Facilitating Meaningful Relationships

Our Facilitating Meaningful Relationships (FMR) program helps individuals build perspectives on working with key differences in human values, mind-sets and styles. This enables them to lead with authenticity and build respectful relationships with others in negotiating win-win outcomes in a principled manner

About the Program

All social systems face the challenge of leveraging diversity in the service of innovation breakthroughs, respectful communications and resilient relationships. Being authentic and building relationships within diverse social systems is an essential ability that one needs to lead groups to achieve productive outcomes.

The Facilitating Meaningful Relationships program is a collection of stimulating perspectives on how leaders at all levels can work effectively with different ways of thinking, learning and communicating. Leaders are challenged to appreciate and honour the different development stages team members may find themselves at as a person, or in relation to an organization or to society.

The Technology of Participation (ToP) facilitation methods are central to the pedagogical approach used in this program. ToP™ was pioneered by the Institute of Cultural Affairs, an international network focused on the development and application of social innovation methods for community and organizational development around the world.
