Each organisation and community is unique, at a particular point in their journey, with their own mission, strengths and challenges. There are also well tried and tested tools and practices that can support people to work together in a way that is effective, creative, enjoyable and connecting.
I work alongside you to understand what is needed and co-design sessions to respond. I start each project by hearing about the people, context, needs, power, mission, challenges and resources involved. From there we can co-create an approach that supports collective wisdom to emerge. This might include…
- Facilitation with Art of Hosting, ULab or Liberating Structures
- Inclusive decision making based on Convergent Facilitation, Deep Democracy or Consensus
- Conflict Resilience using Restorative Circles, NVC Mediation or conflict coaching
- Systems Building through dialogue and systems thinking
- Nonviolent Communication (nvc) training for groups or individuals
- Specific support with strategy, planning or other group challenges
I have a variable day rate, depending on the project and resources of the organisation. Any additional contribution supports me to give more time to projects that have limited financial resources. I also do pro bono work with social change movements and with grassroots groups in my local community.
I also run workshops supporting personal transformation and self acceptance: asweare.info.
Here are what other people have told me they value in what I bring: “Seeing links with other people, projects or issues; Eliciting responses and contributions; Valuing each input and visibly showing real interest; Helping people explore themselves, their feelings, intentions, and dreams; Empowering others to take a lead; Clarity of timing for tasks; Speed of structuring activities and discussion sessions; Sorting priorities and themes.“
I am grateful to have a strong network of skilled and experienced collaborators with different specialisms, so we can introduce other skillsets and experiences to support what is needed. You can see some of these connections through Reconnect Works.
