Who is it for?

This workshop is for teams & leaders who want to:

  • Practice ways to engage colleagues remotely
  • Engage multiple learner and personality types
  • Give space to all voices
  • Effectively structure an online meeting or workshop
  • Create moments of connection between the participants
  • Reflect on and develop their facilitation abilities

What do I walk away with?

  • Actionable techniques to include diverse perspectives in a group setting

What is the course format?

You will practice facilitating remotely within small groups. After each exercise you will share or receive feedback on facilitation.

First and foremost we believe in learning by doing. We structure the course so that you're doing the talking and engaging. At times you'll work on your own, in pairs or as a part of a small group. We'll use MURAL boards to facilitate certain exercises and illustrate ideas. No prior use of MURAL is required.

Note:

We want to make our services accessible to non-profit organizations - see the pricing variations below depending on your budget. If something doesn’t fit within your budget, reach out below as we offer scholarships.
