Description

Moderator Training Workshop

Circles are a vital part of the Lean In experience—the place where you find a supportive community, accountability and encouragement to take big risks. Lean In research shows that Circles are stronger, more valuable and last longer if a member serves as group moderator and is trained in facilitation techniques.

Whether you want to moderate a Circle or want to learn facilitation skills for your own career development, join us at our Summer Moderator Training workshop. We'll learn from Brittany Flajole, a Training and Development Professional and Lean In Circle Moderator, and share best practices, pro tips and real world examples.

Wrap Up


How to Prepare

http://leanincircles.org/
http://leaninseattle.org/small-circles

If you haven't read Lean In, please watch Sheryl Sandberg's 15-minute TED Talk Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders. It covers the Lean In topics and sets the stage for our Circles. We'll have several interpersonal exercises and lots of group discussion, so come prepared to be open and communicative. Expect to learn from each other and empower each other to share our valuable input.
