As a long-time facilitator, improv actor, therapist and social entrepreneur, Andres Marquez-Lara, is in the business of healing. He channels this passion as Founder and CEO of UFacilitate where he helps purpose-driven leaders create spaces for deep connection, collaboration and transformation. In this episode, Andres and Tyler explore some of the key points of effective facilitation and how those translate to critical leadership skills. Andres shares the story of how one of his greatest failures as a facilitator led to some of his deepest learning: that when we can recognize our own actions and reactions, keep curiosity at the center and step out of our own way, we leave room for deep insights to emerge.
