Class Description:
A work team seeks to create a strategic plan to guide work for 3-5 years. A city seeks to create a new policy with input from various stakeholders. A family seeks to plan an enormous annual reunion. Each scenario involves people with individual opinions, values, motivations, and feelings about the task at hand. The alignment of their positions can range from synched and complementary to completely opposed and contentious.
To guide groups of diverse thought towards collective decisions, the facilitator plays a key role in driving a process for the collection, evaluation, and synthesis of ideas and feedback. In this course, students will be introduced to the art of facilitation: philosophy, tools, and methodology. We will examine case studies that illustrate approaches and problem-solving scenarios and end our course with hands-on practice.
