TRAINING CLASSES

Dynamic Community Governance is a consent-based decision making process for local businesses and community organizations. Elegantly simple, Dynamic Community Governance is a profound change from standard operating procedure.  This progressive model promotes transparent communication, equivalency, and consent which are pivotal elements of effective and efficient organizational meetings.  

John and Aileen offer highly interactive and engaging trainings, tailored to each organization’s particular needs. The target audience is: the curious, the forward-thinking, the tired of business-as-usual; people who want to see their organizations truly be inclusive, engaging, productive and fun!

We look forward to hearing  from you. Ask us about 1:1 consultations and customized workshops, classes and trainings for your group.

Below is a listing of our ongoing class offerings. During the pandemic, we are offering the trainings virtually. Contact Aileen to arrange a training.
