Making the Most of Working with Whole Person Process Facilitation

The development goal for this learning module is to expand the capacity and knowledge of leaders and facilitators to get the most from their work with Whole Person Process Facilitation.

Working with the Subtleties of WPPF

When you take leadership for using Whole Person Process Facilitation (WPPF) in your life and work, it is valuable to have a deeper understanding of working with the subtilties of WPPF. Rachel Bolton and Birgitt Williams are taking leadership for the plan, design, and facilitation of the learning module. You are invited to take your leadership to give yourself the gift of a learning journey that will benefit your life as well as your work in expansive yet results-oriented ways. As well as registering, you will need to clear a week in your calendar for the purpose of devoting that week to yourself and your learning.

Understanding Whole Person Process Facilitation through Many Lenses

  • Developing an understanding of the dynamics of using an interactive participatory method
