Bringing groups and teams together across geographies to connect, create meaning and plan for committed action can feel like a hollow echo of our face to face engagements. It doesn’t need to. Through dynamic audio, video and visual platforms, key principles of participation are having a breakthrough moment in a virtual world.


Building on the gifts of access and time flexibility that virtual engagements allow for, and staying true to core concepts of profound respect and meaningful interaction embedded in group facilitation methods, Alisa can help design virtual meetings to achieve whatever your groups objectives may be. Whether those engagements are single meetings facilitated live over Zoom and /or Google Suite format, a series of meetings that build a longer learning journey for an intact group, a combination of asynchronous and live sessions that utilize a visual platform such as Mural or Miro – the opportunity to feel excited and challenged into a productive outcome is still available.


As we collectively transition to more regular artful engagement of our participants in online spaces. Much of the training we’ve traditionally offered in group facilitation is now available online. Find and register for ToP Training Online at the ToP Training website.
