ToP Facilitation Methods Training

Whether you are brand new to facilitation or have years of experience, you will learn new and useful methods to quickly synthesize information and focus a group on the outcome they are seeking. ToP, the "Technology of Participation," is a researched-based collaborative approach to facilitating groups. It was developed by the Institute of Cultural Affairs. ToP methods recognize and honor contributions of all participants; let the group deal with more data in less time; pool individual contributions into larger more informative patterns; and welcome diversity while minimizing polarization and conflict. These methods work effectively for conflict resolution; strategic planning; consensus-building; collaborative action planning; creative problem-solving; meeting/agenda design and event planning; culture transformation; community planning and engagement; and planning/implementing collaborative ventures.

During this two-day training you will learn two foundational methods:

Focused Conversation
* Provides a structure for clear dialogue and reflection
* Probes beneath the surface to the depth of a topic
* Encourages a diversity of perspectives

Consensus Workshop Method
* Engages all group members
* Organizes the group's ideas, decisions
* Reveals the consensus in groups leading to action
* Builds effective team partnerships

If you've been part of a facilitation that uses a "sticky wall" you have experienced the inclusive participation and efficient way ideas are surfaced and organized. Instruction on the use of a sticky wall is part of the training.
