HONING SKILLS FOR SYSTEMS CHANGE WORK
With Diane Musho Hamilton, Lisa Gibson, and Jennifer Berman
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, October 4-6, 2023 Via Zoom
Join Diane Musho Hamilton, Jennifer Berman, and Lisa Gibson for a deep dive into facilitating complexity. In these fragmented and uncertain times, one of our most valuable assets is our capacity to relate to one another. We must continuously uplevel our ability to create generative spaces where meaningful collaboration and contact can occur by engaging our whole selves and learning how to work with group energetics in new and different ways for transformation.
In this three-day experiential workshop, we will explore the personal, interpersonal, and structural dimensions of systemic change, supporting you to facilitate change with greater awareness, compassion, and clarity. You will be invited to practice different ways of knowing and being to sense and respond to what is most needed in the moment. With a supportive group of other experienced facilitators, you will learn tangible skills to engage complexity, navigate difficult interpersonal dynamics, and transform group energy to catalyze change in people and systems who are stuck in old patterns and practices.
THIS COURSE WILL HELP YOU TO:
- Increase your self-awareness and embodied presence as a facilitator.
- Expand your capacity to be with discomfort, uncertainty, and not knowing.
- Cultivate deep listening practices to access, recognize, and support what wants to unfold in yourself, others, and the broader systems in which you work.
- Practice perspective-taking to help build and sustain relationships across differences.
- Navigate the polarities that arise in groups.
- Understand, surface, and transform power dynamics.
YOU WILL RECEIVE
- 18 hours of live online instruction, practice, and Q&A with a highly experienced team
- A Resource Folder with supplemental materials
- Access to Zoom video and mp3 audio files of all teaching sessions
THIS WORKSHOP WILL BENEFIT ANYONE IN THE ROLE OF LEADER, COACH, CONSULTANT, OR CHANGE AGENT
