The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits is hosting “Facilitative Leadership:”
“Facilitation is an essential leadership competency. Facilitative leaders take a step back and nurture collaboration, capacity, and commitment with employees, colleagues, and stakeholders. With effective facilitation, groups can work together to assess a situation, analyze information, create a plan, and make group decisions that stick. The results of facilitative leadership are engaged participants, stronger teams, and efficient collaboration.
In this workshop we explore the qualities, values, and benefits of facilitative leadership. Participants will learn techniques for facilitating meetings that are designed to activate the power of the group: including the focused conversation method of facilitating group discussion and decision-making and the carousel method of synthesizing ideas. Throughout, we will discuss common barriers to facilitative leadership and how to overcome them.
Participants will leave with instructions and further resources for each of the techniques presented.”
