Advanced Facilitative Leadership—Navigating Your Way Through Conflict is an experiential workshop focused on deepening and enhancing facilitation skills targeted especially at those who facilitate groups around value-laden, “high-heat” community issues.
Advanced Facilitative Leadership is offered once a year. Prior completion of MSU Extension’s three-day workshop, Facilitative Leadership, is required.
We’ll use realistic situations and a simple framework to help you practice key skills and processes. The framework focuses on four essential competencies:
- Group Awareness
- Group Facilitative Leadership
Participants will pair up to practice leading a meeting and will receive intensive feedback in a subsequent debrief session. Participants also will try out a variety of skills and competencies with practice situations, explore the importance of working with emotions and create a personal philosophy statement to guide your future work.
