Dialogue Mapping Workshops in November

CogNexus Institute has just announced two training seminars in Dialogue Mapping, one on each coast of the US. The workshops, called Dialogue Mapping: Building Shared Understanding of Wicked Problems, will be held from November 2-3 in Redwood City, California and November 9-10 in Washington, DC.

Each 2-day workshop is highly interactive and teaches the core skills of a new facilitation technique — Dialogue Mappping. This technique gets away from herding the group through a series of steps, instead focusing the participants on listening carefully, speaking clearly, and learning together about the issues and concerns they bring to the table. The facilitator/dialogue mapper engages the group with a map of their comments that he or she builds on the fly. The map is a shared display … paper taped to the wall or software projected on a screen.For more information: Email workshops@cognexus.org or see http://cognexus.org for more information and to register. Also check out the book Dialogue Mapping at http://cognexus.org/dm_book.htm.
