Drawing from facilitation experience, co-creative practices, systems thinking, design thinking, user-centric design, community mediation and engagement methods, we delve into how to create people-centric organizational change. We'll be discussing themes of listening, empathy, culture-building and connection-making, tackling the complex challenges we face as people, teammates, and organizational innovators.

This bonus activity is designed to serve as your audio facilitator through an actual co-design workshop.

The Way We Co-Design, Part 1: Exploring co-design in conversation

The Way we Hold Space: the Art of Creating Space for Something New to Emerge
When all the perspectives have been heard and the problem is known, but no decision has been reached yet, no solution designed, what is the role of a leader in the change-making process? This episode we explore the importance of holding space for ideas and solutions to emerge—in the work of innovation and in our daily lives.
The River: A guided reflection for the close of the year

The Way We Listen
In this deep dive of a conversation with seasoned facilitators Ceri Rees and Kevan Gilbert, we turn our attention to small-scale listening and its big-scale impact: on our relationships at work and ultimately in our work itself. Focusing in on interpersonal and group dynamics and drawing from Ceri and Kevan's experience, we explore ways to intentionally create environments that welcome skillful listening. And we discuss the work of achieving a balance of safety and assertion: asking ourselves how we can avoid empty exercises and instead share truly valuable exchanges of ideas and perspectives. It's a a well-informed, expansive and yet intimate conversation that left us more attuned to our own listening practices in our everyday work life and gatherings.
