The purpose of the High Impact Facilitation Intensive is to develop advanced-level competencies in facilitation for collective action and impact. Participants work to realize personal developmental goals and demonstrate newly acquired facilitation capacities. It is a 4-month long program consisting of a 3-day Intensive followed by an accompaniment process where participants engage in applied learning, peer engagement and post-intensive accompaniment in the form of coaching sessions and peer support and learning. After four months, the program concludes with a 2-hour online completion meeting.
During the hands-on Intensive participants work towards the following outcomes:
- Self-awareness of preferred styles and approaches and the ability to step outside of those patterns when needed.
- The development of newly-acquired facilitation capacities.
- Design of structures and methods that create the conditions for deeper, more satisfying and efficient engagement and collaboration. This includes: how to sustain vibrancy, curiosity and motivation while navigating complexity; how to create a safe and inviting space; how to work with conflict; and how to drive effective cross-sector collaboration.
