Remember to reserve your spot for the upcoming 2-Day EFFECTIVE GROUPS TRAINING in L.A. This course is offered by Transition U.S. who are sending facilitator Nick Osbourne on a US tour. Nick will be passing along important skillsets (and mindsets!) to help us elegantly cross any stormy seas of group process that may arise! Valuable tools for anyone involved in working with groups.
Details in a previous TCC post >>
Nick has already embarked on his tour, and word is spreading about the value of this course! Here’s a report from Amherst, Massachusetts:
I just wanted you to know that Nick ‘s Effective Collaboration training and Train the Trainer were both ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING. We had MANY very skilled, seasoned trainers in the room — college professors, consultants and leaders who had studied and facilitated true consensus, sociocracy, conflict resolution, cohousing meetings, Quaker meetings, activist meetings, and different kinds of professional and business meetings for many years. Every one of us was thoroughly impressed.
We told Nick it’s as if he’s done TWO PhD dissertations and is now on his third with holocracy.
Maybe we all liked it so much because we need it so badly over here! Ha!!
