Liga Rudzite

About:

I know that learning is often about change, therefore it can be both frightening and beautiful. To me there is nothing more inspiring than discovering borders and trespassing them. I enjoy dealing with ambiguity, conciliation of dichotomies, working towards reaching consensus. I believe in the power of meeting and working together, that is the main reason I am here and willing to facilitate the process of discovery, learning and action.

Liga Rudzite has 10 references for past work as a trainer.
