Are you new to leading meetings? Do you want to be a better facilitator and a better meeting participant? This 4-part series on growing your facilitation skills has something for you! Offered online, each 90-minute session builds on the previous session content and will engage you with tools and perspectives for facilitating both in person and online meetings. To receive a certificate of completion, you must attend all four sessions and complete a Personal Action Plan.

Part 1 (January 23): Designing Good Meetings
Part 2 (January 30): Facilitation Mindset and Skillset
Part 3 (February 6): Tools to Facilitate Engagement
Part 4 (February 13): Handling Facilitation Challenges

$40 - I have a small personal budget and an interest in learning more about facilitation
