FacilitateMI: Self Assessment and Development

02/27/20

Digital Discussion, 9-1030 AM ET - Register here!

A vital component to continuing to grow as a facilitator is to always be assessing your areas of strengths and needed areas of development. Event Garde has developed eight domains in which we assess our knowledge, skills and confidence as facilitators. This session will review the importance of self-assessment, the eight domains of facilitation competency and will explore ways in which this information can be used to inform our community of practice learning segments throughout 2020.

ASAE Great Ideas Conference

03/01/20 - 03/03/20

​Salt Lake City, UT

Organization: ASAE

https://www.asaecenter.org/

​Healthy By Association will be hosting Mind and Body Sunrise Sessions on both Monday and Tuesday.

The mind and body connection is often overlooked when thinking about innovation. Physical movement and healthy eating prepare us to be present and start our day with energy and intention. Movement stimulates the brain—namely the hippocampus—in important ways. Its benefits are associated with things like improved divergent and convergent thinking, which are considered the two components of creative thinking and perfect for maximizing your experiences throughout the event as you discover innovative solutions.

Exercise does not have to mean a strenuous workshop. The sunrise sessions are designed to “wake up” your mind and body and prepare you for a great day of learning. Join us for a fun and engaging early-morning start to the day!

Learn: Each meeting features a core facilitation topic led by a certified Technology of Participation (ToP) facilitator and qualified trainer. Likewise, participants are encouraged to ask questions and to share their own knowledge/experiences.

Transfer: We ask participants to bring with them any facilitation challenges (past, present or future) they’d like to discuss as a group. No challenge is too big or small. We leverage the collective wisdom and experience of the group to brainstorm possible solutions / recommendations.
