About the Programme

Designed for individuals who facilitate discussions about change in their organisation or across a range of stakeholders, this programme builds confidence in managing complex conversations. Facilitators often experience:

  • People in the group struggling with confusion and ambiguity
  • A group of individuals with different expectations and needs
  • Difficulties with managing the strong feelings of people in the group
  • A range of assumptions based on organisational culture

All of these can act as barriers to effective collective action. The programme is built around a series of participant driven workshops focusing on the tools and techniques most relevant to those taking part.

Working in a way that is responsive to the needs of the group, the two day programme will explore:

  • Learning from experience of change and engagement
  • Understanding the transformation challenges for individuals
  • The dynamics and stages of group formation
  • Facilitation at its best – unleashing the power to engage people in change
  • Facilitating diverse voices to work with the power of diversity
  • Courageous facilitation and conflict resolution – facilitating in the zone of uncomfortable debate
  • Working with the blockers and enablers of change
  • Developing your transformational storytelling ability to engage and excite people in change
  • Organisational consultancy techniques, such as Appreciative Inquiry, Scenario Planning and creative thinking.
