Skill-flex Advisors

ruby listening to ianSkill-flex advisors support associates by sharing practical knowledge about how to do specific aspects of project design, implementation, management, and documentation.

We refer to 'skill-flexes' rather than 'skill sets' because one of Gaia University's goals is to support people to become more agile and flexible thinkers and doers in their world change work, rather than people "set in their ways."  

Associates select skill-flex advisors from a pool of graduate advisors within the Gaia University community. Examples of some skill-flex advising areas are digital media capture and editing, permaculture or ecovillage design, food production, energy systems design, business planning and development, public relations and grant-writing, digital literacy, and women's leadership design.
