"Gracious Space is a spirit and setting where we invite the stranger and learn in public."


Center for Ethical Leadership

Gracious Space is a core body of work developed by the Center for Ethical Leadership which has helped over 15,000 people in 30 states and 45 countries to work better together around critical issues. The Center has created and used Gracious Space in many sectors, including health care, business, government, community, nonprofit, and schools.

Most groups are made up of well-meaning people who nevertheless find themselves in situations of conflict with others. Whether the project is a leadership development program, community initiative, difficult conversation on race, a reorganization, performance appraisal, coaching conversation, new vision, mission or strategic plan, a new team, or mediation – Gracious Space can make the relationships stronger and the workflow more creatively.

MSU Extension has 27 certified agents in Gracious Space.
