Would you like to improve your skills in leading effective meetings?

Meetings can be challenging and we are here to help.  We offer both individual coaching or group coaching.

Group sessions are learning communities focused on application of various facilitation tools and methodologies to specific situations facing group members. We ensure a safe and conducive space for sharing and learning.  Participants appreciate that their time is well spent.   

Individual coaching provides focused attention on a specific meeting or conference.  Our services range from assisting you with developing creative ways to engage participation, to session design, to shadow facilitation and on-site support.

We also provide mentoring support for those seeking professional certification from either the International Association of Facilitators or the Institute of Cultural Affairs in the Technology of Participation.  Candidates are support by our Master’s Program (MToP) and also team coaching.  For more information, contact Nileen Verbeten, nverbeten -at- gmail -dot- com, 916-705-1203
