Imagine a workshop that really inspires growth. Imagine spending part of a day with other awesome humans who are also interested in listening and sharing experiences and knowledge. This interactive workshop will provide insight, excitement and comic relief. You will walk away having laughed and learned about yourself. Open Space workshops are simple. While attending follow these simple principles:• Whoever comes are the right people• Whatever happens is the only thing that could have• Whenever it starts is the right time• When it’s over it’s over.• The Law of Two Feet, which states simply, if at any time you find yourself in any situation where you are neither learning nor contributing – use your two feet and move to someplace more to your liking. Inspired by Harrison Owens’ model of “Open Space” Questions- Contact Jeremy LeBlanc at 413-822-6895
