   Why is Collaboration So Difficult?

Have you ever seen great ideas squelched by the deadening vacuum of a stuck group process or meeting? Or where the momentum of a brainstorm comes to a screeching halt after someone utters a sexist or racist comment? Or when the group splinters, no one seems happy and not one decision gets made?

Whether you're a teacher, trainer, social activist/organizer or business owner, if you've ever wondered why a group of lively humans would suddenly lose their energy and leave a brainstorm gathering you've facilitated feeling frustrated or dejected, this course is for you.

This course draws on Nonviolent Communication, Holacracy, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and systems theory, among other tools.

Learn How to Facilitate When the Going Gets Tough, including:
- How to make sure great ideas and powerful visions keep their life energy intact through a group process
- How to pivot and handle racism or sexism or any other isms that seem to derail the agenda
- How to keep the momentum when it seems impossible to keep everyone in the group happy  
- How to harness the power of your group by keeping a laser focus on purpose
- Opening into a shared holding of power without letting consensus clog the gears


  • - We'll meet via a video platform called Zoom, where you'll have the the choice to see everyone else and be seen, like in a real classroom.
  • - Recordings included (recordings only show the active speaker)
