Core Training #5 – Connect as a group

Ecstatic Meetings & Decision-Making

Meetings and decision-making can make or break your group. You’ll learn how to have productive, creative meetings, distribute power, and hear every voice, including those who are too often not heard. You’ll also learn processes for effective, collective decision-making.

Our trainer will work with you on meeting processes that build relationships, effectiveness, and inclusion.

Groups of 6-25 people who are working together locally — both new and established groups.

You can take this as a stand-alone course, or as part of six core trainings.

Training Outcomes

 

You’ll come away with:

  • Skills and processes that make for good meetings.
  • An assessment of your current governance practices and how you can build a healthier group culture.
  • Practices for group decision-making
  • Tools and strategies for anti-oppressive and anti-racist meetings and decision making
  • How to know when to diverge, converge or move forward.

Cost

 

PeoplesHub is committed to making trainings accessible, regardless of ability to pay. We are also dedicated to fair compensation for our trainers, who, like you, have worked hard for change in their communities. We use a sliding scale of $200 – $600 per training to ensure our trainings are accessible to groups with a wide range of resources, and to allow folks to “pay it forward” so that other groups may experience high-quality training at a lower cost.

If cost is a significant barrier for your group, please contact us and we can talk about how to make your training happen.  

What do you do to prepare?

 

Please choose one or two people to work with the trainer on setting a time, establishing an internet link, and managing the space where you’ll meet.

You’ll just need a place to gather; a laptop or desktop computer; and some curiosity. Maybe some hummus and pita.

 

Note: if you don’t have a computer, talk to us about other devices that may work.
