• Culture change
• Stakeholder and community engagement,
• Strategic and project planning,

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 behaviours 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 masterclasses
• 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.
