I expected to learn tips and tactics. I had no idea how personally transformational it would be. My confidence and effectiveness improved so much—I was thrilled (and so were my clients).

For everyone interested in facilitating the wisdom of individuals and groups.
Learn to create the conditions for transformation, accountability, and creativity in groups, workshops, retreats, and trainings. Empower yourself and others to heal and grow by cultivating trust—the foundation for safe inquiry and authentic dialogue. Role-plays, fishbowl simulations, and case studies make this workshop dynamic and interactive.

- Use intention, attention, agreements, and conscious communication
- Hone mind-body coaching skills to listen, reflect, encourage, and ask powerful questions
- Respond wisely to clear obstacles, upsets, and confusion
- Build consensus and group synergy with your presence and support.
