How do we resolve thorny social issues? How do we achieve sustainable social, economic and environmental outcomes? How do we sustain unified insight over time?
Participatory conversation is a necessity, not just wishful thinking.
We will explore appreciative inquiry, mediation, and social fieldwork as a way forward to unite our understanding. Join with others in learning how to bring these essential tools to life in your workaday projects and for ensuring sound governance.
The webinar will rotate through introductions of the following:
→ appreciative inquiry
→ social fieldwork and participatory research
→ the practice of mediation
The building blocks of a better future require understanding. Understanding comes through good conversation. Let’s unite our understanding to protect what matters most. Join us in practicing participatory conversation that matters.
These will begin in the Fall of 2023. Start date to be announced.
4pm to 5pm PST. The offering is for people in any region.

For webinar participants that would like a 1:1 consult to go over your questions, feel free book an appointment. We can discuss next steps or clarification. I suggest a half hour session before, during or after the webinar series.
Alternatively, you may wish to sign up for social fieldwork training. We plan to create an online self-pace course to begin in 2023.
We also plan to offer an array of workshops to support the soft skills of democracy including mediation.
Webinars will be ongoing. Spread the word. Practice makes perfect.
