Event description


Join this unique MasterClass with Stephen Gilligan:

Master Your Inner Game of Facilitation and Unleash Your Generativity

What you will learn and experience:

In this MasterClass you will learn from one of the best in Generative Facilitation.

Stephen Gilligan has been one of the pioneers in bringing forward a new generation of generative change work that focuses on how to use yourself as most effective tool for transformational change. With over 30 years of in-depth experience, he helps people to activate their full creativity and achieve extraordinary performance in work and life. He does so by integrating mindfulness and somatic-based consciousness with systemic work.

For this unique MasterClass we co-created a new program in which you will learn how to master your inner game to become more effective in the outer game as a facilitator, leader, changemaker, coach, and consultant such as to:

  • Unleash creativity in yourself and in your work with groups.

  • Improve the quality of your presence and awareness.

  • Stay open and connected even when the times get rough.

  • Transform obstacles into opportunities for yourself and others.

  • Strengthen your inner ground to hold difficult thoughts and feelings along the way.

  • Connect with your deeper intention of what you want to create in your life and activate the necessary resources to get there.

  • Crafting and sustaining generative relationships – both with yourself and others.

  • Leverage the wisdom of the learning community on how to best facilitate profound change and innovation in groups.

The MasterClass allows for both a personal and a collective learning journey. It emphasizes concrete experience, practical applications, deep reflection, and exploration of how to transfer insights to your own facilitation practice.

Become a part of the Generative Facilitation Learning Community by meeting other inspiring facilitators and engaging in peer coaching and learning with inspiration, compassion, and encouragement.
