Virtual - Facilitation Basics for Coastal Managers

Course Description

Productive meetings are essential to effectively plan for and manage the diverse interests and needs in our coastal communities. In this course, participants will learn basic facilitation skills, tools to engage participants, and techniques for dealing with disruptive behaviors. Class time is provided to practice using tools and skills to plan and facilitate meetings that accomplish objectives while minimizing conflict. Participants at every level are welcome, since these new skills will be useful even when attending, but not running, a meeting.

The Office for Coastal Management offers an in-person, classroom version of this course, available when travel and in-person gatherings are feasible.
