#133 – Worldwork


Max Schupbach, Ph.D. is the president of Maxfxx Inc., which is based in Portland, Oregon. He uses a facilitative approach in his work as a consultant, executive level coach, trainer and public speaker. According to his website, “Organizational transformation, personal growth, and professional development are inseparable. These disciplines need not be taught; they are inherent in our natures. Worldwork is an approach that connects individuals and organizations to that natural innate tendency, and supports personal and collective awareness for discovering emerging directions.” Max is a Certified Process Worker and a senior faculty member of the Process Work Center of Portland. He is part of the original group that founded the first Process Work Centers in Switzerland and the United States, and has co-founded Process Work training programs in over 15 countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia and North America. The vast diversity of his clientele includes Fortune 100 corporations and small businesses, large NGO’s and local grassroots movements, and government agencies and political parties. He conducts a Masterfacilitation Course for individual consultants and consulting groups such as PricewaterhouseCoopers. Max coaches executive level managers of businesses and non-profit organizations, as well as politicians running for and holding state and federal offices. He also facilitates community building among indigenous groups in Australia and North America, and in spiritual groups of various denominations. He has facilitated conflict resolution sessions in many different environments, such as maximum security prisons, Yugoslavian refugee camps with Serbians and Croats, and once in a stand-off between squatters and the police.
