Polarization. Anger. Disrespect. Verbal abuse. We have all seen too much of it over the past decade. Whether it dealing with a Zoom Bomber polluting a meeting with hate speech or a person who does not listen to perspectives they disagree with, the job of being a facilitator is not getting easier.
And still people are getting good work done in settings as diverse as community town halls to focused conferences. How?
By using the tools of effective collaboration. These tools are hardly magic, but used wisely can help groups experience the magic of thinking together. My calling is to bring these tools of effective collaboration to groups who want to break out of the cycle of distrust and dysfunction and create solutions to the problems we all face. This website and my practice is all about these tools and approaches.
