Facilitation Training (Improve Your Meetings) & External Facilitation
Facilitation at our Islamic Community Food Project
How a group works, can be as important as what a group does. At WIN, we believe that developing skills in facilitating meetings is an overlooked, yet core necessity to ensure our groups are working in a healthy way. That's why we give attention to facilitation.
Over the years we've seen good facilitation and poor facilitation. Good facilitation empowers, whereas poor facilitation can leave people feeling unheard, frustrated, and piles up problems for the future.
Within our group we practice inclusive forms of decision-making, such as consensus, explore power dynamics as well as margins and mainstreams for example, and draw on work from a range of sources and experience such as the direct action movement and Process Work. We also take time to reflect on how we are doing things, and continue training ourselves to support our ongoing development.
Improve Your Meetings - Core facilitation skills training: to enable your group to be more confident and skilled in holding effective, inclusive meetings that benefit everyone.
- External Facilitation: If your group is stuck in a conflict, it can sometimes help to invite an external facilitator. If you are interested in inviting us for this purpose, please contact us to discuss further.
Our aim is to ensure all voices in a group are heard and integrated, supporting a group to more fully process conflict (rather than to suppress or avoid it), and to thus move forward in a meaningful way that will ultimately enhance the effectiveness of your group.
Alternatively, you may like to have an external facilitator for a special event or forum. This can also allow members of your group to participate, leaving the facilitation to us.
