Facilitating Group Work

“There are seminars and lectures and tutorials — and then there is the experience of learning about shared leadership by the the team at Global Round Table Leadership. It’s, well, magic, is the word that comes to mind. When a room full of people practice listening with their whole brains and hearts, when we understand that leadership comes from anywhere and in all shapes and sizes, when the contours of a new understanding of how to be better all together come into focus, that’s when a new way of being and leading in the world becomes possible. But you won’t know that until you get in the room with Global Round Table Leadership.”
— Allison Fine, guide and thought leader in the "social media revolution"

About Lori Hanau

Lori Hanau is one of the most skilled facilitators I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is an attentive and thoughtful listener, a patient and kind sounding board, and a brilliant processor. She is able to “hear” what hasn’t been said and make space for what needs to be said. She is truly gifted in the art of facilitation.
— Marcella Runnell Hall, NYU Center for Spiritual Life
Lori is extremely skilled at uncovering each person’s unique gifts and insights. She’s a natural at getting people engaged, connected and inspired, constantly practicing the art of what’s possible.
