Facilitators’ Dojo

Skills for nimble cross-boundary collaboration.

Facilitate genuine collaboration that bridges divides.

Welcome to the Facilitators’ Dojo—a powerful skill-building space designed specifically for Agile practitioners like you, who face the daunting task of bringing together diverse groups across organizational boundaries. 

We understand that silos can make strangers out of colleagues – and how challenging it is to maintain a comprehensive view when deep expertise can unintentionally narrow our perspective. 

It’s not uncommon to feel misunderstood, or to find that trust builds frustratingly slowly within collaboration. 

Enhanced listening skills are essential—not only to prevent the onset of impatience and misunderstanding but to foster a genuinely collaborative environment. 

Here in the Dojo, you’ll learn not just to hold a neutral and receptive stance, but also to facilitate these experiences for your groups, ensuring that every voice is heard and valued. 

Join us to build your skills in the art of facilitation to bridge divides and build stronger, more cohesive collaboration. This is a high bar, but when we cultivate relationships and connection, we can generate learning, enjoyment, and intrinsic satisfaction for collaborations no matter how strong the silos. 

Are you ready to become a more capable cross-boundary facilitator?

Become known in your organization for fostering great collaboration

Create a safe space where people feel comfortable and can share their unique interests and differences

Stay in your neutrality in a way that adds value for the group

What you'll learn

How it works

Our decades of work with highly effective facilitative leaders and coaches reveals a shared characteristic: the most adaptive facilitative leaders possess a suite of facilitative leadership skills that increase their situational agility, particularly when collaborating across boundaries. 

And the cornerstone of developing such agility? Experiential practice.   You’ll play with your peers in an array of skill-building activities and scenarios.

This fun, engaging, immersive experience will boost your confidence and enhance your facilitation skills elevating the effectiveness of your conversations and meetings.

In the dojo, embodied skills practice strengthens your ability to make all kinds of collaboration work.
