Building Coalition Leadership through Group Facilitation and Participatory Decision Making
“People own what they create!” - Margaret Wheatley. When coalition members are involved in planning and decision-making, they are more likely to take leadership roles that ensure the success of the endeavor. This workshop provides facilitation and decision-making techniques that build member engagement and leadership. Specifically, we will walk through each element of the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) (e.g., Assessment, Capacity, Planning, Implementation, Evaluation, Sustainability and Cultural Competence) to identify – and practice – facilitation and decision-making practices that promote ownership and leadership by coalition members. Additionally, we will identify ways to make all coalition meetings “action-oriented” in a way that promotes member involvement and leadership. Hands-on activities, tools and resources will be provided.
1. Identify appropriate techniques for enhancing coalition member involvement and leadership in each element of the SPF 2. Plan “action-oriented” coalition and committee meetings that promote members engagement and involvement and leadership. 3. Teach facilitation and decision-making skills to coalition members
