Learning to Work with Whole Person Process Facilitation

16 - 18 October  2019 – Heeze, The Netherlands



Whole Person Process Facilitation (WPPF) is the name given to a highly dynamic, participative meeting methodology designed to help people interact from their whole being - mental, spiritual, emotional, physical. These meetings are designed to integrate the wisdom of the group as well the individual. A WPPF meeting delivers both powerful short and long term results. Energy, ideas and discussion are transformed into constructive action, with participants embracing responsibility and leadership around the topic at hand, be that a product, concept, question or strategy. In the longer term, by using the WPPF meeting methodology, team members become increasingly engaged, creative and open. Meeting this way engenders resilience among people and teams in dealing with the  dynamics of change from both within and outside organizations. 

In this 3 day training you will learn how to use meetings as a seriously effective way to utilize all of the human capacity in an organization. You will discover not only how to prepare, run and follow up on meetings in a new way, but will also learn to build your own capacity to run a WPPF meeting. After the training you will have access to a peer-to-peer mentoring circle for ongoing learning.

Participants of WPPF meetings have described them as “efficient, effective and highly productive”; “stimulating maximum participation”; “generating high levels of creativity”;“enabling teams and leadership to emerge”; “facilitating communication and learning”; “improving staff morale”.

WPPF helps your meetings deliver more by embracing the wisdom, capacities, talents and diversities of a group. Whether meeting in person or online, this methodology works effectively in meetings with one or one hundred people. WPPF is a module of the Genuine Contact™ Program which develops a culture for extraordinary leadership as the path for organizational success.



Doris Gottlieb (The Netherlands), Thomas Herrmann (Sweden), and Anna Caroline Türk (Germany) are joining forces to offer this training. They are highly dedicated to this approach and invest much of their energy in the development of the Genuine Contact Program and have worked closely with Birgitt and Ward Williams, founders of the Genuine Contact Program, for almost two decades.

Working together, they each bring their own specific strengths, expertise and practical insights, to provide you with a rich and varied learning experience. They teach in English, Swedish, German, Dutch, and Spanish.

As consultants they have assisted organizations such as Volvo, Etsy, World Wildlife Fund, Soundcloud, City of Gothenburg, Stena Line and the Karolinska Institute, Emancipator, Rotterdam School of Management - Erasmus University, Sounds of Change, in learning and applying the Genuine Contact approach to increase organizational success.
