About Allison Hammond:
Allison Hammond created ResponsAble People and Company to help people and groups design plans for the future based on their gifts, skills, and knowledge through visual facilitation processes. This comes from a lifelong passion for bringing people together in the community for better lives. From a young age, Allison recognized that all people have unique gifts to share. Having a dancer’s heart, Allison loves to be creative and use art to communicate, which fosters her love for using visual facilitation that brings people’s plans to life. As a natural-born teacher and facilitator, she guides people through meaningful and deep conversations to discover their attributes, visions for the future, and how to get there as a community.
Allison is a trained Making Action Plans (MAPS), Positive Alternative Tomorrows with Hope (PATH), and Charting the Life Course facilitator, which uses visual facilitation or sketch note-taking to record the plan. These processes focus on individuals or groups that seek to design a plan that clarifies a vision while acknowledging the gifts that people bring to the process. Then, the individual or the group creates a plan based on these attributes and what each person can contribute to the outcome.
