3 Brained Facilitator Workshop Report

Heart & Soul Team’s Facilitation Workshop, held on May 10, achieved its stated aim, judging by the statements of 2 attendees. Jill called the event ‘killer’ and Penelope called the workshop time ‘a powerful learning experience.’ The aim for the workshop, developed by workshop leaders Eva Montville, Bernard Leibov and Susan Jordan was “to design an event that develops collaborative leadership, in a way that’s experiential and transformational, so that groups can accomplish their purpose and our community becomes an evolutionary force in the world.”

The 3 Brains include the thinking brain, the feeling brain and the functional brain or, stated another way, the mind, the heart and the hands on experience. 20 participants, from as far away as Idyllwild, created an agenda of their own and practiced facilitating using techniques designed to bring understanding to collaborative groups and the 3 brains.
