Understanding how to work with groups of people so they can produce outstanding results has never been more challenging, nor more crucial to achieving success.

This book addresses the urgent need to educate the public about the ways a Facilitator/Process Leader can help any group of people to make progress and achieve better outcomes.
 

​This first book in a series shows you how to get started as a facilitator, what I call a Process Leader, and be able to work with groups, helping them to achieve mega-outcomes in our rapidly changing times

I am a dreamer and doer who believe in relentlessly exploring what’s possible. I am passionate about helping people to work together better, I am playful and deeply invested in constant learning and development.

  1. I do this because I love it  

I believe that by helping people to work together better we can make a positive impact on our organizations, our communities, and ultimately the world. I believe facilitation should be taught from a young age and it’s a secret way to bring more joy, kindness and productivity to every workplace in the world.

  2. I am here to change the world  

I am obsessive about exceeding our client's expectations and going above and beyond for you.

  3. I don’t do mediocre 

I will help you to elevate the teamwork and collaboration in your organization by involving everyone in planning the work and purposeful communication.

  4. Trust is everything  

You’re the reason I exist. You help me create meaningful change in this world. I am obsessive about customer happiness, responding to emails and working non-stop to make sure you feel as valued, respected and appreciated as you truly are.

  5. I love my customers  

If you want to use facilitated workshops to make decisions that have already been made, do not call me. If you are not genuinely interested in what your team members have to say, do not call me either. Facilitation is a powerful tool and it needs to be used wisely to benefit the people, the planet and to bring the profit.

  6. I am not for everyone  

I believe that I can contribute to improving the wellbeing, the mental state of your teams by helping your team members to get heard, be seen by creating an open and safe space for conversations.

  7. I play my part in improving wellbeing of my clients 

I believe that you can bring out the talents and valuable ideas from every team by tapping into resources that might seem forgotten. During my facilitated workshops, it's you who bring the knowledge, and it's me who bring the structure and processes.

  8. I look up to my clients as their own source of genius and inspiration 

I believe that you can plan your projects in such a way that they can be highly successful. It’s all about doing the right projects and doing them right.

  9. ​I believe that all projects can be successful 

I believe that professional facilitation is the key to achieve diversity, equality, strong teams and therefore strong communities.

  10.  Facilitation is key

I believe that volunteering, giving back to the community is an important step in achieving fulfillment and happiness.

My vision is a world in which every community, organization, team, and individual has an opportunity to connect, fully self-express themselves, learn and contribute.

As a result of Covid -19, I believe that there is an urgent need to educate and promote facilitation as a way to get the team to do the work. By aiming to improve the teams, we improve the ways the projects and programs are done which has a direct impact on every organization, community and the world, especially in times of change or conflict.
