In this fun, fast-paced online workshop, you’ll learn how to facilitate large group virtual meetings. Your instructors will lead you through various methods, teaching why and how they work.
You’ll get facilitation tips and tricks and learn how to incorporate these techniques into virtual meetings. You’ll end the day with a new way of looking at facilitating virtually and the confidence to approach it with renewed energy and optimism.
Yes, you read right. We can meet for a full day in real life (or at least, we used to be able to!). We still need to come together to solve big problems, and sometimes that takes a big group to have all the knowledge, experience and expertise in the room. We’ll take breaks, run warmups and keep you energized and engaged the whole day.
Facilitators lead and guide teams through important gatherings (think: strategic meetings, “stand ups,” working sessions, etc.) to achieve better outcomes. They are skilled at developing focused agendas, leading collaborative activities, remaining impartial, and keeping participants on task. Even if you are not a professional facilitator, many of us have to play the role of facilitator at key moments in our day-to-day work. Here’s your chance to learn tools to do it more successfully.

Patterns to foster radical conversation
