A group is more than the collection of individuals, and a system is more than the sum of its parts.
Systems Facilitation allows multiple stakeholders to find a meaningful direction to take and to keep acting, deciding, and learning together. This training course will be a deep dive learning experience where we explore working in multi-stakeholder environments characterized by complex relationships, diverse agendas and differences in power-levels.
Through case studies, group work and peer exchange, this course will support participants in designing and facilitating short- and long-term collaboration processes that are aimed at co-creating a shared understanding, a knowledge system, solutions and decisions.
The training course is intended for practitioners, trainers, facilitators who have some experience working with various stakeholders within their specific contexts.
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.
Participants will leave this experiential online training course with:
- Insight into applying systems innovation mindset and tools in multi-stakeholder environments to better understand stakeholder needs;
- Methods to create a safe working and learning environment to unlock collective creativity and foster emergence;
- Process and approaches to create alignment and transform conflict into learning opportunities for the system through mediation and conflict transformation;
- Insight into managing challenges such as resistance to change, disengagement, loud voices, opposing interests and power imbalances;
- An ability to design adaptive but goal-oriented group processes that build bridges between different stakeholders and move participants from individual to collective agency;
- Approaches to coach others for and in their multi-stakeholder projects.
