Workshops

I am currently offering workshops using Zoom and Mural, a powerful online tool for visual collaboration.

This is where I list upcoming public classes and workshops focused on individual facilitation tools and approaches when I have such workshops scheduled.

Upcoming Workshops at PCC

I am doing workshops through PCC’s continuing education division. These will be offered online using Zoom and Mural (one of my favorite new tools). Because we are using Mural, you will need a computer, rather than a phone, to participate.

Winter Term

  • Tools for Good Meeting Facilitation on four consecutive Tuesdays from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m, starting January 12th. NOTE: The PCC catalogue lists the end time as 8:20. but we will go to 8:30.
    What drives you crazy in meetings?  What do you wish you could change in the meetings you run, or participate in? This workshop combines lively presentations on useful tools and practices with Q and A and highly interactive exercises based on actual challenges experienced by participants. It will be offered online using Zoom and Mural, and include discussion and practice of best practices and tools for facilitating remote meetings. The CRN is 16321. The cost is $39. You do need to pre-register through PCC.
  • Beyond Basics: More Tools for Experienced Meeting Facilitators on four consecutive Tuesdays from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., starting February 16th. NOTE: The PCC catalogue lists the end time as 8:50. but we will go to 9:00.
    This is a highly participatory workshop for experienced facilitators and people who’ve taken my basic workshop. We’ll explore and practice ways to work with difficult meeting dynamics, resolve conflicts, and increase creativity and collaboration. We will be using The Facilitator’s Guide to Participatory Decision-Making as a text. The CRN is 16325. The cost is $49. You do need to pre-register through PCC.

Spring Term
(Registration is not yet open as I am writing this – I’ll add CRNs, cost info etc. when it is available.)

  • How to Make Online Meetings Less Terrible, a 2 hours workshops for anybody feeling challenged by running online meetings, is Tuesday, April 8th, from 6:30 to 8:30. NOTE: The PCC catalogue lists the end time as 8:20. but we will go to 8:30.
  • Tools for Getting Unstuck on three consecutive Tuesdays starting April 20th, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. NOTE: PCC lists the end time as 8:20, but we will go to 8:30.
    Feeling stuck is an experience common to us all.  It stifles our creativity, brings up judgment and anxiety, and wastes a lot of time.  Come spend three hours in this highly interactive workshop learning some ways to get out of stuck spots, make decisions you’ll feel good about and create the forward motion you need to create the changes you desire. These techniques can be used at a personal level and in organizations (workplaces, boards, families, recreational and creative organizations, etc.).
  • Moving from Complaints to Collaboration will run two consecutive Tuesdays, May 18th and 25th, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. NOTE: PCC lists the end time as 8:20, but we will go to 8:30.
    Complaints – our own and other people’s – feel like burdens and shut us down.  Learn simple, effective ways to shift your own approach, and your organization, team, or relationship, from a dynamic of complaint to a dynamic of collaboration. This is a highly interactive, practice-based workshop. We will explore some useful framings for complaints and then try out tools for interrupting them in ways that encourage curiosity rather than defensiveness and make it easier to move forward together.

Create Your Own Workshop

If you and five (or more) other people would like a workshop, in your home or workplace or mine, or if your group would like a workshop at an event, I’d love to talk to you.  I offer many different workshops in a variety of formats and lengths.

Some recent workshops include:

  • Tools for Getting Unstuck
  • Creative Problem Solving
  • Taming Your Inner Critic
  • Moving from Complaints to Collaboration
  • Building Mutual Respect and Trust

The person who hosts gets to come for free.  Costs vary depending on the length of the workshop and the size of the group.

Want a taste of what a workshop with me is like?  You can listen to podcasts of the one-hour workshops I have offered as part of the Multnomah County Library’s Lunch and Learn series:

Questions?
If you have questions about workshops, or if you want to host a workshop or be put on a waiting list for when a workshop forms, please contact me.

I also provide workshops and training specifically designed for organizations.  You’ll find information on organizational workshops here.
