Most of us know the intractable challenges. Yet many of us also know the irrepressible dreams we hold. The Art of Hosting Conversations that Matter is a participative approach for leading, convening and engaging. Now practiced world wide, it is a pattern of learning, strengthening relationships and getting to work. It is a different and complementary approach to the traditional tools of planning and public engagement. This workshop will be an experience for all who aspire to find better ways to work with groups in ways that nurture collective intelligence, shared learning and effective action for change.
Tuition includes $40 fee for course materials.
