Join Me for My Free, Monthly
Meeting Facilitation Play Sessions
I love thinking with people about how to design and facilitate meetings so they are engaging, useful, efficient and effective. So...
I offer a monthly Meeting Facilitation Play Session on Zoom
on the 2nd Friday of each month from 1:00 to 2:00 Pacific Time.
Drop in any month and get your questions answered
about tools and approaches to:
Increasing useful engagement
Capturing action items and supporting follow-through
Dealing with difficult meeting behaviors
...and whatever other facilitation questions are up for you that day!
Please subscribe to my eNewsletter/blog
to receive the invitation and link each month.
I hope to see you there!

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.
Creating Your New Year
Join me in a curiosity-based process to:
uncover what you want for and from yourself this year
set clear goals that are rooted in your core values, and
learn tools that can support you in creating the change you want to see.
The workshop runs three Thursday evenings, January 18th through February 1st,
from 6:20 to 8:20 p.m.. The CRN is 14631 and the cost is $49.
(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: http://www.pcc.edu/community/.
