Facilitation Training

Facilitation Training

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. 

Resetting the Table offers: 

Facilitation Training Intensives

RTT’s signature facilitation training program has become one of the most rigorous trainings for facilitating difficult conversations in the country. Over 7 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.

RTT’s facilitators are currently concentrated in New York, DC, LA, and Chicago. We ultimately aim to build 12 regional hubs of skilled practitioners across the country to serve courageous communication across divides.

In 2021, RTT will take a hiatus from our Facilitation Training Intensives for new practitioners due to COVID-19. We are investing in Advanced Training for alumni of our past Facilitation Training Intensives and Professional Development Facilitation Training for other bridge-builders and educators.

Meet the 2019-20 Facilitation Training Cohorts from NYC, DC and LA here!

Professional Development Facilitation Training

Resetting the Table offers short trainings (10-12 hours) in our celebrated framework and core skills for facilitating charged conversations. Participants learn facilitation practices to enable parties to remain connected and receptive to each other even while confronting passionate differences head-on.

In 2021, RTT is focusing our Professional Development Facilitation Training on building the capacity of the U.S. political bridge-building and Jewish community/Israel engagement fields, including:
