World Café Conversations: A Powerful Method to Support Community Systems Development

On Tuesday, September 12th from 12pm-1pm, Chris Foster will be conducting a webinar called Word Café. World Café is a popular group facilitation method for engaging stakeholders in conversations that matter. In this webinar, we will explore how it can serve our community system development efforts.

Whether you are a new or an experienced facilitator of café conversations, you will gain helpful tips on how to design, host, and harvest the collective intelligence that can emerge when using this method. We will revisit the core principles and aspects of the methodology that are often overlooked but have the greatest influence on the outcome of the conversations.
