Event description
Learn to facilitate group discussions and help groups make decisions together in a way that engages all the voices in the group.

About this event

Part 1 Sept 21, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. PDT

Part 2 Sept 23, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. PDT

Two of the most important skills of an effective community leader is the ability to:

  1. Facilitate group discussions
  2. Help groups make decisions together in a way that engages all the voices in the group

Too often, we get thrown into the role of facilitator without having been taught the fundamentals and/or the chance to practice. In this workshop, you will have an opportunity to practice and receive feedback with peers in a fun, interactive, and non-threatening environment.

In Part 1, participants will learn fundamental skills of Facilitating Conversations in these areas:

  • Content Neutrality
  • Asking Good Questions
  • Active Listening
  • Keeping on Track

BONUS: We will also explore specific ways of applying these skills ONLINE that are different than in-person.  

In Part 2, we will share Meeting Planning & Management Skills:

  • Learn how to plan an agenda that helps the group meet their outcomes
  • Learn tips and tricks of both in-person and online meeting management
  • Learn a method for planning any meeting or training
  • Learn ways to facilitate more effective decision making processes.
