The root of ‘facilitation’ means ‘making things easy,’ but skillful facilitation delivers a lot more than that. I bring my attention to helping you get results and actionable ideas from your program, planning event, or development project.
- I work with you to clarify and sharpen your desired, achievable result
- I bring a toolkit of diverse processes and tools to engage and deepen participation
- I enable attention to addressing sensitive and provocative points in ways that lead to deeper understanding and greater consensus
- I emphasize getting to decision or action without sacrificing opportunities to recognize differences, exchange views and come to team insights on what is needed.
“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.”
— George Bernard Shaw
“In the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed”
