The Confident Facilitator: A Workshop For Young Professional Women

Tuesday, December 5, 2017 to Friday, December 8, 2017
Event Description: 

At some point in your career you have been asked or you will be asked to facilitate a group discussion or learning event. This might be something as simple as leading a staff meeting or as challenging as designing and facilitating a multi-day strategic planning process.

This unique, highly participatory, four-day workshop will help you become a better, more inclusive leader; one who promotes new ideas and makes others feel included. It combines key elements of Plan’s renowned women’s leadership program with its highly-acclaimed facilitation skills trainings. The dynamic and supportive environment provides a place for you to learn, practice new skills, and receive immediate feedback from your peers and trainers.

Entry and mid-level professional women who are not already skilled trainers or facilitators will leave the workshop with knowledge of:

  1. Confidence-building strategies to lead more effectively;
  2. An assessment of personal learning styles and facilitation strategies for each style;
  3. A solid theoretical foundation on principles and concepts of adult learning and participatory facilitation methods—bedrock skills that can be applied to any context;
  4. Trusted techniques, tips, and tactics to manage various group dynamics and other challenging situations; and
  5. The opportunity to practice facilitating on camera and receive constructive feedback from experts and peers.
