This workshop builds upon Intro to Facilitation – Fundamentals in Becoming a Confident Leader. Prior attendance is recommended, but not required if you are familiar with facilitation and co-creation.
Are you looking to strengthen your ability to guide collaborative group sessions and establish yourself as a leader along the way? No matter if you are leading a brainstorming session, an organization wide retreat or community meeting; increase your productivity, team collaboration, and efficiency as a leader by building your confidence and skills as an inspiring and effective facilitator.
Leading Through Facilitation builds upon our Intro to Facilitation workshop and focuses on how to lead a successful facilitated session, highlighting strategies and techniques for successfully managing group dynamics. In a participatory activity, TYTHE models troubleshooting approaches and specific tools to ease difficult situations. Gain an understanding of your own facilitation style and how to increase your confidence in this unique role. With specific examples, tailored techniques and a participatory activity, this workshop will bridge the gap between theory and practice.
