The Developmental Cafe: An Invitation to Global Webchats

Action Inquiry Associates, in partnership with AR+ ActionResearchPlus, invite you to join us in online developmental capacity building web-chats. Designed for change agents seeking to address the big (and related small) issues of our time, we seek to discuss and grow the “action logic” adult development paradigm for those of us who work with the “wicked problems” we confront.

We bring a practical and scholarly approach so that participants are left after each web chat with: a deeper understanding of development; a sense of the value of being part of a community of inquiry/practice; a few useful ideas; and application “homework” that will enrich your coaching and change efforts before the next web chat.

Our first six web chats are intended as an experiment (and priced accordingly) so that we may learn together what our developmental community of inquiry/practice needs for our own development. To ensure continuity of the community of inquiry/practice, seats are limited (<25) to those who register for the series of six.

Suggested donation: $500 for all six web chats. Scholarships available upon request.
