Coaching & Facilitation
Organizing and conducting inclusive problem-solving that brings together researchers and practitioners takes significant effort and experience. We can support you to do this more efficiently and effectively. We provide coaching and facilitation on a per-tool basis using Toolkit360. For each Toolkit360 tool that you want support for, we coach you to apply it to your situation and facilitate each associated session. Toolkit360 coaching and facilitation cost $7,000 per tool or $77,000 for all twelve tools (plus any travel costs). Don’t know what tools to use for your situation?

We offer training workshops on how to do inclusive problem-solving using Toolkit360, as well as how to facilitate each of the individual Toolkit360 tools. We can provide workshops on group facilitation, visual thinking for problem-solving, and improv for integrating research and practice. Private workshops are conducted for $3,500 per day (plus any travel costs). We also run scheduled open-registration workshops online and in-person.

“The Impact360 Alliance is an exciting outgrowth of efforts by government, academic, business, and non-profit leaders who are passionate about improving society’s response and resilience in natural hazards. Having watched the idea grow from before it had a name, I am thrilled to see the reality it has become. I have no doubt this organization, and the fantastic people who support
will make a difference.” it,

“In the United States the work of disaster risk reduction will never be accomplished solely by the private sector, nor will it be a
production solely of the government. There is (and has for a very long time) been the need for interlocutors, experts who can bring scientists and other experts together with practitioners, policy makers, and citizens. It's work we all believe in, but balancing expertise with participation and representation (i.e. democracy) is hard, unrelenting work. I am confident that the Impact360 Alliance will be a crucial leader in this work.”

“In the summer of 2019, our natural hazards community had the chance to see Impact360 Alliance in action. Their use of graphic recording, storytelling, and other creative approaches to facilitate information sharing helped promote new conversations and connections between researchers and practitioners. This is how enduring change becomes possible.”

Experts in their field, and always ready to try new things, they took on new approaches, such as webinars, with ease, and made them an instant success. We greatly enjoyed the partnership and would welcome an opportunity to work with them again in the future."
