Of course there are moral reasons for collaboration and inclusive decision making, yet in this interactive workshop Craig Freshley will explain the practical benefits for helping all voices be heard. And he’s going to teach us how to do it. By telling stories and explaining techniques, Craig will equip you and inspire you to help your own group make decisions together efficiently. Handouts and other resources will be provided.

Tell us a little about you! What is a challenge you face when making group decisions? Is there a technique you use that you've found especially helpful? Would you be willing to be on camera (live), discussing this challenge with Craig? Please note your interest in the webinar sign-up form! We're looking for challenges that Craig can address during the webinar AND we're looking for volunteers willing to talk about their challenges/techniques live.
