This is a highly experiential workshop covering an integrative and powerful approach to leading collaboration. It focuses on the nuts-and-bolts planning, facilitation, and leadership practices to help diverse groups move from goal setting to advancing real work together. We combine mini-lectures with applied facilitation in real situations, covering both virtual and in-person collaboration. We also use real facilitation challenges faced by participants to learn and apply methods for moving through conflict, confusion, and uncertainty in groups.


This workshop will support you to:


  1. Combine the best of leadership and collaboration to lead change more powerfully

  2. Lead more effectively through confusion and avoid conversations that run in circles

  3. Set and work with others from a clear shared intent


You will leave this workshop with increased effectiveness and skill in:


  1. Setting an intentional agenda

  2. Setting the context, space, and pace at the beginning of a meeting

  3. Establishing a culture of accountability

  4. Shaping the conversation and giving direction during and between meetings

  5. Creating a narrative for the group that builds momentum

  6. Moving from discussion and insight to real work products
