This workshop is for people that yearn to work more skillfully together to create supportive communities, grounded leadership, and impactful results. The workshop provides tools to address the challenges for which there are no finish lines.
Together participants will work with, not against, complexity though the Cynefin framework, and learn two engagement methodologies; World Café, and the Circle Way.
The Cynefin framework explores four types of environments: simple, complicated, complex, and chaotic, and the differing leadership approaches needed in each.
World Café is a method for creating many small table conversations, four to five people per table, and then interweaving these to form a larger conversation with the whole group. Small tables are often the places where traditions and movements are born. This process is less intimidating than a large group conversation, and far more energizing and invigorating. World Café is a way of deliberately connecting groups from 16 to 1,600 through ideas, stories, plans, and energy.
The Circle Way is a practice that helps participants shift from informal socializing or opinionated discussion into a receptive attitude of thoughtful speaking and deep listening.
Who should attend: Community Organizers, Activists, Engaged Citizens
