February 2015: On one end of the spectrum there are lively, fun, conversations that leave everyone feeling marvelous but are not documented.
On the other end are task-oriented evaluation meetings and data collections that can be cold and distant and not seem to adequately represent the nature of the work that we do.
Participatory Leadership Facilitation and Evaluation; learn how engagement processes can be combined with evaluation knowledge for original data collection, increased community contributions, and productive and well-documented conversations.
Join a highly engaging workshop delivered for two years in a row at the American Evaluation Association receiving excellent attendee reviews.
- To use four different facilitation technologies for group-decision making processes for small
- To identify possible adaptations of these processes specifically for participatory and collaborative evaluation or data collection, and more broadly for organisational development;
- To host a meeting environment that facilitates meaningful, deep conversations by creating structures where all participants contribute and some participants don’t dominate;
- Learn to identify four facilitation skills (sensing, synthesising, holding space, and pausing to discuss processes and/or group dynamics);
- Two facilitation theories that identify the importance of emergence and collective intelligence to face social complexity;
- Aspects of Art of Hosting and modifications that support Evaluation Practice
- Aspects of tikanga Maori approaches to hosting, facilitation, and evaluation techniques
