Workshop: Behaviors & the Beautiful Responses: Moving Forward through Facilitation

Do you run workshops around alignment, new strategies and concept generation? This workshop will cover how to improve your ability to lead design conversations through clear and productive facilitation skills and how to empower teams to comfortably lead creative initiatives.

Throughout the workshop, we will be sharing practical stories in the form of lightning talks and guiding participants in hands-on exercises. Each section will cover key components of preparing yourself and your audience and allow participants to craft their own tools/methods for running successful exercises with their own teams.

We will also highlight some of the benefits of sharpening these skills and how they will lead to stronger research, more fortified relationships with your team, stakeholders and the potential to grow your career.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Prepare and execute different types of workshops in different business environments
  • Be more empathic and successful facilitators
  • Approach and conduct conversations with challenging audience members
  • Use facilitation as a skillset to navigate your career
  • Develop your own internal community and educate your peers and stakeholders

Facilitators will also share victories, pitfalls and tips/tricks to preparing for the worst, navigating difficult personalities, and the ability to take people on an inspiring journey that lead to successful outcomes.

Prerequisite: This workshop is a good fit for attendees who have had some experience participating in or facilitating a workshop before.
