I'm a high energy facilitation geek who loves to talk about "pedagogical choices". I explore how design functions in groups and meetings, and the role of the "facili-trainer" in our leading and learning spaces.
I am a facilitator, instructional designer, and consultant on leadership, organization learning and inquiry based instruction. I use a lot of Liberating Structures, neuroscience research, and growth mindset in my approach to leading, training and facilitation.
I especially LOVE asking,
"How is participation distributed here?"
"What can we STOP doing to make room for innovation?"
What I Do.
Facilitation, instructional design, board retreats, facilitator training and consulting for individuals, organizations and communities.
Work with me to:
...create strong and enduring initiatives
…facilitate important decision making
...reinvigorate workplace learning culture
...design powerful large and small group learning events and meetings
How I Do It.
Brain Based: I incorporate the latest neuroscience research into meeting and learning designs
Design Thinking: The Stanford model of Design Thinking greatly influences my thinking. I can teach and apply these methods.
Adult Learning: I know and apply the core principles of adult orientations towards learning and help to develop metacognitive and growth mindset awareness in everybody I work with.
Inquiry and Coaching: Using the power of a well-timed, open-ended question to help guide your thinking, I support your best thinking.
