Managers & executives
Executive Certificate in Facilitation
The Executive Certificate in Facilitation is a cohort-based program that prepares senior managers and executives to design and facilitate effective face-to-face meetings and gatherings. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with other senior-level professionals while learning through a combination of interactive classroom instruction, reading, self-reflection, and hands-on practice.
You’ll learn through interactive engagement with expert facilitators who specialize in areas including facilitating vision and strategy, working in the emotional domain, and facilitating cross-cultural and diverse constituencies. Each course will be preceded by an interactive virtual session that will set the stage for the upcoming course. Led by skilled guest facilitators, the virtual sessions will include the following topics: Equity in Facilitation; Virtual Facilitation; and Facilitating with an Eye towards the Onlys in the Room. The virtual sessions will provide opportunities for you to interact with faculty and fellow classmates, and ultimately deepen your learning between each of the four courses. By the end of the program, you’ll understand how to bring about shifts in thinking, create new alignments, build consensus, and foster action that leads to results.
