    Agile Consultant

    Next Stage Facilitation has given me a deeper understanding of groups and greater self awareness—which leads to better communications and richer relationships. As an Agile Coach, this is the best gift I could give to myself and the people I serve. This training is beautiful, complete and deep.

  • Mike Gibson
    Assistant Director, Center for Agile Technology, University of Texas

    The quality of the instructors and the caliber of the students participating in the course created an eye-opening learning experience. What is being developed here is transformative — certainly for individuals, but more importantly this perspective can transform organizations and the world for the better.

  • Krista Barbour
    Leadership Consultant

    “The Integral Facilitator Certificate Program completely changes the game of facilitation. This training incorporates so many unique and powerful aspects that teaches the practitioner to work at entirely new levels: shifting from just simply facilitating a group, to being able to hold a greater space that allows for true transformation and evolution to occur.”

  • Francois Beauregard
    CEO, Agile Developer

    “Being in the Integral Facilitator Certificate program continuously fuels my inspiration and capacity of being in service to the miracle of coming together. Profound and practical, this program is simply amazing!”

  • Tremeur Balbous
    Integral Coach, Agile Trainer

    “This has been my best experience ever in a 3 day training. Diane is an amazing facilitator! I’m currently figuring out how to get myself in the 1 year program as the 3 days were so exciting and promising in terms of my personal growth.”
