Planning and Facilitating Collaborative Meetings (NOAA Training)

Provided by the NOAA Office for Coastal Management, this two-day instructor-led course is designed to increase participants’ ability to plan and facilitate a meeting (or a series of meetings) that minimize conflict and enhance problem solving. Collaboration is often cited as a good way to address coastal resource management issues, but the collaborative process is complicated, requiring a systematic approach. This course provides the skills and tools to design and implement collaborative approaches. The skills will be useful even when attending, but not running, a collaborative meeting.

Classes can be taught at the NOAA Office for Coastal Management training facility or brought to your organization.
