Leading Engagement: Involving People in the Decisions that Affect Them

This post was submitted by NCDD supporting member Tuesday Ryan Heart of Confluence Unlimited via the Add-to-Blog form.

Join us in Chicago, Sept 30-Oct 2 for an Art of Hosting on developing strategy and methods for designing and hosting meaningful engagement. The tools and know how for meaningful and productive engagement are now available in the fields of dialogue, social media and design. The combination of these disciplines and tools enable us to genuinely integrate those who are most affected in the design and delivery of services, systems, strategies, products, plans, infrastructure and more.


Learn how other communities ignite civic engagement and create meaningful stakeholder and public dialogue on tough issues. Find more effective ways to engage people in shaping the future that affects them.

Come if you want to …..

  • Practice using and hosting a set of simple, yet powerful conversational process for thinking together, such as Circle, Appreciative Inquiry, World Cafe, Open Space and Pro-action Cafe.
  • Explore how to build relationships of trust and reconsider the meaning and uses of power
  • Enhance your design and facilitation skills
  • Move beyond ‘planning a meeting’ to developing multi-step engagement processes, including diverse methods to effectively capture and use community input.
  • Hear and share success stories and put learning to work on real life concerns.
