Tackling complex challenges through effective collaboration:

a 2-day experiential learning lab

Central London: March & September 2020

What participants of the last lab said:

“Recently, it became apparent to me that despite having done facilitation work in many areas of my career, I had not actually taken any formal training. Reaching out to my coach, I asked for recommendations of facilitation training – he suggested Meeting Magic. After a call to discuss an up and coming workshop on collaboration, and after looking into several other possibilities, I chose Meeting Magic – primarily because of the focus on experiential learning and reflection.

I came into the two-day course expecting some fairly basic interactions, some theory, and maybe some tools and resources. What I got was so much more than that. Katherine and Kenda are consummate professionals in this field and that expertise is held lightly, confidently, but also openly. They guided a small group of strangers through four fascinating experiences that challenged assumptions and allowed spaces for reflection, learning and practice. I am tempted to say so much more, but what I will say is that such training is rarely so productive and have such an influence on future professional practice. I would highly recommend Meeting Magic to almost any working professional from any level.”

Dave Yates, Strategy and Change Manager (Collaboration), The Scouts AND Girlguiding

„I really appreciate Katherine and Kenda´s approach to facilitating meetings and making them more meaningful. They inspired me to adapt the meeting culture within our company and include new ideas in our corporate culture project. Besides this, the open learning lab was a perfect opportunity for exchanging thoughts and opinions with participants from different countries and companies.“

Getting together; working effectively

It is well known that groups of people can achieve more than individuals, hence the phrase ‘the whole is greater than the sum of the parts’.

The first step is to bring people together.

The second is to get them to work together, effectively. This doesn’t happen by chance:

it requires a collaborative mindset, skillset and toolset.

Are you:

  • tasked with bringing people together to affect change in your workplace?
  • a member of a community where it often feels like you’re pushing water uphill to get things done?
  • part of a team that seems ineffective or unable to find its power?
  • seeing the ineffectiveness of things that others don’t notice, and want to become skilled in helping them to see it too?
  • involved in anything that needs people to work well together to be successful & achieve results?

Then this is for you!

What to expect

A blend of practical experiments, theory input, group discussion & reflective practice in an environment of safety and challenge.

You will leave with a skill set and materials to enable you to better lead and participate in groups, wherever, whenever!
