Leverage Your Most Important Facilitation Tool: Your Self!

Generative Facilitation is the Art and Mastery of facilitating groups to effectively

  • navigate intentional innovation and holistic change.
  • engage in journeys of collective discovery for actualizing highest future potential and collective creativity.
  • design and facilitate these processes by using an integrated framework and roadmap inspired by some of the best proven facilitation and innovation methodologies, latest insights from research as well as old wisdom traditions
  • co-create and develop healthy organizations and communities of excellence.
  • activate and leverage the intelligence of the head, heart and hands by nurturing curiosity, compassion and courage.

In this Foundation Course you will learn how to:

  • embody and integrate the intelligence of the head, heart, and hands in facilitation.
  • facilitate from the emerging future and help groups to unleash their generative potential for intentional co-creation, innovation, and change.
  • facilitate inner shifts for transforming dysfunctional thinking patterns, behaviors and relationships towards creativity, generative dialogue and collaboration.
  • remain centered, open and connected to be able to hold difficult feelings along the way.
  • strengthen your own inner ground and connect with your intention and resources to increase your impact and stay focussed and nourished in your work and life.
  • cultivate curiosity, compassion, and courage – in yourself and in others.
