Get started changing the collaborative culture of your project or work. Learn an approach and structure you can use right away.

Our workshops are for anyone who engages with community. Our specialty is work focused on community of geography where the common element is place — everyone who lives, works, or uses resources in a certain area. This includes people working in governments, museums, libraries, school staff, architects and planners, and community organizers.

We also know that the Pomegranate Method is powerful within a community of affinity where community is defined by something other than place that binds us — mission, religion, hobby, company purpose. The principles and methods of collaboration are the same, no matter the setting.

Our standard introduction workshop is a two-and-a-half day intensive. Join our founder, Milenko Matanovic and CEO Katya Matanovic as they guide you through a cycle from initial idea through implementation. Our workshop covers the basic steps of the Pomegranate Method and introduces you to new tools and practices that increase collaboration. To highlight just a few, you’ll learn how to:

  • Find common themes and build agreement
  • Craft a shared vision for the future — what “ought” to happen
  • Facilitate fiercely in order to protect the process and respectfully include everyone
  • Design a project (of any size) from the very beginning to be more collaborative, creative and aligned
  • Incorporate even the smallest changes into your daily meetings and gatherings – at work, home or with your community – that can make decision making more fun and harmonious
