This is the second in a cluster of workshops inspired by the collaboration focus of the 2019 Gathering, themed, Movement Weaving: Building Collaborative Capacity. To learn more about the spirit and intent of that event, visit the Gathering page

Each one is a stand-alone workshop that tackles a different aspect and practice of collaboration. For more information on Manitoba Learns workshops, click here.

The most challenging issues and problems in our community have diverse stakeholders with diverse perspectives. Creating a collaborative common agenda is a multi-stage process that requires skilled and ideally endorsed facilitation at both the macro and micro layers. 

Processes that begin with sharing perspectives require a safe space, platform for collaboration and willingness to follow a skillfully-led process. 

Assisting stakeholders to shift from their often strongly-held positions to surfacing their underlying interests: wants and needs, hopes and desires, fears and concerns. Revealing common interests will help reduce distance between community members and builds both the agenda for action as well as the "connective tissue" or relational atmosphere for collaborative action. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Learn a process of interest-based sharing and how to identify common interests 
  • Learn to start the process of generating an action plan that reflects diverse views and can include a role for everyone
