The three-day class focuses on creating an inclusive culture of collaborative learning in teams, communities and organizations. It is for both new and experienced leaders, managers, facilitators and graduate students who would like to develop or improve their facilitation skills. It takes place at Potawatomi Inn in northeast Indiana. The workshop begins at 9:30 am on Day 1 and ends by 3:00 pm on Day 3. There are evening sessions on both the first and second days. The course also includes an introductory webinar.


  • Day 1:January 29 (9:30 am — 8:15 pm EST)
  • Day 2:January 30 (8:00 am — 8:00 pm EST)
  • Day 3:January 31 (8:15 am — 2:45 pm EST)

Class size is limited to 24 participants. This allows time for every participant to practice facilitating and receive coaching, give and receive feedback in small groups. Due to the focused nature of the workshop, participants are asked to participate fully in the three days without stepping out to take phone calls, meetings and other interruptions other than during scheduled breaks. Full participation in small groups enhances the learning experience for all.
