Training

WaveChanger’s RbC is more than a facilitation method.

It allows every participant to maximize their abilities and brings together everybody in a way that creates alignment for action.

It is one of the most effective tools for collaborative leadership I have experienced.

I highly recommended it to managers at all levels and in all types of organizations.

Collaborative Leadership Workshop

 

What I found was extremely helpful was how Tom integrated the concepts of collaboration and leadership.

I think it is really applicable in a lot of contexts, whether it’s a profit or non-profit organizations. It also it provides a lot of really useful and powerful applications.

Having spent years as a leader I am constantly positioning myself as a student I’m always looking for new insights and learnings.  I am taking away a lot of things today.

Tom provides little concepts that you tend to overlook.  It’s all about incremental gains and that for me was very valuable.

So, from a corporate point of view I thought it was excellent.  The delivery was superb.

The concept of Collaboration was unpacked in such a way that I can take what I learned here today and apply it on Monday.  Lots of nuggets, especially the KUDA model.

I came in thinking it was going to be watered-down content but I was impressed with depth of the material.  Absolutely lots of wisdom that I can take away today.

RbC Facilitator Training

Whether your leading one meeting with 6 people or facilitating a three-day collaboration with multiple organizations, RbC Facilitator training can help you guide a team from a dividing question to a unifying answer, or from a complicated opportunity to a simple action plan.

By clarifying the issues at hand and leveraging the hidden resources already in the room, RbC training helps ensure that teams discover solutions they can own and implement.

Just wanted to let you know that I just facilitated my first learning community for our mission agency and they were completely blown away by the quality of the process, the  power of the collaboration, and the strength of the action plans that were created. 

And I had SO MUCH FUN doing it!

Thanks for sharing your WaveChanger resources, skills, techniques, insights, and yourself with me. I think you would’ve been proud of me!

For me, this kind of Results-based Conversations and collaboration is the future.

When you need to address and solve a problem, Millennials will want to be part of the solution.

With this kind of process, the ownership can be so much higher and the long-lasting impact far more reaching.”
