, I made the decision to expand and grow the portal, and so resourcily was born!

On the 31st January 2017 we officially launched resourcily, and we have been adding content ever since.

The hints, tips, and tutorials contained here in resourcily, have been developed over 25 years from my experience of working in companies large and small. My team have added some amazing content too, from their vast experiences.

Some are based on well-established theories, a lot of it comes from the University of Life and the School of Hard Knocks.

They're all practical and many I use myself with great success.

No matter what your role is in life or work, we have lots of techniques on how to deal with different people and tasks, in work and life.

Ever wondered what's the best way to give someone feedback, or how to come across as more professional. Perhaps you want to learn how to raise your profile, or maybe even ways to say no?

The techniques I have learnt and use, work in so many circumstances, and nothing pleases me more that when someone says "I used X that I learnt on one of your courses, and it really helped!"

So please tell your friends and colleagues, share links to us and let's make resourcily known as THE place to get practical training and resources.

About Phil

From the age of 13 I've been involved with coaching and training. Starting out as a Gymnastics Coach, I loved supporting others to be better at what they do. That's a key reason why I entered the world of training as a profession.

My first professional role, if you discount pocket money as a Gymnastics Coach, began 25 years ago. It's been a rollercoaster of a journey, packed with rich experiences of working with people at all levels and backgrounds.

I've trained people in lots of organisations, across a 25 year training career. Here's some examples of people I've trained and organisations I've worked, either as company trainer, freelance trainer or direct clients.1
