FORUMS & FACILITATION >  A Moderated Forum is a highly-confidential peer-to-peer meeting with ground rules based on Gestalt Theory (the whole is more than the sum of its parts). A structured Forum Training or facilitated meeting enables members of a group to present personal or business issues in a dynamic but trusted environment. Sharing real-world experiences, a properly structured forum helps individuals and organizations develop best practices for accelerated results. An experienced facilitator such as Cliff and his world-class training peers can help anyone from Students, Families, and Teachers, to Boards, Committees, Start-Ups, and Entrepreneurs. Forum Training & Facilitation can be done with half-full-or-multi-day retreats, customized for a truly unique learning experience.
