Group Facilitation Training in NYC, November/December 2012

Group facilitation methods of the Technology of Participation (ToP) are part of the NYU Wagner course "Innovative Leadership for Sustainable Human Development." Students and faculty can now learn more of the Technology of Participation (ToP) here in NYC this Fall.

Developed over 40 years by the Institute of Cultural Affairs (www.ICA-USA.org) to engage stakeholders in grassroots village settings, ToP methods are now used in organizational, business and government settings around the globe. The methods are relevant to people who work with groups that need highlevel participation to be effective, including managers and supervisors; executive directors and board members; facilitators and trainers; educators and health practitioners; and active citizens and community workers. Unproductive conflict disappears, groups create their own motivation, personal commitment and increased productivity becomes a norm, and tangible results appear more quickly. 

Technology of Participation NYC (www.NYCTOP.org) is offering two trainings for Fall 2012: ToP Facilitation Methods (TFM): Nov 28-29 (W-Th) and ToP Strategic Planning (TSP) Facilitation: Dec 1-2 (Sa-Su). For course info & registration go to: http://www.top.ica-usa.org/eventcat.php?id=1 Registrar: liselburns@gmail.com for local information and answers to questions.
