A rich reference guide provides dozens of tools and templates for use during and after our workshop. Since each session is interactive, we recommend groups of between 8-15 people.

  • Balancing participation evenly
  • Consensus-building, prioritizing and decision-making
  • Facilitating for innovation
  • Crafting and posing powerful questions
  • Navigating through cultural differences

Participants are encouraged to bring real-life situations to discuss and work on during real-time “clinics.”
