Facilitation Training for Network Leaders
March 22-23, 2017
Kansas City, Missouri
For building effective collaborations, network leaders need to be skilled at bringing together groups of stakeholders with diverse perspectives to make decisions. However, this task is easier said than done: it is difficult to navigate conversations and meetings with multiple opinions in ways that ultimately bring the network closer to achieving its goals.
This interactive workshop will help participants build skills in group facilitation. Using proven methods known as the Technology of Participation (ToP), network leaders will learn practical facilitation tools for designing discussions, building consensus, and helping groups make decisions.
The workshop will take place over two days, running from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on March 22 and from 8:30 am to noon on March 23.
- Learn a foundational approach for facilitating discussions that lead to a meaningful exchange of ideas and problem solving
- Practice an engaging, structured process that energizes people to reach consensus
- Explore how rural health network leaders can apply proven facilitation tools toward collaborative network planning
