I was the first employee under the talented partnership of Eugene Eric Kim and Kristin Cobble at Groupaya. Groupaya helps groups — be they teams, organizations, networks, or nations — more skillfully work together to create their desired future.
I had the opportunity to consult on extensive engagements with a diversity of clients. We designed participatory culture change experiments for large corporations, helped new start-ups align and activate around strategies, and facilitated a multi-stakeholder engagement around the future of California’s water supply.
I learned a tremendous amount with and from our clients around how to design engagements that help activate groups to reach their collective potential. But I learned even more from Eugene Eric Kim and Kritin Cobble in the work we did setting up Groupaya, trying to practice what we preach to be a learning, adaptive, flexible organization that helps bring the world alive.
