Facilitators often ask us...

  • "What do you do with a client who does not appreciate the value of process facilitation?"

  • "How do you make the most of your facilitation by using different learning approaches? "

  • "How can facilitators deal with negative body language of participants?"

  • "How do you build the perfect meeting agenda?"

  • "How do you build confidence in all of the facilitator competencies?"

Come and learn, practice, be re-inspired, or imagine your vision as a facilitator!

This one-year online cohort offers one-on-one facilitator mentor sessions, live session with peer practice and feedback, facilitation skills training and more!

A Powerful Spectrum of Facilitators

Join our small international collaborative year long facilitation cohort. So far we have experienced facilitator participants from three continents and six countries. We will likely meet every month on the third Wednesday of the month at 7 or 8 am PT. You get 13 group sessions and three custom Mentoring sessions. Plus, you will have access to hundreds of facilitation resources and templates. All for the price of $1100-$1200 US. That’s a savings of many thousands of dollars given the cost of running this. Please take advantage of this incredible opportunity. It will never be offered again in this way.

This plan is perfect...
