Info Session — The Art of Facilitation for Cooperative Groups


This will be a virtual information session about FIC’s upcoming 5-week online course, The Art of Facilitation for Cooperative Groups, starting on March 11, 2021. We’ll sit down with course instructor, Laird Schuab, to find out what the course is all about. You’ll be able to ask questions directly and learn if the course is a good fit for you. There’s sure to be lots of tips about how to facilitate teams, groups, and communities. Plus stories from Laird about his life and work as a consultant for intentional community projects nationwide. Looking forward to seeing you there!


Guest Speaker

Laird Schaub

Laird’s specialty is up-tempo inclusive meetings that engage the full range of human input, teaching groups to work creatively with conflict and diversity—all the while being ruthless about capturing as much product as possible. Laird lived for four decades at Sandhill Farm, an income-sharing rural community that he helped found. He also helped found the Foundation for Intentional Community, where he served as the main administrator for 28 years. In 1987 he created a self-insurance fund for healthcare among income-sharing communities called PEACH (Preservation of Equity Accessible for Community Health) that he ran for 22 years. In addition to his expertise in community living, he’s parlayed his passion for good process into a consulting business focused on cooperative group dynamics, styled CANBRIDGE (Consensus And Network Building for Resolving Impasse and Developing Group Effectiveness), since 1987.
