Open Space Technology Practice Retreat

The OpenSpaceTechnology/PracticeRetreat is an intensive retreat for leaders, managers, facilitators, consultants, community activists, and anyone else who wants to open more space for renewal, visioning, learning and productivity -- in business, government, educational and community organizations. This is an opportunity for deep learning about leadership and change, in the context of the practices that support facilitating Open Space.

Facilitator Coaching and Partnering

MichaelHerman works one-on-one with leaders who want to open space, when schedules, distance, and learning needs require a more immediate and specialized approach. Do you prefer to learn by direct experience and partnering -- and do you have at least one specific situation for using OpenSpaceTechnology? Then you might consider having coaching support before, during and after the event, onsite or behind the scenes, working as equal partners, teaching you or your organizing group as much as possible and visible to your client/organization only as you choose along the way. Mix your situation(s) and facilitation with MichaelHerman's experience -- learning and doing together. WhatPeopleSay?
