facilitation & Leadership Mastery Workshops: online

We want you and your projects to succeed: leaders, change makers, innovators and entrepreneurs who are building new structures for a just and sustainable world. 

In this time of massive change, social entrepreneurs and cultural creatives are being called to move mountains. It can be exhilarating work, and to sustain it we need to reflect, renew, reconnect with our soul’s calling, engage new tools, and deepen our relationships.

EMERGE COLLAB is my combined practice with the masterful Kate Sutherland.

We want to help grow Adaptive, Appreciative, Systemic, Collaborative, Relational, Embodied, Emergent, and Innovative Leadership for Social Transformation.

Offering two accessibly-priced workshops this Spring, 2020, online:

“These Facilitation Mastery workshops have profoundly shifted my attitude as a facilitator. The tools, concepts and exercises offered gave me access to many new approaches that are now integral to my own practice. Kate and Christine have a magic touch when it comes to create a welcoming and productive workspace and I invite all facilitators, newly minted and well seasoned, to experience their work.”   David Kohler, Education Consultant, Facilitator, Trainer & Coach

“Field Shift shone a light on the invisible elements of group work that are often felt but not explored. Kate and Christine bring deep experience and skill in facilitation, and provide a space for everyone to speak to and experience the unexplainable. Their work has encouraged me to expand my senses in service of better dialogue and inclusive outcomes.”   Virginia Cullen, Environmental Engineer and Impact Strategy Consultant

“The workshop was a wonderful process… it opened my head and heart, stretched my brain and gave me new language (words) and practices to manage and understand change. As a professional in the information technology industry, it has once again made me realize the importance of experiences and reflection when managing changes (workplace, teams, families, personal, etc.) I am not second-guessing what I am doing or where I am going with change as I might have done before the workshop. I gained the confidence to be exactly where I am and intentional about understanding others’ perceptions of change. I am understanding the ‘big picture’ better and my/our role in the evolution of change. I value intuition more, my own and others’.”  Ann Filbert, Information Technology Leader
