Facilitating with Purpose & Poise - Even When Things Get Hot @ Essential Partners Inc

Anyone who leads meetings can be thrown off balance when difficult moments arise. The difficulty might be an unexpected tense moment among group members, a dynamic or group norm that makes listening or sharing airtime difficult, or challenges to the facilitator’s legitimacy. In either case, as a facilitator, you can learn to prevent an intense “deer in headlights” moment by preparing well and acting with calmness and intention. This workshop offers a framework for thinking on your feet and the opportunity to apply that framework as you practice “staying grounded.” You will learn tools and techniques to improve your ability to navigate challenges as a leader of constructive conversation – in an organization, on campus, in a faith community, or in a community-wide dialogue about a divisive issue.
