WHO IS IT FOR?
The training and process methodology is aimed at those who use conversations and facilitation of meetings in their work and want to improve the dialogue to succeed in their role. You can be a manager or be responsible for leading and facilitating processes in the organization, be an internal or external consultant or coach, teacher/trainer, supervisor or therapist. Maybe you’re none of that yet, but dream of becoming one and see that this can be an excellent way to prepare.
The focus is on dialogue and the art of thinking together. The training aims to provide a solid foundation for those who lead development and change by facilitating organisational conversations and meetings. This skill and ability is becoming increasingly central as the complexity and unpredictability of working life and society increases. The demands on managing dialogue digitally are also growing and require new knowledge and understanding that we explore during the course.
THE PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE TRANSFORMATIVE FACILITATION
The aim is to provide knowledge and the ability to facilitate good dialogues with desirable results in the meeting between people with highly topical issues on the table.
The process integrates theory, practical skills and personal development into a whole. It gives you broad and valuable knowledge about gaining depth and success through different conversations, no matter what role you have today. You get practical tools and a well-founded theoretical base that you constantly put about who you are and those you meet, regardless of whether you meet physically or digitally.
THE GOAL IS TO:
• increase the ability to take advantage of diversity and disagreements.
• unleash people’s talents, skills, energy and drive
• Improve problem-solving and decision-making in groups
• Increase the ability to move faster from words to action.
• increase understanding of the possibilities and difficulties of the conversation.
• establish a common conceptual apparatus and frame of reference around the essential discussions,
• learn to interpret and understand what happens in different conversations,
• learn how we can influence a conversation in the right meeting room,
• Gain insight into what it takes to build a conversational culture.
