The Convergent Facilitation (CF) Intensive offers a comprehensive introduction to collaborative decision making. We invite you to learn how to effectively arrive at group decisions that everyone can accept as their own. The skills you acquire will help you make group decisions more easily and effectively at home, in your work, and in your communities. This is an opportunity to learn the basics of the CF process and principles or deepen your practice, no prior experience with CF is needed.

Magda: My passion is supporting people in mutual understanding and working out solutions that work for everyone through integration of different perspectives. There is no such a subject at school. Consciously I have learnt these skills since 2008, when I got to know Nonviolent Communication (NVC). My 3 areas of focus are: supporting people in conflict, collaborative decision making and needs-based resource sharing. I offer coaching sessions, mediations, workshops and facilitate meetings. I live in Warsaw, Poland. I’m a parent of young kids. I enjoy meeting and working with people from all over the world and being active outside in nature. I hold a PhD in geography. www.strefaporozumienia.pl
Roni: I advocate for personal empowerment and social change through coaching, teaching, consulting, and activism. I enjoy sharing my passion and insights in diverse settings and scales, from small groups to large organizations. My life journey includes two decades of consulting focused on transforming collaboration practices, extensive work in technology projects and design, and an interdisciplinary degree in Psychology, Sociology, and Gender Studies. I offer fun and interactive workshops on topics ranging from process improvement and project planning to nonviolence, relationships, and sexual health. At other times, I may be found on the dance floor, at the beach, cuddling, playing games, engaging in deep conversations, writing an unpublished blog, and plotting global liberation. www.sundragonrising.com
