What is Facilitating Cultural Change and Why Should I Do It?
Facilitating Cultural Change (FCC) is an advanced 5 day in-person institute for practitioners of cultural, systemic, and transformational change towards the common good.
Many of us who work towards change in the world are seeking a practical set of tools to support our ability to make that change.
FCC will equip you with a framework and skills to make lasting change towards your broader goals. FCC will give you access to expert practitioners, rigorous materials, a cohort of new colleagues and relationships, and the opportunity to reflect on your own experiences in new ways.
When you leave FCC, you will be able to apply new skills and tools to a broad and diverse range of organizations, institutions, networks, and social movements. FCC will help you to become a more confident, more effective, and more self-aware leader grounded in your deeper purpose and path.
