IAP2 Wild Rose is partnering with Dialogue Partners to host training sessions on group facilitation skills for public engagement in Calgary and Edmonton in the New Year. Additional public engagement training is also being planned for 2012 and 2013 and will be posted on the IAP2 Wild Rose website and included in upcoming issues of the Rosebush.
This two-day course provides the guidance, skills and knowledge necessary to become comfortable with all the critical elements of facilitation for public and stakeholder engagement. Participants will learn facilitation skills to deal with emotion, expand positive participation, identify and build common ground and move discussion forward. This course emphasizes the planning and designing of facilitated public involvement events and has a practicum component that gives all participants ample opportunity to facilitate in a supportive and constructive environment.
This course is for policy and programme officers or managers and communication and consultation specialists working in governmental or non-governmental organizations and people in large companies who will be required to engage stakeholders or internal teams in the course of public involvement projects.
This course is appropriate for all levels of an organization and for staff with no experience in facilitation up to intermediate experience.
Space is limited so remember to register for this course by January 9th to confirm your spot.
