Invitation and registration nefia-facilitation training on September 11-12, 2020 in Berlin

Dear nefia, Mercator and Bosch Alumni, 

in many professional contexts, facilitation skills have become key competencies. Increasing complexity and constant changes require adaptive and facilitative leadership in order to hold teams together, motivate them and meet organizational or project goals.

Would you like to get to know and experience the most important conditions and practices for facilitation?

Beate Heimberger and Yorck von Korff, from the first class (1995/96) of the Bosch Postgraduate Program in International Affairs (todays Mercator Fellowship on International Affairs), work in the field of organizational development and change management and can look back on many years of facilitation experience. When we met again last year, the idea arose to jointly offer facilitation training for nefia members as well as Mercator and Bosch Alumni.

Beate and Yorck offer:

A two-day training on “Fundamental Facilitation Skills: Mindset, design, and tools.“
