I'm eager to go and share what we've been learning at the Future Services Institute in the last year about systems' change and harvesting. I also was asked to share my own research about Art of Hosting. While documents can be found in my Library on this web page, I would draw particular attention to:
1) Descriptive report to the Art of Hosting community about what 3-day training workshop participants understand and do (2012);
2) A theory-building, scholarly peer reviewed article about how facilitators' learn based on Art of Hosting trainings (2014);
3) Another theory-building article forthcoming this month in the Journal of Public Deliberation. I'm particularly proud of this piece because it helps give some language to the way in which skillful facilitators piece together and adjust the elements of engagement. The manuscript version of that article is available here.
The peer-learning environment of the Art of Hosting community makes me eager to engage with others committed to working to improve innovation in the public arena.
