Going toward the heat skillfully requires highly trained facilitators. Resetting the Table is building a new field of practitioners to serve constructive deliberation across divides throughout the U.S.
RTT’s signature facilitation training program has become one of the most rigorous trainings for facilitating difficult conversations in the country. Over 6 months, participants receive an intensive introduction to RTT’s model, individualized coaching, mentorship and multiple opportunities for live practice with feedback. Facilitators practice intervening amidst free-flowing conversation in ways that support participants to remain centered and connected as they exchange deep-rooted commitments, address misunderstandings, and challenge one another across their differences. The program also offers the possibility of joining Resetting the Table’s growing roster of facilitators to facilitate at RTT events.
In 2019-2020, we will be offering Facilitation Training in the following areas:
RTT built our first regional hub in NYC, training several dozen facilitators and multiplying programs across hundreds of Jewish communities and institutions. In 2018-19, we launched two new hubs in Greater Washington DC and Greater Los Angeles. We ultimately aim to build 12 regional hubs of skilled practitioners across the country to serve courageous communication across divides.
Resetting the Table offers short trainings ranging from 1-3 days to teach professionals RTT’s celebrated framework and core skills for facilitating charged conversations. Participants learn facilitation practices to enable parties to remain connected and receptive to each other’s experiences and ideas even while confronting passionate differences head-on.
