Quality facilitation is one of the best predictors of community harmony, especially when it comes to making decisions.  This two part course focuses on relationship-nurturing practices needed when disagreement is present, imminent or possible.  Grounded in deep listening and profound respect for each individual, the course breaks down the practices, skills and mindsets that make up masterful facilitation and lead to more connected, safer-feeling communities.  

Learning Objectives:

  • Role of the facilitator – guiding the community without creating a power struggle
  • A process – understanding all the elements that go into an effective community process, most of which happen outside of full community meetings
  • Gathering information and listening – Pulling together all the things you need to know to guide your community to a successful proposal.
  • Strong proposals – Identifying elements of a strong proposal and supporting community members in building one, without taking sides on the content
