10-Session Series Offers Fresh Ideas, New Tools & Approaches to Improve Facilitation Skills 

WASHINGTON, DC – Consultants, managers, and coaches within organizations who use facilitation in their work will have the opportunity to gain some new skills and insights from MAFN’s signature DC Workshop Series beginning September 26, 2014. Featuring speakers from around the country and the Mid-Atlantic Region, the sessions will cover a wide range of topics from an overview of organizational development tools to marketing and promoting facilitation to building cultural competency to Clean Language and Systemic Modeling to using data to drive conversations that lead to change to harnessing the creative force of resistance.

The series consists of 10, three-hour interactive sessions that are designed for continuing education and skills development. The sessions support the profession’s core competencies as outlined by the International Association of Facilitators (IAF).

“MAFN’s Workshop Series brings together people from across the region who are interested in honing their skills as facilitators, whether they are consultants, trainers or working in-house at their organizations. MAFN is a dynamic and collaborative learning community and the workshop series offers a rare opportunity to connect with peers and develop new skills in facilitation on a regular basis,” said Michael Randel, CPF, and Chairman of MAFN.
