Event Description

Are you tired of running meetings that don’t lead to results? Are you frustrated with participants who are not focused on the issue? Do you find it difficult to keep meetings on topic? Do your meetings get ‘hijacked’? Do you want buy-in from the group you are working with? Then this training might be just what you need. You can’t change the people you work with, but you can change the way you work with them.

In a hands-on, interactive training environment you will learn the skills and techniques necessary to facilitate large and small group discussions in a number of contexts. We will show you how to:

  • structure and set up a meeting
  • create a safe space for creative interaction
  • be aware of and work with group dynamics
  • use active listening techniques to encourage group conversation
  • respond to criticism in a productive way
  • handle conflict in a group setting
  • use decision-making methods to reach results

Soft skills like the ones above are essential in the modern workplace. After this training you will be able to run effective meetings, access group creativity, and facilitate large groups with ease.

In Pursuit of a Shared Humanity

LISC stands in unity with the protests that are sweeping our country, and their core message—that every life is sacred, says Maurice A. Jones, LISC’s president and CEO, in a video message. We are committed, he affirms, to continuing the work to dismantle structural racism and create an equitable America for all.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.
