    Duration: 3-hour workshop (includes a little networking time)

    As facilitators, our job is to help diverse groups come together, negotiate differences, and craft solutions that stick. Too often, however, group members nod their heads, but don’t really agree. Their concerns go under the surface. Occasionally, these concerns become conflicts so large that they threaten to divide a team or undermine a project. In order to achieve real commitment—and to create spaces in which people can disagree and share divergent perspectives safely—we need new methods and tools. 

    In this session, participants learn about the Lewis Method of Deep Democracy, which was developed in South Africa after the fall of apartheid to help organizations recover from the legacy of racism. We will share three Deep Democracy tools: a facilitator-friendly method for surfacing differences in a group, a tool for diagnosing resistance, and a method for working with conflict.

    Afterwards, if time permits, we may have time for open discussion and networking.

    Learning Objectives 

    In this session, participants will:

      • Learn how a Conversation in Motion can surface perspectives and uncover hidden issues
      • Use the Resistance Line to identify and diagnose hidden resistance


        Practice the Debate tool for leading a group safely through a conflict

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

    This is a 3-hour online workshop. It will take place from 12:00pm to 3pm EDT.

    About the workshop

    What does it take to be an impactful facilitator? How do you know if your facilitation has made an impact? What does impact mean? for whom?

    In this session you will hear from three experienced MAFN members, with different backgrounds, whose client's facilitation work has been nominated and given an IAF Facilitation Impact Award. These panelists reported significant learnings from the submission and evaluation process which helped them become more aware of all the elements and different criteria that exist for  the results of their interventions to be considered impactful.

    This session will give participants an opportunity to hear from our guest speakers and among each other what their experiences have been in connection to making an impact in the work they do, whether big or small.

    Learning Objectives


    In this session, participants will:
        - Become aware of how different stakeholders might measure impact differently
        - Discuss what “impact” means to you, and how your peers’ perceptions of impact might differ
        - Reflect on ways we might continue to create the proper conditions for impact to happen

    About the workshop

    With so much uncertainty, how do you help your clients and organizations strategize and prepare for the unknown? One way is applying Scenario Planning. This process focuses on developing strategies based on “scenarios” of potential futures. This allows an organization to be strategically responsive and resilient should those potential futures occur (like a Pandemic!). During this interactive workshop, you will learn about Scenario Planning while also experiencing a facilitation structure for this effort.  

    Learning Objectives 

    In this session, participants will:

    •  - Learn and try out the key steps of this process

    •  - Explore, discuss, and share its merits and ideas for potential uses.  

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

    This is a 3-hour online workshop. It will take place from 12:00pm to 3pm EST.

    About the workshop

    Sketchnoting 101 is an interactive, 3-hour workshop dedicated to learning the art of visual notetaking. In this workshop, you will learn The Four Skills of Sketchnoting (listening, writing, drawing, and design) and practice each skill with both group and individual exercises. At the end of the workshop, we'll put all the skills together and practice sketchnoting together. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and get feedback throughout. This is a "participate and practice" kind of workshop, not a "sit back and watch" kind of workshop, so bring plenty of paper (loose-leaf or notebook), a black pen, a pencil, and a few color markers of your choice.

       - Learn The Four Skills of Sketchnoting
       - Practice each skill with group and individual exercises
       - Explore and experience the art of visual notetaking

    About the workshop

    Most models of facilitation and leadership are inherently left-brain. Yet, people and groups follow anything but cause and effect, linear thinking. Behavior often springs from right-brain, subconscious sources that challenge even the most skilled leader or facilitator. 

    To lead successfully requires leaders to be the change they want to see in others. Culture will continue to eat strategy for lunch unless the leader has sufficient awareness to see past the blind spots residing at the individual, group and collective levels. 

    This workshop explores working with a system from a place of expanded awareness that opens up new possibilities for change. 

    Afterwards, we will leave time for open discussion and networking.

    Learning Objectives 

    In this session, participants will leave with:

    • Enhanced ability to lead and facilitate challenging situations where there is no school or textbook solution

      Greater comfort with "not knowing" and getting to the "story behind the story" where real change can emerge

      Greater access to the Use of Self that is not constrained by assumptions and blind spots 


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

    This is a 3-hour online workshop. It will take place from 12:00pm to 3pm EST.

    About the workshop

    “It’s a skill; it’s a choice.”
    You Can Make Trust Happen

    "Trust" is an elusive concept. It means different things to different people, and sometimes it takes on a “know-it-when-you-see-it" or "don't-see-it" quality. In this workshop, Dr. Jerome S. Paige and Dr. Cynthia O. Pace share their views on what gives "trust" its "ineffable" quality by elaborating how "trust" "co-appears" with self-trusting, trusting, trustworthiness, trust relationships, and trust structures.

    If we understand it, we can get better at choosing "to trust" or not. In other words, we are free to choose.  Moreover, when trust happens, team members strengthen their relationships and eliminate second-guessing in the workplace.  

    Once participants understand the five dimensions of trust, they realize that trust is a choice and a skill. In addition, they recognize that they can enhance their ability and capacity to make wise trust choices. Furthermore, they know how to work better together

    Learning Objectives 

    In this session, participants will:

    • Explore the Five Dimensions of Trust

    • Define/Discuss the Importance of The Five Dimensions of Trust in the Workplace

    • Reflect Why Trust Behaviors are Important to You and Your Clients

    • Practice Trust Building Activities

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

    This is a 3-hour online workshop. It will take place from 12:00pm to 3pm EST.

    Dr. Jerome Paige (www.paigeandassociates.com) is an economics, business, and organizational consultant, with over 40 years of experience in higher education, public sector, and non-profit organizations.  He holds a master’s and a doctorate in economics from the American University and a B.A. degree in economics from Howard University. He is the principal in his firm, Jerome S. Paige & Associates, LLC. Dr. Paige is a “Five Behaviors Authorized Partner” and a “DiSC® Certified Trainer.” He is also a trained meditation instructor in the tradition of iRest® (Integrative Restoration) and offers meditation workshops.

    Jerome S. Paige & Associates provides organizational consulting services in strategic planning, business development, performance measurement & management, and change management.  We assist them in demonstrating how they create and deliver value. Since we bring a fresh perspective to organizational performance, we provide leaders and managers with clear and easily graspable concepts to apply to ensure their organizations are mission-driven, opportunity-seeking, outcomes-based, and results-oriented. 

    A key focus of our organizational consulting work is around the four elements of “trust” -- mind states, behaviors, relationships, and structures. Why?  Fast-moving and change-focused organizations do not have time for “second-guessing,” and since “trust” helps eliminate “second-guessing,” it becomes for us “the glue that holds an organization together.” Thus, the importance of Wiley’s “The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team” in our work. We approach “trust” as if it’s an “inherent quality.” “Trust” Happens!” when its dimensions align, and we help organizations attain that alignment.

    About the workshop

    As facilitators and consultants it’s essential for us to hear and understand what truly lies beneath our clients’ behavior, concerns and decisions. What really motivates them? What are their triggers and hot buttons? What sends them into conflict and what opens them up? In this informative, interactive workshop participants will learn the coaching method for listening and exploring others’ values, motivations and drivers (using the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI) assessment model), which will help them to better assess client needs, circumvent possible resistance and to build stronger relationships.

    Learning Objectives 

    In this session, participants will:

    • Develop keener awareness and appreciation of their own and others’ motivational styles, related strengths and corresponding blind spots

      Explore, observe and practice coaching listening skills

      Increase ability to recognize, communicate with and facilitate individuals and groups including different motivation styles

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