Join highly experienced and skilled practitioners to explore the implications and practical application of complex facilitation methodologies.

Using the Cynefin® complexity decision framework as the foundation for understanding the characteristics of different approaches, the course will explore
• the principles of social complexity, adult learning, and process facilitation.
• Appropriate (and inappropriate) roles and behaviors of facilitators using complexity-based tools and methods, and how these differ from traditional facilitation.
• Management of the expectations and experiences of participants when engaging in the social construction of their own meaning.
• designing and applying the processes and methods – tips and tricks master classes
• What to use (and not use) when.
• Extricating yourself – and others – from disasters – recognising their impending arrival, knowing how (and when) to stop, recovering ‘lost’ ground, benefiting from such moments

Participants will be expected to:

• attend a 2.5 hour session every two weeks, for seven weeks, which will be a mixture of theory and practice
• work together with 2 other participants in between to undertake practical applications
• meet with one of the Complexability facilitators for an hour with their team for peer coaching
• assist their team member to ‘catch up’ if there is an unavoidable absence

Participants will receive:

• an experiential introduction to the Cynefin® framework
• 6 additional sessions of 2.5 hours of theory and practice
• 6 hours of team coaching during the program related to course
activities
• 4 hours of mentoring for individual activities.
• Resource material
