Skilled facilitation is key for effective philanthropic leaders, whether you are raising money or giving it away. From staff meetings to board meetings, from grantee convenings to funder collaboratives, being able to confidently lead meetings of all types strengthens your work and makes it more productive and enjoyable. There are concrete skills and philosophical approaches that skilled facilitation brings that helps - in a power-laden field - truly equalize dialogue, give under-represented voices greater power, and bring together diverse stakeholders working towards shared visions. During this webinar, Janice Simsohn Shaw shared with us the specific tools and frameworks that make her such a skilled facilitator.
