Taking time to connect, learn and reflect.
From April to June 2020, ICA:UK, in collaboration with our Lead ToP trainers, was pleased to offer a series of taster sessions around different topics both to examine and explore the topic and to demonstrate the use of the ToP Focused Conversation Method. The sessions were held online for 60 minutes and consisted of a facilitated conversation, followed by a brief run through of the method used. The sessions were run by different trainers including Ann Lukens, Martin Gilbraith and Dawn Williams in their own style, around topics they chose. Topics included Collaborative Leadership, Taking Your Event Online, Facilitator Resilience, Reflective Practice, Co-Facilitation and Action Learning.
Thanks to the generosity of our trainers, we were able to offer these sessions free of charge. We reached an audience of 630 people from across the world!
In addition to participants learning more about the topic, the sessions served as an introduction to the method for those new to ToP and a useful reminder of the method for those who have already attended our popular Group Facilitation Methods course. Some participants then opted to go on and take further training, wanting to learn and share as part of a community of people using facilitation.
Many of the sessions were recorded, with the recording being publicly available on our Free Resources page.
