Support Teams Workshops
Community Conversations are small groups of people from your community (e.g. teams, circles or committees) that come together for a specific purpose. These can be: connecting with one another, building relationships, team building, problem solving, decision making, or addressing conflict. The goal is to learn from each other in a safe and engaging way. We lead the conversations in a circle format where everyone has a chance to share and be supported. Community conversations create a spirit of curiosity, respect and appreciation while building trust and discovering common grounds. We facilitate the conversations or we can teach your leaders how to facilitate them.
