What changes if I come to a group not as an expert to share knowledge, but rather as a human being coming to learn from the experience of the other so that I may transfer it into my own context?
This workshop will take participants on a deep exploration of the question “What makes us human?”, and will help them think through the consequences of taking our common humanity as a starting point to any work we do. At the heart of this workshop is the approach used by the international NGO the Constellation, SALT: Stimulate/Support – Appreciate/Authenticity – Learn/Listen/Link – Transfer/Trust/Transform/Team.
Facilitators of this approach know from experience that people within the communities and groups they work with have what it takes to dream, act and transform – they trust that as facilitators they need only to host a space that is ‘human’ enough for people to express themselves freely and find their own solutions – trust that building from strengths and aspirations any group of people has enough in common to overcome their differences and work towards a shared dream.
Participants will leave the workshop with renewed energy, connections and concrete ideas of taking next steps in a change process of their choice.
