Event description

Description

Managing productive conversations is, more than ever, a key skill as we look to work more collaboratively with other professions as well as reaching out more to communities. This session, run by Irene Beautyman a trained and highly experienced facilitator, looks beyond the tools to managing the group dynamics and individual behaviours that can frequently dominate a group conversation and take it off course.

A session for anyone wanting to facilitate more effective group conversations or workshop sessions to:

  • keep the conversation on topic when it drifts,
  • prevent one or two people from dominating the conversation,
  • encourage people to talk if they are not contributing,
  • prevent people talking over each other,
  • intervene if someone is becoming argumentative, and
  • end a session on time when people continue talking.



What previous attendees have fed back:

"Good format with useful exercises and handouts that I can use"

"Good to do on a regular basis to refresh as consultations can be intermittent"

"Although based in DM, I found it very relevant to meeting with developers, objectors etc"

"I thought the event was very useful. We do lots of work that requires facilitation which can often prove challenging. "

"Good clear take home messages"



This workshop will be run by Irene Beautyman, Improvement Service, Planning for Place Programme Manager.

Free to all Planning Skills Series member organisations.

£75 to non members
