What’s your story as a facilitator?
In Reimagining Facilitation in Complex Times, you’ll join a cohort of changemakers from around the world to practice holding space for multiple stories and perspectives while igniting more impactful meetings and collaborations.
If you facilitate meetings, events, workshops or if you lead a team or organize with other people, this training is for you — especially if you find yourself pushing up against the edges of what seems possible. We'll help you harness your unique gifts as a facilitator and design collaborative spaces. You'll gain the clarity and confidence to make self-aware and intentional facilitation moves in accordance with your group’s needs and goals.
Our program emphasizes three core capacities today’s facilitators need to be effective:
💡 Managing complexity: As the climate, wealth inequality and covid-19 crises converge, and power dynamics shift, new dimensions of risk and opportunity are continually opening up. Learn how to help your group stay connected and make decisions when there’s no easy answers or any single path forward.
💡 Storytelling: Human brains are wired for stories. They help us empathize and draw meaning from complex information. Since complex problems have no single story, you’ll need to handle and harness the power of the multiple perspectives in the room while keeping the group in relationship with one another. Working with the stories that shape how your group understands itself, the problem and possible solutions allows you to listen better, build trust, ask the right questions and navigate the road ahead.
💡 Digital savvy: Use technology (whether basic or sophisticated) in accessible, creative and interesting ways that energize people.
