    Planning and delivering effective meetings requires the ability to adjust to changing conditions. Experienced facilitators know that even the most carefully planned sessions can go off the rails. It’s essential for facilitators to develop the ability to hold their scripts loosely and to be nimble at the front of the room. They need the skills required to adapt to the unexpected, while maintaining a laser-sharp focus on achieving the session’s objectives.

    Participants will learn from the presenter’s 20+ years of stories, examples and experience of coping with the unexpected, equipping them with tips and tools to avoid similar mistakes.

    Learning Objectives

    Participants will:

    • Learn top notch preparation habits to minimize the unexpected.

    • Gain specific tips and habits to adapt to whatever happens in the room, including keeping things on track and steering them back there when they threaten to go off course.

    • Identify follow-up techniques to mitigate and learn from sessions that seem to have gone off the rails.

    Agenda

    1. Introduction
    2. What is facilitation?
      1. Question 1: How often do you use facilitation skills in your current role?
      2. Question 2: How would you describe your current level of confidence with facilitation?
      3. 4 Rs of Nimble Facilitation
      4. Relationships
      5. Readiness
        • Know yourself
        • Know your scope
        • Know your space
        • Know your script
        • Know your meeting
        • Know your “mojo”
      6. Recovery
      7. Reflection
      8. Recap
      9. Questions

    Please note that this is an adaptation of the longer Nimble Facilitator course.

    Reaching as many people as effectively as possible is vital in any public participation process, and that's especially true when an area is demographically diverse. The city of Surrey, BC, had to reach out to a wide range of ethnicities and interests in updating its Parks, Recreation and Culture Strategy. So did TriMet, the public transportation agency serving the Portland, Oregon, region, as it expanded a transit service through neighborhoods of historically under-represented residents. Join us and find out how these processes accomplished it: they won the IAP2 Canada and IAP2 USA (respectively) Core Values Awards for Respect for Diversity, Inclusion and Culture.

    Does this sound familiar?

    Are your projects failing to move forward  because of public opposition? Are you faced with an angry public at meetings? Is decision-making stalled because of polarized viewpoints?

    Continuing to do the same thing over and over again expecting a different result isn’t helping. It’s time to understand what is triggering the outrage and opposition so you can work with it, address it and find new ways of moving forward.

    Revamping an entire country's criminal justice system ... building an energy pipeline through 10 counties ... huge scenarios with the potential to disrupt thousands - millions - of lives. In both cases, the proponents recognized the many ways people would be affected, and determined to engage the public at every stage, in order to achieve the best results all around.

    In Canada, the Federal Department of Justice received over 10,000 contributions in a three-month period on the question, "How would you change our criminal justice system to better serve Canadians?" Two months after the public dialogue ended, the government announced a series of changes to the system that addressed some of the concerns raised in that dialogue.

    Justice Canada received the 2018 IAP2 Canada Core Values Award for "Creativity, Contribution and Innovation in the Field", and was also named Project of the Year.

    Read the Core Values Award submission here.

    In the USA, Williams Energy and Outreach Experts launched a huge public engagement campaign surrounding the building of the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project. Since ten counties in Eastern Pennsylvania were in the path of the pipeline, Williams set out to make sure all interests were considered and addressed; dozens of route changes were made as a result of the consultations, and numerous grassroots organizations were part of the conversation.

    Williams, the Williams Foundation and Outreach Experts received the 2018 General Project Award at the IAP2 USA Core Values Awards and Atlantic Sunrise was also named project of the Year.

    Encouraging members of the public to take part in an engagement process is challenging. How do you provide them with the information they need to make an informed decision without bogging them down with data, policy and jargon? For that matter, how do you attract their attention in the first place?

    The Visual Engagement Awards -- a new Core Values Award presented by IAP2 Canada in conjunction with the Dazzling Notice Awards -- rewards public entities which have made that extra effort to get people's attention and make sure their many voices are heard. In 2018, the first awards went to the Region of Waterloo, Ontario, for its Biosolids Strategy, and the District of Squamish, BC, for its Official Community Plan Update.

    Que ce soit par obligation légale, par orientation politique ou par approche volontaire, la mise en place de comités de suivi est devenue une pratique reconnue et un véhicule de participation publique répandu. Ces comités de suivi, qu’ils soient à l’égard d’un projet spécifique ou d’une organisation, au Québec comme ailleurs, prennent diverses formes, divers noms, regroupent différents représentants et ont des objectifs multiples. Il importe néanmoins de respecter les fondements éthiques et les règles de l’art en la matière pour assurer une adhésion au processus et une participation efficace. Malgré les premières apparences, mettre en place un comité de suivi n’est pas une mince tâche. La formation permettra donc aux participants, à travers les bases théoriques et les cas pratiques, de cheminer dans les coulisses de la mise sur pied et la gestion d’un comité de suivi.

    Facilitation skills are essential for public engagement professionals. Masterful facilitation involves more than group process techniques and strong meeting design – it also requires anticipation skills and adaptability. This highly interactive, fun-filled session strengthens participants' ability to trust their intuition, think on their feet and deal with unpredictable situations. When a facilitated session goes off the rails (and it will), you need to tap a different skillset to bring things back on track quickly. Neurological evidence, real-life experience and useful improv tools will equip you to become more nimble and confident from the front of the room. No comedy skills required!

    P2 continues to evolve from one-time events to a culture of engagement. Just like our physical roads, bridges, and pipes, our P2 “infrastructure” needs a solid framework to deliver meaning and value. To support that evolution, participants assess the strengths and weaknesses of P2 infrastructure including local policies, professional practices, resources and capabilities, and performance -- grounded in IAP2 Core Values/Code of Ethics. Working in teams, participants assess their communities using a robust P2 Audit Worksheet with critical questions and clear guidance; learn to interpret their findings; and draw from best practices, case studies, and innovations to create an Action Plan to upgrade P2 infrastructure.
