Today, we are having more necessary conversations but we are not necessarily having them in the most civil manner. As a result, our words are multiplying while our union is dividing, all because of our tendency to subtract basic listening and communication skills from our thoughts and feelings. As such, organizations require culture facilitators who are adept at moving people from screaming pitchforks to healthy discourse while exploring and resolving root issues to culture challenges. But how does someone facilitate such difficult discussions? What are the necessary traits and tools?
- Comprehend the competencies and traits required to do culture facilitation.
- Distinguish culture facilitation from strategic or team building facilitation.
- Recognize what culture is, and isn’t, and this understanding can help assess and resolve culture issues.
The workshop will be facilitated with the two facilitators asking questions, taking in responses and making connections to maximize inclusion and learning. Participants will be provided links to articles that provide quick-hitting information and tips with regards to understanding culture and being a strong culture facilitator.
