    Fertile Ground – Facilitation + Leadership with Andres Marquez-Lara

    Fertile Ground – Facilitation + Leadership with Andres Marquez-Lara

    As a long-time facilitator, improv actor, therapist and social entrepreneur, Andres Marquez-Lara, is in the business of healing. He channels this passion as Founder and CEO of UFacilitate where he helps purpose-driven leaders create spaces for deep connection, collaboration and transformation. In this episode, Andres and Tyler explore some of the key points of effective facilitation and how those translate to critical leadership skills. Andres shares the story of how one of his greatest failures as a facilitator led to some of his deepest learning: that when we can recognize our own actions and reactions, keep curiosity at the center and step out of our own way, we leave room for deep insights to emerge. Download the 8 Points of Effective Facilitation guide at UFacilitate.com.
    Andres highlights a few other key resources you won’t want to miss: East Side Institute’s Social Therapeutics, Liberating Structures, and Books by Peter Block.

    BONUS: Revolutionizing Learning at a Medical University in Chile

    At the end of the violent dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet in 1990, Chileans united for a newfound democracy. The short interview you are about to hear picks up at this historic time, when primary care doctors at Chile’s leading medical school called for a revolutionary approach to their own learning, and that of the communities they served. Stay tuned for a conversation with a leader of that movement, Dr. Joaquín Montero.
    This short exchange with Dr. Jane Vella and Dr. Joaquín Montero offers a glimpse of the bold history of dialogue-based learning at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Please visit our website for a transcript of the episode and a timeline of the revolutionary approach that’s taken hold at the medical school.
