Mastering Group Facilitation (SF)

Whether you are a teacher, department head, group leader, or administrator, you know the power and impact of excellent facilitation. Groups reach new levels of creativity, productivity, and innovation with the support of a strong facilitator. But what does it take to play that pivotal role? How does one consistently lead groups through complex, sometimes tense, discussions and decisions? How can these competencies be applied in the classroom as well as the conference room? “Mastering Group Facilitation” focuses on answering these questions. If working towards mastery in this area is a priority, then this dynamic 3-day session is for you. This workshop fills quickly– be sure to reserve your spot soon!

The workshop will focus on a number of topics including: Facilitating under pressure — Creative thinking & decision making –Chart-writing & action planning — Confronting difficult dynamics — and Leading collaboration.

You will leave the workshop with new tools, tactics, and a personalized work plan containing strategies to improve your techniques. The workshop is designed to boost the confidence and competence of participants in their quest to help groups do their very best work. Our presenter will be David Barkan, a nationally recognized facilitator and consultant who has trained many educators to discover their strengths as leaders in schools. He brings insight, humor, and boundless energy to his workshops.

The workshop is limited to 30 people. All meals and materials, including book, are included.
