How Freedom and Fairness is Delivered
Our Freedom and Fairness workshop brings a unique approach to personal and group development by combining four domains of knowledge and practice:
Adult Developmental Psychology
Advanced Communication Skills
This training is action learning based - meaning you learn by doing in a feedback rich environment. As such, the training is highly experiential and engages the group in dialogue and exercises intended to awaken understanding and capabilities of working with power dynamics, “us versus them” dynamics, emotional and relational dimensions, fear and unconscious biases, and techniques to support individual and group transformation.
This experience weaves in live demonstrations and unique “pointing out” instructions, making the subtle group dynamics more visible to everyone. Like a sports team reviewing the last play on the sidelines, you will have the opportunity to freeze frame and zoom in and out of the group dynamics.
Lastly, because this is a training environment you will have meaningful opportunities to practice facilitating the group (or a subset of the group) through different conversations and dynamics with the opportunity for real-time coaching and feedback from your lead trainer, coaches, and peers.
