Workshop Overview

Relationship building and collective engagement are critical to successful multisector collaborations. This two-day workshop focuses on two facilitation models, the Group Development Model (GDM) and the Feedback Model (FM).

These models build the foundation for inclusive teamwork and support participants in implementing programming grounded in authentic relationships and equitable team engagement. This workshop is open to all who lead, facilitate, or participate in teams.

Over the Two Days, Participants Will:

  • Establish power-sharing through a transparent decision-making process.
  • Explore the models and identify how they can apply to your work and strengths.
  • Use an equity framework to diagnose and resolve group challenges.
  • Engage in interactive activities, small and large group dialogue.
