Planning and Facilitating Collaborative Meetings

Tuesday, June 7 and Wednesday, June 8, 2016
St. Jones Reserve Coastal Training Center
818 Kitts Hummock Road
Dover, DE 19901

This two-day instructor-led course from the NOAA Office of Coastal Management is designed to increase participants’ ability to plan and facilitate a meeting (or a series of meetings) that minimize conflict and enhance problem solving. Collaboration is often cited as a good way to address coastal resource management issues, but the collaborative process is complicated, requiring a systematic approach. This course provides the skills and tools to design and implement collaborative approaches. The skills will be useful even when attending, but not running, a collaborative meeting. 

What you will learn
After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Determine if a collaborative process is appropriate
  • Select people with the skill sets needed to fill each meeting role
  • Learn and practice facilitation skills
  • Use appropriate process tools and techniques to address the meeting objectives
  • Manage conflict in meetings by understanding group dynamics
  • Identify disruptive behaviors in group processes and practice strategies to deal with them.

Jan Kucklick, NOAA Office for Coastal Management
