This is an online course, offered on Zoom. The course is in two parts:  

  1. Participants will have short online modules to complete at their convenience between November 16 and December 3 (about 60-90 minutes of time in total; 4 modules)  
  2. Live session online Friday, December 4 (9:00 – 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 – 4:00 p.m.)   

Lack of consensus. A few people dominate the discussion. Lots of idea, but no clear decisions made. There has to be a better way.

Facilitating online groups can pose additional challenges when being “in a meeting” means most or all participants are online, or some are online, and others are in a room “mask to mask.”  

Whether you regularly facilitate or are just a frequent participant in group discussions, you can hone particular communication and leadership skills within the context of a meeting.  

This course will give you tools for planning and guiding meetings so that everyone contributes, and ideas are turned into clear agreements. Contribute to the success of your organization by creating a workplace environment that leverages the power of the group while driving toward a common goal.
