At a time of polarization and challenges that require collaboration, this workshop offers practical tools for facilitating meetings that enable people in communities and organizations of all kinds to work together more effectively. Beth Tener of New Directions Collaborative will facilitate, sharing tested methods from her work with over 150 organizations and collaborative initiatives.
Key topics include:
– How to clarify the strategic context and range of outcomes for a meeting
– How to frame strategic questions for the group to explore
– An introduction to, and experience of, several participatory methods
– How to structure an agenda with samples of agenda designs
We chose a special location for the event – the Seacoast Science Center, which has a beautiful conference room with stone walls, overlooking the ocean, in Rye, New Hampshire.
Workshop fee is $100.
