In Part 1, you learned the “Messy Middle” framework — how and why to take the leap from a model that no longer works (buh-bye, history!) towards brighter futures. In this workshop, we double-down and talk about how to recruit and build a team that can run effective pilots, evaluate success, and build momentum.

Facilitated by Rebecca Ryan, APF.

This workshop is part of a four-part series designed for leaders and managers who are ready to take the leap: to question their pre-pandemic assumptions and values, imagine a more sustainable and just future, and build the processes, teams, and innovations to bridge the gap.
