Group development facilitation

All Aboard!    Your Group or Team can go further, faster

You may be familiar with the classic FORMSTORMNORMPERFORM model of group development.  Groups generally move through these stages both in short events, like an afternoon workshop, and over the long-term, as with a work team.

I help your group move up that capability curve
faster and more smoothly.

It makes a huge difference.  When a group reaches the Norm and Perform stages quickly, and with a solid developmental foundation, it can accomplish so much more over time!  (Pro tip:  Storming is NOT necessary!)  And even groups who’ve made it to the Norm and Perform phases need occasional “tune ups” to keep the energy up and things working smoothly.

How about giving your group a boost?  Let’s consult and brainstorm about the next logical step in your group’s development.  It could be anything from a facilitated meeting or training session, to a lively teambuilding drum circle!

Let’s create powerful, fun ways to take your group or team further, faster!
