Over 40 participants gathered to the learn The Art and Skill of Facilitation from experts in the field. Keynote speaker Jeanne Hartley reminded us of the many important skills needed to be a successful facilitator and then sent everyone off to work on those skills! The 90 minute sessions ranged from facilitating experiential learning to facilitating team building. Skills included bringing more awareness your facilitation sessions and taming difficult people you may encounter along the way. The learning continued with tools on facilitating the decision making process of a group and then using new research on how the brain works in appreciative facilitation! The remarkable day of learning ended with a wrap up of the mini-conference with a celebration of the community that was created on Saturday.
