Learning to facilitate a dialogue
22 oktober 19:00 - 22:00
Now that we are organizing more and more dialogues in english, it is time to host a training in facilitating these dialogues. Ever wonder how you can start and encourage an engaging conversation about sometimes sensitive topics? How you can ask the right questions and provide structure? You will learn it during this workshop! To sign up, press the red button above.
The purpose of facilitating a guided conversation is to stimulate thinking, growth, and change that lead to action. The more you practice being invitational in holding a conversation, the more often you will experience positive results from your conversations with others.
We invite you to take part in this training session, where you will practice facilitating a dialogue and experience its value. During the training you will get to know what an engaging dialogue is and how it is structured. A dialogue follows four steps: 1) getting acquainted 2) sharing and exchanging one’s experiences 3) envisioning new possibilities 4) formulating concrete actions.
In addition, we will be examining several skills that you will be able to incorporate into your daily conversations. The important skills present in facilitating conversations involve active listening and asking the ‘right’ questions. To practice these skills in-depth we will focus on the following:
- Familiarize with the dialogue method.
- Work on the three essential skills for holding a dialogue: committed listening, posing the right questions, and giving reflective feedback.
After this training session, you have the tools to facilitate a dialogue. You can practice with a more experienced dialogue facilitator or come and practice at one of our events.
The costs for the training are: 10€ for students/U-pas holders, 50€ for non-students and 150€ for organizations.
If money is a problem we are happy to discuss an alternative contribution!
