"The art of convening operationalizes the dialogue principles and practices." Daniel Pesut, Director, Densford Center for International Nursing Leadership, University of Minnesota School of Nursing

Craig and Patricia are engaged in co-creating an annual Retreat with a leadership group at the University of Minnesota School of Nursing. As we organize and plan around the 9 Aspects of the Convening Wheel, the value of the AoC book as a "roadmap" for authentic engagement emerges as we not only operationalizes, but internalize the practices and principles that inform convening.

"Convening was, and is, one of the most powerful, life-altering forces in the universe. The genesis of this book can be traced back to the art of convening to energize communities and stir us to survive and envision what might be possible." -Richard Leider, Foreword, The Art of Convening
