What I do….
My goal is to work as an agent for change within arts and other social purpose organizations, collectives and networks as a facilitator, researcher, or trainer. I support groups working in a culture of collaboration and respect, or which want to move to that culture. I want to help you do your best work.
My areas of special interest include governance and group process within organizations and networks, strategic plans, Board training, and interest-based negotiation training. I am an excellent facilitator and am happy to work for single meetings to smooth your process through difficult decision-making or longer commitments.
I have a Certificate in Alternative Dispute Resolution and can support you in working through conflicts and change. I deliver a workshop on Conflict which includes Conflict Styles.
I have leadership experience and a strong voice, however, my professional interest is in supporting others in developing their own voice and vision. I work within a continuum of completely facilitative with a neutral voice to an authoritative voice based on substantive knowledge, dependent on your needs.
My skills are relevant also to social enterprises and certain small businesses. My experience is primarily within micro and small not-for-profit organizations.
