Overview Details

Facilitating Transformation

Ever attend a workshop and couldn’t wait to get out of there? Or worse, you were the facilitator and didn’t know what to do when people started arguing, shutting down, texting or leaving? Great facilitation can transform groups and teams, families and communities, organizations and movements—and ourselves!

This program is designed for visionary leaders who are serious about supporting personal growth.

What you will experience

Our core values are woven throughout the curriculum:

  • Connection: Supporting compassion and understanding across differences

  • Diversity: Fostering inclusion, where individual differences are valued and leveraged to create synergy

  • Compassion: Translating judgment into understanding, curiosity, and interdependence

  • Transformation: Adapting to change and taking advantage of growth opportunities

  • Transparency: Sharing information, observations, and interests openly and caringly

  • Vision: Unleashing passion to create a more desirable future

What you will learn

Our bold approach to facilitation gives you practical tools to:

  • Deepen understanding of group dynamics

  • Tap the desire to build energized, productive teams

  • Expand cultural intelligence and work on real-life challenges

  • Create a culture of shared power, heart connection and inclusion

  • Receive feedback and mentoring on your facilitation skills

We also support you in generating creative ideas, solving tough problems, resolving conflict and making decisions collaboratively.

Revolutionize your meetings and the people who attend them...

Powerful meetings aren’t just about getting the work done or making sure everyone gets to talk. The best meetings provide structure and efficiency without sacrificing human connection.

Rather than watching people constantly check their phones, you can discover how to lead meetings where participants fully engage and collaborate. Your meetings can bring out the best in people and produce extraordinary outcomes.

Excellent facilitators do way more than manage meetings. They support participants to develop their facilitation skills so that in turn, they can lead their own meetings which transforms the organization. Vital creativity is released and people are liberated to build the capacity of the organization.
