Custom BEtreat design
A partnership process
Making a difference
Our focus is on making a difference. We work in that space between pushing our imagination about what’s possible and grounding it in what’s worked or not in the past.
Framing the issues
Half the challenge is framing – and reframing -the right issues. This includes getting the right voices to the table to talk about the things that they care about. It often means framing the issues across cultural, disciplinary, or institutional boundaries.
Monitoring the value
Build in ongoing feedback loops from the start of the process so you can monitor and learn from the value you are creating.
Custom BEtreat clients
A range of different
people and organizations
Reports are finished, presentations have been completed and jet lag has dissipated and I am finally able to say thank you and to let you know what an extraordinary experience the BEtreat was for me. It was unbelievably fantastic and you were both so generous and inspiring. I learned so much and feel quite liberated from a few personal and professional bumps and burns.
Thank you so much for a wonderful workshop, your amazing hospitality and your kindness. It was such a great experience for all.
I really hope we can get a new cohort to go through this next year as well.
Through our discussion and negotiation and sharing of ideas I can see a clear path. It has opened up a pathway to an exciting future. There was the theorietical and the imagining and then translating it into something practical. Ten hours spread over three days was about right for a private BEtreat.
A focus on value
We believe that our overlapping and different perspectives on social learning theory, conflict resolution, and simply getting things done have a synergy and a playfulness that bring about productive and innovative results. We welcome every opportunity to convene, to learn from and with different perspectives, and – ultimately – to learn to make a difference.
