Effective Groups Training! Oct 5-6 2013 + Train the Trainer, Oct 7 2013

Effective Groups Training in Los Angeles

Effective Groups is a skills-building training for individuals and teams.  It started with Transition Town Groups in mind but this course is really for anyone involved in social change efforts. Effective Groups is a dynamic and engaging training course which covers key skills for collaboration.

This two-day workshop is facilitated by one of Transition UK’s lead trainers, Nick Osborne. Over the last 19 years, Nick has worked in a variety of management, leadership, training, consultancy or activist roles with a range of organisations including Changemakers, Shell, Amnesty International, the Ecovillage Network and Transition Network. On his U.S. tour, Nick will also be offering Effective Groups Trainings  in Amherst, MA and San Francisco Bay area. TCC is honored to be assisting Transition U.S. Transition Network (UK) in bringing these important communication & collaboration skills to Southern California.

Keeping it Real — Nick’s blend of modern management theory married to his practical knowledge supported by his wealth of personal experience produced a thoroughly practical and yet profound course that provided a significant triple bottom line benefit for us. Whatever your need, Nick will weave magic for your organization.” — Phil Dunn, Sustainable Brampton (UK)
