    If you’re engaging with the public, it’s inevitable that at some point you will encounter conversations that challenge you. They may be conversations you’re already thinking about with dread or concern, or situations you don’t even anticipate that blind side you in the moment. What do you do, how do you react, how do you pull these situations out of the fire and move forward productively? This course provides a frame for understanding why these situations exist, strategies to use and an opportunity to practice new ways.

    In addition to the live, interactive training participants will also receive pre-session activities, self-assessments, a personal learning journal and additional learning resources.

    Does this sound like your project?

    • The issue is incredibly complex.
    • You are surrounded by outrage and controversy.
    • You expect lots of high emotion and anger at your next meeting.

    Then, this is the course for you!

    Building on IAP2’s Strategies for Outrage and Opposition (but not a pre-requisite), this highly participatory course will have participants uncover what’s driving emotion and outrage in P2 processes and discover what triggers these natural responses. Through exercises, discussion and multi-media presentation, participants will learn about AND PRACTICE highly effective, collaborative strategies to transform conflict and outrage and create an environment for constructive engagement.

    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 into 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!
