Drop in any month and get your questions answered
about tools and approaches to:

Agenda design

Increasing useful engagement

Effective decision-making

Capturing action items and supporting follow-through

Dealing with difficult meeting behaviors


...and whatever other facilitation questions are up for you that day!

Through Portland Community College:

(See below for registration info)

I do workshops fairly regularly through PCC's continuing education division. These are offered online using Zoom and, usually,  Mural (one of my favorite tools). When we are using Mural, you will need a computer, rather than a phone, to participate.

Tools for Getting Unstuck

Feeling stuck is an experience common to all of us. It stifles creativity, brings up judgment, anxiety, and wastes time. Learn ways to get out of stuck spots, make decisions you'll feel good about and create the forward motion you need to create the changes you want. These techniques can be used at a personal level and in organizations (workplaces, boards, families, recreational and creative groups, etc).

The workshop runs four consecutive Thursday evenings, starting April 18th
from 6:20 to 8:20 p.m.. The CRN is 25017 and the cost is $59.


(Moving from) Complaints to Collaboration

Complaints, our own and other people's, can feel like burdens and shut us down. Learn simple and effective ways to shift your own approach, or the dynamics in your organization or relationship, from complaints-based to collaboration-focused.

The workshop runs two Thursday evenings, March 7th and 14th, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.. The CRN is 14630 and the cost is $39.



Preregistration is required for PCC workshops, and can be done through the PCC website at:
