Facilitation and Training
Our facilitation style is highly interactive, whether we’re facilitating meetings, workshops, or other collective processes.
MEETING AND RETREAT FACILITATION
We strongly believe that well-facilitated meetings are crucial in building strong, effective organizations and successful projects. AORTA facilitators are available to provide professional facilitation for retreats and meetings. We can work with you to plan and prepare for your meeting, help create effective agendas, and guide your group through meetings that are engaging, productive, and energizing.
WORKSHOPS AND TRAININGS
AORTA offers a wide range of workshops and trainings, including political education sessions on topics such as racial, economic, and gender justice, anti-oppression fundamentals (and beyond), and more; as well as capacity building trainings such as facilitation and conflict resolution, decision-making, and human resources. We tailor all of our workshops and trainings to the needs of the particular organization we’re working with. A selection of descriptions from past workshops can be found here.
STRATEGIC PLANNING AND VISIONING
Creating a strategic plan is one of the most effective tools for moving your work forward and remaining in alignment with your organizational vision. AORTA can support and facilitate collective visioning and strategic planning processes, working with you to clarify your group’s guiding vision and developing strong goals, objectives, workplans, and timelines.
CONFLICT MEDIATION AND COMMUNICATIONS
AORTA is available to facilitate workplace conflict resolution processes, or to provide support and training for developing organizational conflict resolution policies, protocols, and a culture of healthy communication. This could range from a brief conflict resolution/communications training to more extensive consulting work around decision-making, organizational culture, communications, and related issues.
