Participatory Methods

Participatory Facilitation Methods

MNToP’s courses and array of support opportunities allow a wide choice of professional paths, all beginning with an introduction to participatory facilitation methods. The core “gateway” training is the two-day ToP Facilitation Methods. Two other courses in this category will equip the ToP facilitator with initial core skills to proceed with their facilitation journey.

Course Objectives: Learn three proven ways to activate group participation. Hands-on practice helps you discover practical uses in your life and work. Participants work individually and in small groups to see the ToP Methods in action, and then have the opportunity to practice facilitating in class.

Course Objectives: Use color and simple images to bring clarity and energy to your facilitation. Explore ways to add imagery and graphics to your facilitation, training, consulting, or coaching toolkit. Tap into the power of visual thinking and learning skills (how nearly 90% of adults learn best). Learn to combine words and visuals to communicate more deeply and dramatically.

Course Objectives: Shake up the creative mind, frame and reframe problems and dilemmas, develop innovative strategies
