About Colibri

Graphic Facilitation and Leadership Coaching

Based in Seattle, with local, national and international clients, Colibri Facilitation is a facilitation and leadership coaching company that helps large systems, organizations and individuals align to vision and strategy.

Images and items of interest are drawn on a whiteboard, marker-wall or digital screen as they emerge in discussion, in order to capture your idea development accurately. Our ink or digital graphic renderings help your group express and synthesize information, tell a story or map future actions.

Whether we work with individuals, organizations or communities, we listen deeply to your values and visions and support you to identify opportunities to help your reach your full potential.

My facilitation work stimulates your faith in your own creativity, yes, in one form or another all people are creative. Through helping you suspend judgment, asking penetrating questions.

Through coaching, people can see what’s possible and create new realities for themselves.

My signature approach is the use of graphic facilitation to capture your ideas on large sheets of paper or on my digital tablet in real time. The visual display of information is used to help you see the whole picture, make connections between disparate pieces of information and to develop a path forward.
