Ideal for: Introductory Level
This 10-week course uses highly interactive activities to build your capacity to facilitate meetings and coalitions that are efficient, effective, and lead to results.
To be a more effective and efficient facilitator, we’ll help you first understand your own facilitation style. Learn how to anticipate, prevent and intervene in difficult situations to keep the group from derailing and halting progress. Explore structured strategies you can use to generate ideas, evaluate and select ideas, and make a group decision. You’ll learn to help a group meet its goals and take ownership of the process.
We use a flipped-classroom approach, so you’ll work through course content independently and then connect with a small cohort of peers weekly for live learning sessions that provide an opportunity to ask questions, share your knowledge, and learn from others.
