A group is more than the collection of individuals, and a system is more than the sum of its parts.
This fast-paced online training course will focus on designing and facilitating multi-stakeholder processes as part of system innovation work. Through case studies, practice and group work, we will explore the stages and aspects of working in multi-stakeholder settings, as well as creating alignment, acting, deciding, and learning together.
The training course is intended for practitioners, trainers, facilitators who have some experience working with various stakeholders. It is most fitting for participants seeking to revise their mindset, align their approach, experiment, learn, and share with others. The training course offers an ideal opportunity to plan and practice multi-stakeholder work before launching or continuing a real-life project.
This Train-the-Trainer course takes place within the frame of the Climate-KIC Network of Climate Coaches. Interested to learn more about the Network of Coaches? Have a look here.
