On Working at IA

I took Essential Facilitation in 1989, when it was a five day course; it changed the trajectory of my career and my life. The concepts and models I learned helped me to see a whole different way that people could collaborate. When I first joined Interaction Associates as a Senior Consultant in 1999, I felt like I had won the best prize possible, and I still feel that way today.
