Fundamentals of Group Facilitation

Working with groups takes more than just booking a time to get together and have a conversation. It takes an intentional, planned approach and effective facilitation skills and strategies to support groups through the work they need to do. Whether supporting a group to vision or plan, engage stakeholders or make decisions, a facilitator can be a crucial and effective presence. If you are interested in working with groups as a facilitator, or currently do this work and could use some extra skills and strategies to ground your practice more fully, this workshop will help you get there.
