If you are still interested in the course, please write an e-mail immediatly.

Project work, teamwork and meetings of all kinds challenge us to achieve concrete results in a limited time with various people, preferably using the experience and potential of everyone. The results achieved should be supported by every group member and then be implemented. The moderation method with its various techniques may provide an important contribution to this process.

This workshop will give an insight into the moderation method and provides opportunities for practical testing. You will gain experience by designing and implementing your own moderation and then reflecting it.

A structured feedback will serve to strengthen the appropriate steps and gain ideas and suggestions for practical implementation in everyday life.
