What: Effective Groups with Transition Network’s Nick Osborne
Where: Culver City
When: Saturday & Sunday, October 5 – 6, 2013, from 9:30am – 5:30 pm
The Effective Groups weekend workshop is Nick’s labor of love for Transition Initiatives – helping Transition Initiatives develop facilitation skills and tools to navigate the ups/downs of the various phases of group development – forming, storming, norming & performing.
Check out this video * for more info on Nick’s methodology.
Effective Groups comes from integrating 20 years experience of working in social change projects, intentional communities and ecovillages and conventional and cutting edge organizational and leadership models. It is open to anyone involved in any kind of social change work, with preference given to groups using the Transition model to inform their work.
Nick will also be offering a one-day Effective Groups Train the Trainer workshop on October 7. Train the Trainer workshops are intended for people who already have training and facilitation skills who want to deepen their understanding of the material and use it to train other Transition Initiatives and social change organizations. Participants in the Monday workshop must attend the weekend workshop and meet criteria which demonstrate they are already experienced group facilitators and trainers.
