Advanced Facilitative Leadership—Navigating Your Way Through Conflict, an experiential workshop focused on developing your comfort with leading high-heat meetings. This was initiated in response to requests from participants in our other programs (Facilitative Leadership; Communicating through Conflict; Conflict, Collaboration & Consensus) for a next-step focused on leading in conflict-ridden situations. Completion of Facilitative Leadership is a pre-requisite for attending this workshop.

The workshop will focus on leading groups desiring collaborative action, but facing difficult situations involving differences that could potentially stop forward movement.

We’ll use realistic situations and a simple framework to help you practice key skills and processes. The framework focuses on four essential clusters of competencies—self-awareness, self-management, group awareness, and group facilitative leadership. Participants will pair up to practice leading a meeting and will receive intensive feedback in a subsequent debrief session. You will also 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.

The cost of the workshop, $495, includes lodging, meals, a book and additional materials. Please note that registration fees cannot be refunded after Monday, November 27.

The program will begin at 10 a.m. on Dec. 6 with lunch and end on Dec. 8 at 3 p.m.
