Facilitation Strategies

Managers are realizing the value of keeping a group energized, focused on task, and producing effective results. Whether you lead a problem-solving team, work with executives in strategic planning, or just want to assist in moving your own group through the collaborative process more effectively, facilitation is a critical skill. This session teaches the fundamentals of facilitation and provides opportunities for participants to practice the techniques they learn.

Working It Out

No organization is immune to internal conflict. There will always be personality clashes, misunderstandings, petty irritations and turf battles. People may battle openly over an issue or refuse to communicate at all. This session will not attempt to help managers avoid conflict, but will provide a toolbox for working out differences and using conflict as an opportunity for personal and organizational growth and change.
