Descrição

Background

The convergence of two driving forces - the need for remote collaboration and the growing adoption of interdepartmental teams and group work - has created a market space for various digital tools for remote collaboration (Trello, Mural, Nureva Span, GroupMap, among others).

Since the 1990s, I have been using these digital tools to facilitate groups, and I am witnessing how they strongly impact the effectiveness of a meeting and the involvement of its participants.

However, the "secret of success" is to adopt a leadership style that enables team members to lead themselves. In this course we will create several active experimental sessions - a living lab - where various group processes will be virtually hosted, focusing on problem solving and group decision making.

At the end of this workshop, participants will reflect on the experience, learning how the values ​​of group facilitation can help the practice of facilitative leadership.

How to lead and facilitate virtual teams?

There are many obstacles to leading and facilitating a virtual team when all meetings are online and participant involvement is less than ideal. But any leader who organizes an online meeting with a virtual team can overcome all of these usual pains and achieve more effective results by adopting digital group facilitation tools and facilitative leadership.

On the other hand, the adoption of these new digital facilitation tools makes it possible to design a new kind of hybrid meetings in which the usual difference between participants in the room and at a distance almost disappears and everyone participates effectively.

Objectives of this course:

- Identify the main types of digital tools for group facilitation and understand their impacts on collaborative work.

- Experience the dynamics of problem solving and decision making with a remote team.

- Learn more about the values ​​of group facilitation and their impact on more effective leadership

Target audience

This training course is designed for public, private and NGOs' team leaders, multi-sectoral group leaders, advisers on complex development processes and responsible for driving participation; group facilitators interested in improving their use of digital tools.

Learners will gain insight into digital tools designed to turn unproductive meetings and projects into dynamic meetings and successful workshops, and how they can be used in practice to deliver services to their internal or external clients.

Contents

This course will take the form of a living laboratory where the learning needs of each participant are captured and participatory learning processes will be designed focused on practical results.
