Learn how to design and facilitate engaging workshops which deliver results. This masterclass is about building consensus in a room full of people with conflicting ideas and agendas. The facilitator plays an important role when conducting any form of workshop: they help pave the way for discussion, they provide guidance and context and they provide direction. A great facilitator makes it easy for groups of people to collaborate, make decisions and move projects forward.
In this masterclass, Alexandra Lung discusses the role of the facilitator, and walks you through how to effectively design, prepare for, and facilitate a workshop. Alexandra will present multiple facilitation techniques and share tips on how to keep things on track and deal with challenging dynamics.
