Capacity-Building Focused Facilitation
I work with groups to co-design and facilitate meetings, retreats, and processes. My dual focus is to help you get the work done while building the capacity of the group and the people in the group.
My approach to facilitation is rooted in, and focused on:
Collaborative meeting and process design -- I bring many tools and deep experience in creating processes where good work can happen. You bring deep knowledge of your group and what it needs. We work together to create what's needed.
Nurturing respect and trust, accountability and empowerment though design and in-the-moment facilitation and capacity-building
Building commitment and capacity for intentional change
Helping groups identify, develop a common understanding of, and collaboratively work through, challenges, and imagine new and useful possibilities
Effective decision-making and delegation, and systems of reflection and generous accountability--so that what you decide leads to useful actions and those actions lead to useful learning
Development of leadership capacity and skills in the group as a whole, recognizing that leadership can happen in many ways, and from many roles
Building the group's capacity to nurture equity, inclusion and belonging
You will find more about my training and experience in the About section.

Tasha helped guide us through a difficult transition between Executive Directors. She was pragmatic and efficient at completing day-to-day tasks, while also visionary and holistic in posing strategic questions that enabled us to make the right choice for our next hire. Her skillful use of consensus decision-making was critical to her success with our organization.
