As colleagues explore their beliefs, diverse perspectives and cultures, skillful facilitating among adults is necessary to expand your own capacity and the capacity of those around yourself. As a result, this institute will also be highlighting facilitative skills. Given all of the moving parts in any human system, conflict is an expected part of the process of learning and growing.


KEY AUDIENCE: Administrators, Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Support Staff leaders

This institute identifies the structures necessary for challenging the isolating silos that exist in schools, departments and offices as they inhibit adult growth. Strong collaboration structures and skills become the process necessary for organizations, teams and meetings to be high functioning ones. The institute also uncovers the components of organizational complexity, and the skillset to live in ambiguity. You will identify and practice skills to understand your colleagues’ perspectives while withholding judgment, and embrace a process of group development on a continuum which constantly evolves and transforms.
