Group Facilitation / Moderation
I'm an experienced small group facilitator that works with Entrepreneur Organization (EO) Forums, Organizational Boards and Peer-Groups to create deeper and more meaningful gatherings.
In my 18+ years as an entrepreneur and former member of EO, I've grown companies, lead boards and built community groups. I understand what it means to lead, and have empathy for the challenges leaders face.
In terms of style, I'm more about going deep and building stronger connections. Using tools and techniques I encourage everyone to speak up while also holding space for those who tend to be quiet and reserved. Ultimately I'm here for you and your group. Let's chat to see if what I provide would be a good fit for your needs or not.
I'm also happy to give recommendations to others whom I feel would be a better match.
George offered to facilitate our non-profit board retreat. Within a week of his accepting the contract, the Board received surprising and ground-shaking news which added complexity to the already tenuous and fractured board dynamics. Many of us were uncertain and reticent at best and actively frustrated and concerned at worst leading up to the morning of the retreat. But George structured an excellent agenda, created space to clear the "pink elephants" early, intervened artistically, and let the conversation ride in moments expertly. By the end of the first day, some incredibly difficult decisions had been made with clear consensus, and by the end of Day 2, the board was closer than it had been in years. George's skills were not only up to the considerable task, but were vital in setting us up brilliantly for our audacious 10-year vision. I can't compliment his work highly enough.
George is master of bringing groups together, helping navigate difficult conversations, and uniting teams to emerge stronger. His process and skill builds trust and is one of the most effective facilitators I know. So grateful to have his guidance. You could tell we were in the hands of a master.
