Post-Training Coaching

Most participants wish they had more time to explore the key concepts of networks and network weaving! MSG offers one-on-one or team-coaching sessions following the session. Interested persons or teams can sign up for a set number of hours (1 or more) of virtual or on-site coaching to learn more, clarify learning, or dig deeper into areas of network functioning.

On-Site Training

MSG staff and key partners will come to you and your team to deepen your knowledge of Getting (and Keeping) Community at the Table. We will tailor the day to meet your needs and can offer half-day, full-day or multiple day learning experiences for your team, company or community. This exciting and highly engaging training will open up the hidden network weavers in your group and give your team a clear set of next steps before the training is complete.
