Collaborating Online with Confidence

Are you someone who: 

  • Wants to hone their online facilitative leadership skills
  • Wants to organise and lead your remote team collaboratively
  • Manages cross functional projects virtually
  • Participates in a lot of online meetings or workshops
  • Works as a consultant, either internal or external

What our Online Collaboration and Facilitation training programme can do for you:

Our primary focus, over the course of four online sessions, is to equip participants with the practical knowledge and skills they need to work confidently with groups in online spaces.

Meeting Magic has vast experience in developing facilitation capability. Our core business is in facilitation, unlocking the collective power in groups and supporting collaboration, so we use contemporary, practical methods to share this experience and train others.

 

This is much more than just a training course. It’s a learning experience and the chance to connect with a community of like-minded practitioners.

The course outcomes include:

  • What is facilitation and when does it make sense to use it
  • An exploration of the impact collaboration has in the modern (and changing) workplace
  • An understanding of the dynamics in groups that support successful collaboration
  • Insight into processes that underlie the work done in groups
  • Facilitation skills for everyday situations
  • Tools and techniques for managing information in groups

This is achieved in a supportive environment, through a blend of approaches aimed at encouraging experiential learning.

The design of the session will be anchored around 4 key questions:

  • How can we focus a group on a common purpose and outcomes?
  • How can we encourage trust, respect and participation in groups?
  • How can we support clarity and understanding?
  • How can we support decision-making and commitment to action?

You’ll leave the programme equipped with new learning and with tools and resources to use in your ongoing practice, including a copy of The Meeting Magic Method Toolkit (RRP £97.00).

The cost is £900.00 +VAT per person or, as with all our courses, pay what you can.

We believe strongly that learning should be accessible and we invite – especially our corporate clients and participants who feel able to – to ‘pay it forward’ and support accessibility by contributing up to £1800.00.

This enables us to offer a number of scholarship spaces in every group to those who might otherwise be unable to attend.

You can sign up and choose the payment option that works for you here.

Added value

To support your application of the skills learnt in this course, we offer a reduced-rate 1:1 virtual coaching session to all training participants within three months of the course. Please state your interest in this when booking.

We can’t change the world of connection and collaboration on our own!

Meeting Magic has always focused on supporting learning and developing capability and we have a suite of offers that we deliver in-house or as open programmes.

Meet the rest

Our team attended a two part Virtual Collaboration Workshop with Meeting Magic. Kenda and Katherine guided us through some really practical ways of helping us to achieve our goals - the workshop was very hands-on allowing us to experience tools and approaches as learners whilst understanding how they work as facilitators. We would highly recommend the workshop, it has given us the confidence we needed to take the next steps in our journey. Thank you Meeting Magic.
