PDG event | Facilitation tools and tactics to get more people talking

with Nina Sunday

Thursday 09 May 2019 | Sydney

Psychological safety is a sense of confidence that if someone speaks up during a meeting, they will not be embarrassed, judged or belittled for voicing their opinion. Recent research identified that conversational equality is a key factor to cultivating an atmosphere conducive to authentic discussion and healthy debate.

What tools and tactics create psychological safety to get more people talking, not just the vocal ones? What facilitation methods cultivate better group dynamics?

During her presentation she will outline a range of tools and methods to facilitate group meetings including leading from the front, influencing language, using convincers, 4-Mat, VAK thinking style, Sinek’s Golden Circle, Open Space Technology, Effort vs. Payoff and more.
