IAF EME Facilitation Insights


Join us on February 3rd, when John Varney expands on his book, “Leadership as meaning-Making – Take the Hero’s Journey to Transformation”. Based on his experience over 40 years, when he founded and ran the Centre for Management Creativity and its residential centre at High Trenhouse, he asks, “Is the developmental dimension of facilitation critical to the future of humanity?”
