ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
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.
- Facilitating under pressure
- Creative thinking & decision-making
- Chart-writing & action-planning
- Confronting difficult dynamics
- Leading collaboration
You will leave the workshop with new tools, tactics, and a personalized work plan containing strategies to improve your techniques. 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.
This workshop is transformative for anyone who leads groups of colleagues or students, especially teachers, administrators, and department chairs. We also highly encourage you to consider attending the workshop with a team from your school.
