Introductory Workshops

Now more than ever, we see the devastating consequences when stakeholders aren’t involved in making decisions that affect them. You can help. Become a Convergent Facilitator.
In five 2.5 hour modules delivered on Zoom, you’ll learn this three-phase decision-making methodology:

It can be used:

 

· Throughout the lifecycle of a long-term project


· To break through a bottleneck


· To reach a quick decision

This practical workshop teaches how to build trust from the very beginning, surface concerns and address them, and turn conflicts into dilemmas that the group feels energized to solve together. The intended result is a decision everyone supports that’s arrived at with surprising efficiency. Ample breakout activities and coached role-plays will prepare you to begin using Convergent Facilitation immediately.

Now when I plan a meeting, I use Convergent Facilitation to guide how I shape my agenda so we get to outcomes that everyone can live with.

After attending the Convergent Facilitation Workshop, I walked away feeling empowered to ask questions, dig deeper, not compromise, and not to be afraid to provide my ideas and thoughts because my opinion matters!

It was so heartening to see the faces, interest and commitment from all over the world last week, and I am intrigued and hopeful about what this course might seed.
