    About the workshop

    Visuals are central to facilitating engaging meetings, but many facilitators and trainers lack a strong design muscle. Stop making boring, meaningless slide decks and start bringing visuals into your meetings in a fun, purposeful and creative way that will have a real impact on improving the outcomes of your meeting.

    This workshop is a teaser-version of Voltage Control's latest course "Introduction to Facilitating with Visuals".

    Learning Objectives 

    In this workshop, participants will:

    • Learn the five things every facilitator should be able to draw

    • Explore design principles that can be applied to visual templates and MURAL board designs

    NOTE: This workshop will be recorded for distribution to all who register (breakout rooms will not be recorded).

    This is a 90-minute online workshop. It will take place from 12:00pm to 1:30pm EDT.

    Speakers:

    As a certified virtual facilitator, certified coach, experienced visual note-taker and effective leadership development trainer, Lauren Green believes in the power of visualization to support productive and dynamic group processes and knowledge management. Lauren has an extensive toolkit of modalities for designing inclusive, engaging and productive sessions, whether they are held in person, online or in a hybrid/blended format.

    Lauren is the owner and executive director of Dancing with Markers®, a team of visual practitioners who hold space for individuals, teams and organizations, as they work towards their vision and achieve their goals. Lauren holds a master’s degree in Organization Development and Knowledge Management from George Mason University.

    Duration: 90-minute workshop

    About the workshop

    We’ve seen the strategic plans built painfully by a few, and ignored by all. We’ve seen plans break with unexpected events. Complex contexts require dynamic, adaptive strategy making and doing authored and owned by everyone, and fit for changing conditions. Join us to explore Knotworking, a strategy that weaves data and peoples’ stories into a coherent whole, grounded in data and relatable through stories. Explore the six compelling Knotworking questions and practice some of the processes to answer them using Liberating Structures, open source methods that spark lively engagement by minimally structuring the way we interact while liberating content and expertise.

    Learning Objectives

    In this session, participants will:

           Explore adaptive strategy making versus fixed strategy making.

           Explore the six Knotworking questions for strategy making and doing (and other useful purposes!)

          Experience 2-3 Liberating Structures as processes useful for adaptive strategy making 

     NOTE: This workshop will be recorded for distribution to all who register (breakout rooms will not be recorded).

    This is a 90-minute online workshop. It will take place from 12:00pm to 1:30pm EST.

    Speaker:

    Nancy White helps organizations connect, learn and deliver results. Her practice includes online and offline interaction design, facilitator, and graphic facilitation. She focuses on NGOs, NPOs, government and communities. Nancy inventively weaves together process and theory to advance practices with people, putting learning at the center with achieving results. She is a passionate practitioner of Liberating Structures.

    Nancy blogs at http://www.fullcirc.com/ and is co-author with Etienne Wenger and John D. Smith of “Digital Habitats: stewarding technology for communities.” (http://www.technologyforcommunities.com).

    About the workshop

    In this workshop, we will focus on helping every member of a team differentiate between healthy and unhealthy conflict; the bottom-line cost to avoiding conflict; and how each person can support a constructive conflict culture.

    Learning Objectives

    In this session, participants will:

    • · Participants will increase their awareness of conflict and how it can be used for dynamic facilitation
    • · Participants will leave with an understanding of the different conflict management styles and how they can affect group dynamics
    • · Participants will leave with mediation-based tools and techniques to more productively resolve conflict when it arises

    NOTE: This workshop will be recorded for distribution to all who register (breakout rooms will not be recorded).

    This is a 90-minute online workshop. It will take place from 12:00pm to 1:30pm EDT.

    Speaker:

    Natalie Garramone is the Owner and Principal Consultant at ONE EIGHTY.

    HERE'S WHAT YOU THINK YOU NEED TO KNOW...

    For the past decade, Natalie has worked as a consultant with executive teams—both nationally and internationally—to develop strategies aimed at fostering growth and innovation, shifting organizational culture, and engaging employees.

    She has driven large-scale change and innovation initiatives inside Fortune 500 companies alongside sales, customer service, R&D, and new product innovation teams, to name a few.

    She has certifications in mediation, mindfulness-based stress reduction (MSBR), and yoga instruction (200RYT).

    She was promoted to CEO before the age of 30.

    HERE’S WHAT YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW:

    As a child, Natalie was the one to raise her hand with “just one more question.” Never satisfied with a standard response, she wanted to know more, learn more, do more. That innate curiosity and insatiable craving for informed action powers her today.

    She has the rare ability to toggle seamlessly between big-picture thinking and in-the-weeds execution. She listens, digests, and synthesizes information on the spot, reflecting back key points while remaining remarkably objective.

    She truly likes people. She loves figuring out what motivates them. And she believes their intellect and spirit have limitless power to drive business outcomes.

    She is often described with the same select adjectives. Unflappable, intelligent, diplomatic, and level-headed are among them.
