Awakening the Spirit of Creative Collaboration

Working Together Toward A Shared Future

The New "Bottom Line"

To work together in new ways, we need new ways of thinking and feeling and sensing together.

Instead of being a source of static and friction, diversity of viewpoints can become a freely available source of energy and innovation.

I offer simple yet powerful understandings, practices, and structures that can make all the difference in the world.


Hi, I'm Rosa Zubizarreta, founder of Diapraxis.

One of my gifts is helping create human environments where complex challenges can give birth to new creative possibilities.

I especially enjoy designing and hosting learning opportunities for those who are called to this work.



The Power of Groups in Flow

Whenever we are fully engaged in creative work, the line between "work" and "play" begins to blur.

Starting from significantly different perspectives and creating shared meaning together, can be a highly engaging process.

Yet for us humans to stay in our "creative brains", research shows that psychological safety is key. (Otherwise, we tend to shift over into our lizard brains...)

How might you benefit from a greater capacity to transform unproductive friction into greater creativity and collaboration?

And how might you and your organization benefit, from having a greater internal capacity to ensure that all of your meetings are awesome

-- especially the challenging ones, where differences need to be hashed out?

In addition to working with leaders who are committed to organizational health and transformation, I also consult with professionals who design and manage:

• public participation projects
• stakeholder collaborations
• community planning processes

To explore whether working together might be a good fit, we can start via e-mail and then schedule an initial pro-bono consultation.
