Full Course Name: Intro to Facilitation - Fundamentals in Becoming a Confident Leader and Effective Facilitator

Are you looking to enhance your leadership skills while infusing your work with more collaboration? No matter if you are leading a brainstorming session, an organization wide retreat or community meeting, facilitating activities (design thinking based and beyond) with your team or community can lead to greater collaboration and capacity as well as productive communication with all participants. This interactive workshop answers “what is facilitation?” and demystifies your role as a facilitator, how to plan and prepare for a facilitated collaborative session, and how to develop your own facilitation style.

This introductory workshop by TYTHEdesign provides an overview of the principles of strong facilitation, guidance for preparing your own design-based facilitation frameworks, and examples of implementation from TYTHEdesign’s diverse work.

In addition to introducing the foundational basics of facilitation, you will also learn TYTHEdesign’s unique participatory model to demonstrate tips and tricks for planning a guided collaborative experience. You’ll identify key tools and strategies to maximize work with the varied stakeholders involved with your current or proposed project, program or organization. Come ready to learn, ask, and engage!

I loved this class! Super valuable for those who are planning and hosting meetings and workshops. I took away many helpful tips. The instructor is fantastic. One note for logistics: this venue is in a pretty hard to access location- no nearby subway, and a pretty desolate location at night. When you're hosting workshops that get out after dark, most of which people are attending alone and don't know anyone else in the class, I would have found it very helpful for the instructor to make note of that at the end and say "hey, this can be a pretty hard area to orient yourself from at night- we recommend ordering a cab before you leave the building if you can" or "hey, this is exactly how you get to the subway, it gets pretty quiet in this area so maybe we could coordinate a group to all walk there together if you like." Even as a native New Yorker, leaving here alone at night and trying to find the subway amongst the many construction reroutes happening was for sure one of my top 3 "I don't feel safe in New York" moments. I think this could be a pretty easy solve if you ask your instructors to make note of that at the end of the course!
