Facilitate

MLEAD Facilitators lead experiential learning activities, guide conversations and synthesize group ideas, effectively shaping experiences for participants. For the Spring 2018 semester we are looking for facilitators to join our Terrapin Leadership Institute (TLI) and Leadership Conferences teams.

Applications are now available on OrgSync.

Due by 11:59 pm on Nov. 3rd.

What it means

1 + 2 = 3. It is easy to teach someone why this is true, and to instruct them of the steps it takes to 3. But have you ever thought about what it might mean to facilitate someone’s journey of understanding as to how and why 1+2 does in fact equal 3? How can you get someone to arrive at this realization on their own?

Rather than arithmetic, our dedicated facilitators lead participants through a journey of leadership development. By facilitating activities and reflective group dialogues, facilitators help participants understand leadership concepts ranging from the benefits of collaboration, to the dynamics of power across identity groups in the workplace. We believe the best learning happenings when participants do it themselves, with merely a guiding hand from the facilitators!

Responsibilities

What does the role entail? Being a facilitator with the M-LEAD Program is a commitment, and we do expect you to work to uphold that commitment! Review the full description of the facilitation positions available here. Major requirements include:
