And then, what is your responsibility for fulfilling that intention?

I’m always looking for new or different ways to think about my work - since I am in a coordination role it’s a bit isolating so I’m here to listen and learn!
John Sanderson

Intention: Grow my facilitation skills. Attention: Pay attention to novel, nuanced approaches to and ways of thinking about facilitation. Responsibility: stay focus on Laura and our shared dialogue.
Greg Newman

Thanks Laura for the artist concept... my intention is to learn more about collaborative conservation facilitation - pay attention to the recommendations made - responsible perhaps for integrating these into our citizen science platform

I’m always learning and growing as a facilitator and someone who trains facilitators - AND I wanted to meet you… I am staying fully present and contributing when I can - and will bring any valuable takeaways into my work and into the Collaboration Program in Natural Resources that I direct
Leslie Forman

I’m here to learn from Laura! I am a facilitator and researcher but work in a different space (tech) and I’m inspired by learning from different fields, especially those that call for different types of stakeholder engagement, timeframes, focus, etc.
John Rizza

Id like to learn how to be more effective as a conduit between folks, attention to what others have done to help them be better and more effective, responsibility to bring this back to the communities I work in

Intention: make connections and learn from others experiencesAttention: Listen to peoples storiesResponsibility: Immerse myself in the conversation and listen!
Suzy Hiskey
46:52
I am in the beginning stages of creating an urban community volunteer program. My intent is to learn how to bring individuals together from multiple agencies towards a common conservation goal. I'm paying attention to how to ask questions and find common ground leading to solutions - especially when there are conflicting conservation points of view. I intend to find ways of processing and internalizing the my new knowledge and put it into practice.
Deb Kleinman
