Adaptive Schools explores how to develop skills as facilitators and informed group members in informal and formal settings, in small and large groups. Participants will practice implementation, describe specific ways to weave the collaborative fabric of a faculty, develop group member skills, and acquire the principles and understandings to engage in a continuous cycle of team and individual improvement.

Highlights of the Seminar include:

  • Increased capacity to initiate, develop, and sustain high functioning groups
  • An expanded repertoire of practical facilitation tools
  • Skills to move groups beyond consensus to common focus
  • Ways to value and use dissension, argument and conflict
  • Strategies for keeping group members on track, on topic, energized and resourceful
