This conversation is brought to you by Our Community, a forming ecological egalitarian community in Ando
ver Borough, NJ.
Laird has lived 38 years at Sandhill Farm, an income-sharing rural community in Missouri which he helped found. He is also the main administrator of the Fellowship for Intentional Community, a network organization he helped create in 1986, and that serves as a clearinghouse of information about North American communities of all stripes. In addition to being an author and public speaker about various aspects of community, he's also a meeting junkie and has parlayed his passion for good process into a consulting business on group dynamics. He's worked professionally with perhaps 80 different groups, many of them multiple times. His specialty is up-tempo meetings that engage the full range of human input, teaching groups to work creatively with conflict, and at the same time being ruthless about about capturing as much product as possible. In 2003, he pioneered a two-year training in Integrative Facilitation that he's delivered four times
and is now marketing across the continent. He also authors a blog that he launched in 2007 and to which he contributes every three days:
