GRuB Board member, Steve Byers and a team of skilled practitioners, are offering a 3 day Art of Participatory Leadership training in 2017. It’s an intensive 3-day experience where you will practice simple yet powerful approaches for designing & hosting powerful conversations & meetings that change how you change. It’s an effective way of harnessing the collective wisdom & self-organizing capacity of groups.

Participatory Leadership means better decision-making, more efficient and effective capacity-building, & greater ability to quickly respond to opportunity, challenge & change. People get empowered & learn how to guide meetings to more desirable & supported outcomes. Learn models such as The Circle Way, World Café, Open Space Technology, ProAction Café, storytelling & more. These methods deeply enhance not only what you know, but what you will create as you grow your leadership.

Mallorie Shelmer, GRuB alum, Pollination Assistant & Para-Educator for GRuB Tumwater Fresh Program brings the skills that she learned through the training into the classroom. "I most often use the techniques when I feel stuck moving a group forward about an idea. The tools help individuals give clear input even when there are strong differing perspectives which creates more opportunities for learning in the group."
Early bird registration deadline is December 15! If you’d like more information. contact Steve at 360 259-0340 or
