Skillful collaboration is facilitated by an open mind and heart, keen powers of observation of self and others, compassionate communication, a whole-systems view and a willingness to witness and experience transformation. This workshop will promote these qualities while seeking to enhance leadership skills, self-awareness and a capacity to contribute to positive change at any scale. Participants will be introduced to a variety of group work and collaborative leadership tools.

By practicing presence and unlocking our creativity, we can realize our potential as inspired and skillful facilitators or participants in any group system. Join us as we work to improve our practical facilitative tools for decision–making and conflict resolution, as well as develop the courage to imaginatively embrace emergence.

Participants can expect to:

  • Learn how to think in terms of whole systems
  • Learn about compassionate communication skills, group culture and ground rules
  • Be introduced to a practical and comprehensive facilitator’s tool box
  • Explore and better understand group dynamics, group leadership and facilitation
  • Be introduced to stage theory and explore patterns of group evolution
