Convergent Facilitation is a powerful method for helping a group make decisions collaboratively and efficiently. It taps into the group’s shared purpose, addresses privilege and power differences, finds common ground underneath conflicts, creates energetic, inspiring meetings, and leads to wholehearted agreement.

This FREE training is especially for grassroots activists and community groups.

· PRACTICE many ways to keep a meeting moving forward without leaving anyone behind - and without reinforcing power gaps
