Hello, dear colleagues -
This is a message about an upcoming workshop for those of you in or around or visiting California next month: The Power of Pre-Work - August 8-10 in San Francisco.
I invite you to join me for this learning experience - which is not particular to Open Space but for any face-to-face dialogue approach we may use: Lessons learned and shared about pre-work.
Thanks in advance for sharing the word - through email, tweets, other social networks, or face-to-face over a good beverage with your friends, clients and colleagues.
I look forward to learning with and from you there - Lisa

Facilitating face-to-face staff meetings, community gatherings, planning sessions, conferences and committees:
It is not just about showing up and doing some sort of magic facilitation on the day of the event.
Learn how thoughtful, thorough pre-work can support the success of a dialogue event.
For people of all levels of experience - although you will be able to retain more of your learning about pre-work if you already do some facilitation work
Whether you facilitate using Open Space Technology, the World Cafe, Future Search, or other tools, processes and methods with and without names - everything in the full system of your event affects and impacts everything else. Share what you have learned and learn more about all of the elements of Pre-Work. It is all part of an ecology of interrelated elements.
Pricing - as always - is flexible - custom tailored to what you as an individual can contribute and afford.

I look forward to learning with and from you,
