March 14, 2016 – GreenerU, in partnership with our hosts, Columbia University and Johns Hopkins University, is excited to announce a new workshop series this summer: Facilitation for Organizational Change (this event has closed). These one-day workshops provide higher education professionals with an outstanding opportunity to develop the essential facilitation skillsets to support organizational change on their campus.
The workshop will provide a theoretical overview of the psychology of leadership and group dynamics to emphasize the important role of a facilitator in fostering group consensus. Participants will also have ample time to practice facilitating meetings through fun and interactive activities and receive constructive feedback from the group in a safe environment.
