Facilit8me Community of Practice

Join us for our open community of practice dialogue! We ask participants to bring with them any facilitation challenges (past, present or future) they’d like to discuss as a group for supportive feedback, debrief and evaluation. No challenge is too big or small. We leverage the collective wisdom and experience of the group to brainstorm possible solutions, advice and recommendations in a safe and growth-minded environment.

Facilit8me Grapes & Games

02/16/21

Online, 5-530 PM ET, Register here!

The premise is two-fold: Grab your favorite grape (in wine form, of course) or cocktail/mocktail of your choice and spend an hour with us as we talk digital games. We’ve asked and you’ve shared with us some of the games you’re using to stay connected with colleagues, friends and family during this period of social distancing. Prior to each session, you’ll vote on the game you want to try out and we’ll play it together. We’ll discuss what we like, what we don’t, possible modifications and share in a laugh or two along the way. So, join us for a low-key evening of grapes and games to learn, network and decompress.

Lunch and Learn: Facilitation Soft Skills

03/18/21

Online, 1-130 PM ET - Register here!

Join us for another enlightening lunch and learn discussion! Each session we’ll focus on a different facilitation core competency: from developing collaborative stakeholder relationships and creating a participatory environment to supporting implementation through quality documentation and everything in between. The format is simple: Read the featured article or blog post, watch the short video, or reflect on a certain element of your facilitation practice prior to attending. And in just 30 minutes, we’ll host a fast-paced, though-provoking focused conversation sure to leave each of us with new insights and takeaways we can immediately apply to our facilitation work.

For those a bit more advanced, this is a great opportunity to refine your practice.
