ToP Facilitation Methods: Leadership Edition

Description: Teaches the three ToP® Facilitation Methodologies that are the basis for all other ToP® courses.

  1. The ToP Focused Conversation provides a context for meaningful communication. It is used to facilitate group discussions, which allow members to share diverse perspectives in a productive and non-confrontational manner.
  2. The ToP Consensus Workshop facilitates group consensus-based decisions that respect the diversity of perspectives within the group, inspire individual action, and move the group toward joint resolve and action.
  3. The ToP Action Planning process is an approach to planning an event or project. This process clarifies and delineates the tasks, and aligns the creativity, capabilities, interests and resources of the group. The group decides necessary actions, roles and responsibilities. The process builds group trust, support, enthusiasm, and consensus.
