P10 Facilitation: Ten Principles for Leading Meetings that Matter 14/15 October 2024A Learning Workshop with Sandra Janoff and Michael Donnelly

Unleash the Power of effective Facilitation with P10 Training

All of the important decisions we make in society are done in meetings. We all participate in meetings and many of us lead them. We have created a way of learning how to facilitate that works with groups, and not against them. The Principles enable any meeting leader to design their meetings by paying attention to structure and paying attention to how they show up. In this workshop, you will learn to manage the meeting and manage yourself. Learn to lead more while controlling less.

We call our approach to facilitation the P10 Approach – 10 Principles for Leading Meetings that Matter. It is developed by Sandra Janoff and Marv Weisbord and based on the Ten Principles in Don’t Just Do Something, Stand There!

The Training is part of a series of 3 Future Search events taking place from 9 – 17 October 2024. Find a print friendly overview here.
