#26 Adam Kahane – Facilitating Breakthrough

Cool Collaborations

Nov 23 2021 • 43 mins

For episode #26, I have the distinct pleasure of a conversation with Adam Kahane about his most recent book Facilitating Breakthrough: How to Remove Obstacles, Bridge Differences, and Move Forward Together. We discuss what Adam calls transformative facilitation and how its set of ‘shifts’ fit within collaboration.

Adam has published several books describing his thinking, approaches, and experiences from collaborating on significant issues all over the world. He is the Director of REOS Partners which is an “international social enterprise that helps people move forward together on their most important and intractable issues”.

Enjoy my conversation with Adam.

Some links to some of the things we discuss during this episode:

Adam Kahane and the others at Reos Partners do some interesting and amazing work. Check out their website for more information.

Your host for the Cool Collaborations podcast is Scott Millar. Scott is the principle of Collaboration Dynamics, where he often works as a "peacemaker" by gathering people with different experiences and values and helping them navigate beyond their differences to tackle complex problems together.
