Event Garde is a professional development consulting firm committed to lifelong learning—for ourselves, our community and those who attend the meetings we facilitate—believing in its ability to create well-connected leaders and to foster performance improvement.

Our work and relationships are guided by seven core values 

Just as Event Garde is committed to helping our clients identify and carry out their core values, our team worked to develop consensus around shared Event Garde core values. The team participated in a facilitated discussion to help brainstorm and develop alignment on the core values we want to hold as a high-performing, virtual team. We utilize these shared values as our foundation for how we work with one another, our partners, and our clients.

FacilitateMI: ACTion CARDS (Action Created Together)

12/11/2019

9:00-10:30 AM EST

MSAE Office - East Lansing, MI

Descripton: Imagine this: Yet another meeting or conference call is convened to discuss the same topics that have been on the table for months with no decisions and no actionable next steps. This time can be different. About a year ago, Lindsay and Aaron developed a colorful deck of ACTion CARDS. Following the simple instructions, and leveraging the focused conversation approach, lead just about any discussion using the pre-populated questions. What results is: recognition of and participation by all group members; increased diversity of thought; a safe space for all to share their unique perspectives; engagement of untapped team expertise; and fruitful conversation, as well as identification of actionable next steps.

Facilitator: Lindsay Gross s an experienced meeting facilitator with over a decade of experience working with multidisciplinary groups, assisting them with goal setting/action planning, and creating an engaging environment that allows for consensus building. She has worked with professionals from both the public and private sector to help them work towards gaining common vision and achieve their goals. Lindsay is known for working with challenging groups to conduct needs assessments, system’s analysis and work together to co-create actionable recommendations for improvement. Lindsay is also an experienced public speaker and trainer, presenting at national conferences on a variety of topics related to overall system change and how to engage with communities.
