Many years ago my curiosity and passion were ignited around how we might be, meet and work together in a different way. From that journey I’ve found my place in this world as a participatory process designer and facilitator, hosting and harvesting conversations that matter. I work with organizations, communities and individuals to invite collaboration, facilitate participatory gatherings, and harvest the fruits of those conversations for sustainable progress. I create space for people to turn towards each other for meaningful conversation, where all voices are welcomed and heard. My work happens in meetings, gatherings, conferences and more, designing circle-based participatory dialogue processes to create a container for leadership and wise action to emerge. I live on the beautiful west coast of BC with my sweetie and our great Dane Maya, and I'm so glad to be here with the Group Works community!

It was through Sue Woerhlin, Professor, and Wonderful Person, at Antioch University Seattle, from whomI learned about this wonderful meeting facilitation tool. I will be using the cards to facilitate a new Spanish conversation group at a local retirement community to start up April 16, 2015. The group is for individuals who love the Spanish language, and have an affinity for the peoples/countries where Spanish is spoken, which, of course, includes the U.S.! I hope to facilitate lively and enjoyable conversations in Spanish where folks can feel relaxed, enthused and enjoy ownership in the way in which our group evolves. Thanks! so much for creating these cards. Mil gracias! ~ Dolores

I don't know who I am but I do like to experiment, observe truth and see the huge beauty and possibility in most any situation. It's pretty clear to me that collective knowledge-building is a beautiful thing and that so many things where people think: "I can't" can easily be turned to "we can." I coach and facilitate and I guess my picture of an ideal life would be having one Co-Sensing Style Action Learning Coaching session a day or Dynamic Stillness Craniosacral or a Piano Portrait (where the piano is a voice in the dialogue). I'm constantly seeing the possibility that our medicine just might come from our loves and our passions. It might just be that simple. I'd like to share that little secret with others, directly, through experience.

I started at Vanderbilt University working with Matt Taylor at a center dedicated to healthcare reform using the medical center as a test-bed. It was divine! And, we co-created electronic medical record, on-line physician ordering and much more. I moved to Switzerland after that and was the co-founder/founding President of The Value Web, a social business/association for ~ 35 practitioners who come together to change the way decisions are made in important gatherings.

Nancy Seibel

I'm a life coach drawing upon my 30+ years of experience in nonprofit child and family services to coach human service professionals at transition points in life and career. This involves both individual and group work. I also provide early childhood consultation and coaching, facilitating meetings, training, and writing on topics related to infants, toddlers and their families. I'm a masters-degreed Nationally Certified Counselor, a Board Certified Coach, an avid though not very fast bicyclist and a lover of creative approaches to thinking, working and living.

Nicole Bienfang

I am an entrepreneur, interdisciplinary thinker, attention economist, activist advocate, inventor, consultant, social artist, cultural creative & social architect. I've dedicated my life to increasing the impact social change makers have on society. Both my life and professional experiences have afforded me the opportunity to gain the insight of how a sense of community can be formed anywhere in various ways. With that knowledge I strive to help globally shift the current paradigm we all live in to a new one that benefits us all, as well as the planet. I'm often found building bridges between niche groups of social change movements, and helping translate between thought leaders found within them. My solution-centered thinking,tenacious and straightford style has garnered respect internationally having many people seek me out for counsel and mentorship. Seeing that there was a significant need for information and instruction regarding founding and starting social good type programming, movements, and intentional communities I took part in the development of The Transition (www.thetransition.org) creating a hub where like-minded proactive people could unify their good work efforts and exchange experiences from the trenches. I'm a research driven, lifelong learner, who uses that knowledge to build stronger relationships among communities and with individuals from around the world.

Originally I came across pattern language (online) through Doug Schuler. I was taught more (online) by Helmut Leitner, and then via F2F session at London Knowledge Lab led by Yishay Mor. When Yishay was preparing to co-edit a pattern language book (related to an area of education I knew about) he sent out a call for contributions saying the contributors would be shepherded regarding the pattern language side of things. This was how I learned more. I am interested in how pattern language can help me (and people in my networks) to share insights with each other despite coming from very different areas of interest.

At this point in my life I work in Boston in an academic medical center doing business process analysis, for want of a description. I think in systems and when I learn about something I need to find a way to learn it from both outside in and inside out. In my work I am very interested in understanding how interpersonal and organizational factors, workflow processes, and software systems align ( or not! ) to support a larger vision of the organization. In my non-work time I walk with my dogs and my wife, talk abstract and landscape photographs, do small home improvement projects and am getting more involved in the "maker" community.

Community Organizer and Cohousing Coach, co-creating Cohousing California and East Bay Cohousing, building on the deck to create Cohousing Cards, selections with additional guidance specific for these intentional neighborhoods. I love to visit places and do workshops with the cards and help people think about them in new ways (including just figuring out what to do with the cards). As of early 2017, I believe I've done the most reselling of decks, bringing them to conferences and communities in the course of my travels. I'm planning on doing some conference calls and webinars to explore applications of the cards.

I am a group facilitator and certified coach. I live in Melbourne, on the south-east coast of Australia. I am very interested (excited really) about how we construct our reality and how we hold our selves and our perceptions in place by non-verbal, non-cognitive, assumptive patterns and schemas. There seem to be complementary sets of dynamics including safety-reactivity-attachment alongside expansion-creativity-emergence. Maybe we can only know about them by pausing-doing-reflecting-iterating-not knowing... in some right-seeming jumble that orders itself and us.

I have been blessed for many years with a calling supporting groups to function well, which is fulfilled through teaching, facilitation, and organizational design. I work primarily with groups in my geographic region. I founded the Group Pattern Language Project in 2008, and since publication in 2011 have been joyfully watching it make its way around the world. I think the most powerful implementation of the Group Works deck happens when organizations integrate it into their day-to-day operations and culture. As of this writing (early 2017), i am passionate about possibilities arising from Laloux's insights into "teal" organizations, and am actively seeking colleagues and playmates in that realm.

I was an active supplier in the OEM and Industry Business and developped different fastening solutions in the production process of these companies. Our new products required a high understandig of the customer's needs and potential benefits. This comes from efficient group work between supplier and customer, high trust and open mind. The same I experienced in the different market entrance tasks in many countries with our organization. International project management in medical equipment devices needs to have also collective wisdom.of all participants for succesful completion on both sides. Today I`m retired and still active in creating a partizipatory leadership in complex environment and in conflict resolution as a official certified mediator and a AoH practicioner, I'm interested to take advantage from your high level experience in partizipatory group works and I would like to apply this valuable deck and cards.
