Facilitating Group Dynamics for Effective Teams
Friday, February, 2014 | 8:30am - 4:00pm
National Equity Project Headquarters | Oakland, CA $400
Registration includes the learning seminar session, plenary speakers, National Equity Project Facilitator's Resource Guidebook, and meals. Meals include breakfast and lunch. Coffee and tea will be available throughout the day.
Facilitating a group is complex, challenging work. Even a well-designed agenda can be sidelined by participant anxieties or volatile emotions that create unproductive group dynamics. This seminar will help you to understand what’s underneath the challenges your group is facing and learn facilitation skills that can create a team with greater agency and effectiveness.
There is no way to be certain about how a meeting will unfold, but there are research-based, reliable ways a facilitator can plan and adjust based on the needs of the group to get to more positive outcomes. This seminar will help you transform your staff or departments into effective teams with a shared vision and commitment to what they can accomplish together.
