The PACE of Relationship


How often do you leave a conversation knowing you didn’t say what you really wanted to say to someone?  Or paradoxically, that you said too much?  Your ability to create the best moment-to-moment has a big impact on how you coach, lead, and relate to others.  It’s tempting to look for a magical formula of tips and techniques for bringing your best to your relationships, but in reality it’s your PACE (Presence, Authenticity, Creativity, and Empathy) that matters most. Whether you are a manager, internal OD professional or external consultant, facilitation skills are crucial to your success.

Most experienced facilitators know firsthand the importance of striking a balance between moving toward outcomes and staying present to group dynamics as they unfold.  Yet too often it’s easy to tip the scales one way or the other either getting stuck in process or moving too quickly and stepping over important information.  During this interactive meeting, you will increase your capacity to be more effective at navigating this tension.



Join Nina Simonds, PCC for The PACE of Relationship where you will:

• Explore the elements of PACE and how they apply to your work and relationships;
• Discuss barriers to sharing your truth with others;
• Learn strategies for developing presence;
• Walk away with a tool for assessing your strengths and learning edges in every conversation.
