Description: A core function of coalitions is making decisions as a group around the most pressing issues affecting their communities. How can we effectively solve problems together, reach consensus, and resolve conflict? Being a dynamic facilitator means you can get a pulse of the group and direct the conversation to productive decision-making. However, this involves managing different personalities in the room and troubleshooting challenges as they come up. This training will provide a brief introduction to elements of good facilitation and how to navigate difficult facilitation scenarios.  Come prepared to try on something new!
