Fearless Facilitation

An effective facilitator will unlock business value, improve morale, and propel innovation, creativity, and collaboration. Facilitators within organizations are most often selected based on criteria like technical expertise, organizational seniority, or even simply an interest in or comfort with being in front of people. While many of these criteria are important, they do not guarantee a skilled or dynamic facilitator.

Discover the critical elements of skilled facilitation in this two-day workshop on PLU's beautiful campus in Tacoma, WA. Experienced facilitator and iterative design expert Ryan Kiggins will lead participants through these critical elements using videos and group discussion. Most importantly, every participant will get the opportunity to put their new knowledge into practice by facilitating discussion in the workshop itself.

At the end of the two days, participants will be able to

    • Identify practices and mindsets that enable dynamic and engaging facilitation
    • Avoid common pitfalls when facilitating
    • Understand how to use feedback to improve facilitation skills
    • Use the skills identified in the class to achieve the best possible result in collaborative engagements
