    Book Launch Workshop Series:

    Discovering the Process Consulting Approach

    How can listening helping learning impact how you communicate?

    June 22nd @ 12pm CT

    Part 1 in a 4 Workshop Series!


    The power of process consulting is found in the flywheel of communication and bridging the gap between the acts of listening, helping, and learning.


    With Mark L. Vincent's new book releasing in June, listening helping learning: Core Competencies of Process Consulting, we are excited to offer this exclusive workshop series focused on understanding and tackling the process consulting approach.


    During this workshop you'll discover how to:

    • Keep a process going over time.
    • Use the flywheel of communication.
    • Leverage listening, helping, and learning to feed into each other.
    • Build and maintain a process so it becomes a part of a culture.


    Cost:
     Free


    “What self-proclaimed experts repeatedly fail to understand is that it was the process that made their strategy successful:

    Armed with the right reasons,
    the right people figured it out
    with the right insight
    at the right place
    at the right time
    with the right approach.

    Remove any one of these factors from the recipe and even the most sophisticated or exciting method struggles to find success. If each element is present, even the most rudimentary method can take an organization forward."

    - Mark L. Vincent & Kim Stezala
