Event Details

Facilitated processes can help our organizations run more smoothly – from working better with board members and colleagues to interacting with potential sponsors and funders. This workshop will introduce you to fundamentals of facilitation. You will learn about uses and benefits of facilitated approaches, how to open a facilitated session, techniques for working with “easy” and “challenging” participants or situations, and ways to close a facilitated session so that the momentum continues after the gathering. The training will consist of mini-presentations on principles, demonstrations, opportunities to practice and exercises.

The workshop topics will include:
• Benefits, barriers and uses of facilitated processes
• Preparation, including Outcomes, Participants, and Logistics
• Opening, including Ice breakers, Ground rules/meeting courtesies, and Introducing the agenda
• Body of the facilitated session, including Encouraging interaction, Group roles, Question strategies, Group stages, Challenging group dynamics and interventions
• Closing, including Wrapping up and Follow-up
