Being a leader can be difficult when you are trying to build partnerships among residents, city staff, community organizations and businesses. How effective are you at engaging your community? Our work almost always requires it. When you bring people together, are you asking the right questions? Are people listening to each other? Who is not at the table that should be? Do your facilitation skills need updating? In this workshop you will learn and practice how to hone your listening skills and how to incorporate “six conversations” that can be used to help people deeply listen to one another and take ownership for a thriving tree canopy.Cost: $35
ALL WELCOME! While workshop examples may highlight examples from those focused urban forestry topics, this facilitation skill is applicable and important for everyone, no matter your industry. All are welcome. Join us!
