Event Details

When several people come together to talk about a topic, they are often focused at different levels of the process and for different reasons. Each person has his or her own pattern and pace for coming to conclusions. There is no right or wrong pattern. There are only learned behaviors based on each persons’ life experiences.

When a conversation has no structure, there is often no way to ensure that each person’s thinking patterns can be dealt with productively. This is when chaos, conflict and discouragement can result. We will discuss how to honor each participant’s wisdom and build on it to come to a deeper understanding and a unified decision.

We will be showcasing three methods to improve group processes: Focused Conversation, Consensus Workshop and Action Planning.


Upon completion of this 1-hour overview, the participants will be able to:

  • Describe the importance of proficient facilitation skills

  • Differentiate between three methods of facilitation and when to use each one

  • Design questions that stimulate candid feedback and discussion
