Pomegranate Center


Pomegranate Center is committed to shifting the culture toward collaboration by supporting individuals and agencies  through training, coaching, consulting and speaking.


Pomegranate Center believes conveners – people who are fierce defenders of a process that is collaborative and inclusive – are heroes. Theirs is a form of leadership not often celebrated, but so needed in our times. Join our revolution.

In the future, every community, agency and company should have teams of trained facilitators that are neutral about what is decided, but fierce about protecting the process.

Let’s work together to end bad meetings. Meetings with no clear direction, that devolve into shouting matches, that drift toward inaction. The Pomegranate Method gives people the tools and methods to build collaborative, inclusive, decisive projects that lead to alignment.  Through workshops and free one-on-one coaching for graduates worldwide, Pomegranate Center supports collaborative community engagement wherever people gather.
