Who is this workshop for?
Do you want to organize a dialogue, but haven’t done so before? Or would you like to design and shape a dialogue (series) with others? In this workshop you will work together with the appreciative design and shaping of dialogues. Together you can develop an interesting theme, more powerful program, and ensure more diversity at the table to facilitate a richer dialogue. We get to know each other’s dreams, talents, and can create a valuable dialogue (series) for participants.
Learn from each other
We reflect on practical experiences, what our goals are, what is needed to make dialogues a success, as well as themes and questions that play a role. The workshop is built according to the principles of the appreciative approach: from exploring and sharing, to imagining, shaping and realising. We learn from positive experiences and use the power of our dreams to move forward. We explore ideals, possible themes and goals, share beautiful experiences to come to a unified vision. We will design the structure of the dialogue, and learn about the process of organising and conducting a successful dialogue.
