Event Details

PATH is a process in which a facilitator and a graphic facilitator work with a focal person (or organization or team) and their supporters to create a vision of the best possible future, out of which comes a plan that is always “positive” and “possible,” understood by all and no longer mysterious or scary.  By the end of the PATH event the focal person or group has communicated where they want to go, what and who they need to support their journey, and how this part of their lives will be part of a bigger future.   Those who care about them often say they feel clear, inspired and hopeful afterwards, and get to take on action oriented roles.  A PATH is a great tool to bring a network together.  

What a PATH is: 

•powerful and empowering

•practical and dream-based

•communal and individualised

•a great way to bring a support network together

•a great way to get on the same page


What PATH is not:

•a cookie cutter approach 

•a way to force someone to be part of your plan for them


•Individuals who are at a time in their lives when a creative, inspired approach feels right

•facilitators looking for a more person centred method of planning they can use in a variety of situations

•families who want to work together

•friends who want to make a difference

•committed employers 

•agency leaders wanting to know what’s optimal so they can do their best work 


Shelley and Aaron, together and with other partners, have been doing PATHs for individuals, organizations and teams for more than 20 years and it is still a process that surprises and delights them as they watch individuals who think they hate “planning” come to life and families get excited about the future.
