What: Let’s collaborate to serve the needs and goals related to your situation. Online and by phone we can design tailored, productive processes that encourage effective action. To address a range of issues and opportunities, participants would include formal and informal leaders. Groups of 5-8 people are typical, though arrangements for fewer participants and individuals are possible. In the process, supported priorities include stimulating curiosity and creativity as well as building trust. Humor and storytelling are options to elicit insight, energy, and originality.
How: Focused conversation about your situation includes goals and values, challenges and growth. Aided by relevant choices among over 250 free guides and other original materials, continuing communication occurs during and after collaborative consultation. Clarity and commitment to meeting mutual expectations and positive outcomes are encouraged.
Also supporting the success of the process is attention to static comfort zones and possible resistance, including opportunities through unlearning. Other reinforcing choices are mutual mentoring, each-one-teach-one, and accountability partnering.
