High Impact Facilitation

We believe it is through powerful, multi-actor conversations and collaborations that ambitious social and climate justice goals are realized.

Successful meetings tap into the collective intelligence of a group, reshape how a problem is perceived, influence perspectives on how to affect change, and help find new ways of joining forces. They lead to new levels of strategic alignment and collective action across individuals, organizations, movements and sectors.

Our High Impact Facilitator Program develops advanced-level competencies in facilitation for collective action and impact. Participants work to realize personal developmental goals and demonstrate newly acquired facilitation capacities.

Meetings have a bad reputation, and let’s face it, there’s reason for that. Amis Boersma became a facilitator as a result of those very thoughts and feelings.

In the following interview, I speak with Spring Strategies associate Amis Boersma about how to facilitate meetings that are dynamic, meaningful and impactful.
