Listen in on what they have to say about taking our training!
"Learning to use Collab tools has dramatically increased my level of confidence in addressing complex situations in my organization and with our clients and partners. Where before I had vague intuitions and far more desire than knowledge about democratic processes, now I can competently assess trouble spots, suggest processes that address people’s needs for participation as well as structure, and use these processes myself to make concrete progress."
Noemi Giszpenc, Level I Graduate 2017
Executive Director, Cooperative Development Institute
"it’s been really liberating, professionally, to recognize that tensions are a natural part of teams; that they really just stem from the human experience of being in community."
Erica Buswell, Level I Graduate 2018
VP of Programs, Maine Farmland Trust
"It was definitely a great learning experience that I've enjoyed. Lots of great tools that are beneficial to my work and organisation."
Omar Senhaji, Level I Graduate 2018

"It was so good to find a real tool to support teams to be more open, fast, and transparent. The training really engaged me!"
Cristina Vela, Level I Graduate 2018
Business Consultant, NextYou
"Collab has been transformational! Not only am I more conscious now of the implicit power dynamics in my teams and organizations, but I have the tools to make them explicit and to help transform them. Collab has filled a lot of gaps in my knowledge and practice of collaborative leadership and has immediately resulted in tangible positive outcomes for me and my teams."
Kristen Del Simone, Level I Graduate 2018
"The Collab course (Level I) has really broaden my horizon in the space of organizational management for effectiveness and efficiency. I have begun implementing the Standard Meeting Practice with my team, and every one seems to have found the "Aha" moment in their professional journey."
Francis Ghunney, Level I Graduate 2018
"My participation in Level I happened just at the right time and with the right people. The content made both the way I organise myself and my relationship to others more harmonious. I am a facilitator in soft skills, dialogue, co-creation and collaborative leadership and Level I has helped me make the content of what I deliver even more integrated and relevant."
Atikah Lorot, Level I Graduate 2018
