What happens at the best group sessions that makes them productive, fulfilling, sometimes even magic? This beautiful, coherent, evocative card deck is the result of a multiyear collaboration among facilitators from diverse organizational backgrounds. It can be used for learning, planning, debriefing, and in the moment of a meeting for extra support. Amazing new resource.
