Lisa served on the Board of Directors of Bay Area Nonviolent Communication (BayNVC) for a number of years and is a consultant with the Center for Efficient Collaboration. She was the Executive Producer of the Morning Show on KPFA Radio, the oldest listener sponsored radio station in the world. In that role, she was responsible for helping to raise 20% of the station's annual budget by forging 15 people's wildly divergent viewpoints into a coherent program. What she learned from facilitating challenging editorial and station-wide meetings inspired her to collaborate with Miki Kashtan, BayNVC's co-founder, to create the curriculum for this Convergent Facilitation workshop. She uses Convergent Facilitation on a regular basis in all areas of her life – home, work, and activism – and looks forward to sharing what she's learned with you.
