Develop your facilitation skills experientially at a Zenergy Global Master Class.
Zenergy Global Master Classes are events for experienced group Facilitators and focus on developing advanced skills in facilitation.
Specific aspects of facilitation are identified by each of the class participants. Each participant works on their own self identified ‘leading edge’. They receive coaching from the programme leader, and with the assistance of the group, to take their facilitation towards mastering these ‘leading edges’.
These ‘leading edges’ are brought to the Master Class and studied in-depth. As a result of this flexibility, participants create their own definition of mastery and work towards it with expert support. Senior Zenergy programme leaders work alongside each participant coaching them as they facilitate the group. Master Class participants are also given the opportunity to coach one another.
Zenergy Global has delivered over 100 Master Classes with facilitators working in many countries around the world.
Aspects of facilitation chosen by participants may include:
- Expanding group consciousness
- Presence and presencing
- Generating collective intelligence
- Facilitated storytelling
- Working in the moment / improvisation
- Self Organising Networks and Groups (SONG’s)
- Generating social change towards a sustainable world
- Working with energy
- Working with conflict
- Analysis of group process
- Designing organisational interventions
- Blended realities – f2f and online
- Designing powerful follow-up
- Project, process and workshop design
- Evaluation and assessment
Zenergy Global Master Classes take place within an environment of powerful presence and collective inquiry. Knowledge is generated within a context of a specific purpose which allows for mastery to be accessed directly, from the unknown.
This co-created new knowledge immediately informs each participating facilitator’s work. In addition, it is also integrated into the other modules of the Zenergy Diploma of Facilitation. In this way the work of Zenergy is constantly in development as participative action research.
Two Master Classes are required modules towards the completion of the Zenergy Diploma in Facilitation. Stage One; The Art of Facilitation and Stage Two; The Essence of Facilitation are prerequisites for attending the Masterclasses.
Zenergy programmes are based on many years of experience and research in the area of co-operative technology. This is explored and discussed in the books written by Dale Hunter and her colleagues.

Comments from participants
“It’s been one of the most exciting, challenging, transformational journeys I’ve ever been on.”
Greg Menendez (BrandEcology)
“What I found valuable was the honouring and respect; the deeper unspoken work of a facilitator; being challenged respectfully and the aroha.”
“What I found valuable was the energy of the group and access to the expanded consciousness; commitment of individuals; diversity of culture and expression; music, dance, play; speed, velocity, rhythm.”
Hadyn Olsen (www.wave.org.nz)
“What I found valuable was the diversity of the participants…the space that was made available to explore the learnings.”
“Being able to cement my leading edge and to live in it and know that I can claim and own the greatness of me.”
