Workshop Details

Workshop 1: Delving in our Why: Rediscovering our Purpose

Thursday, September 23, 2021: 11:00 – 12:00 pm MT
With Liz Weaver, Tamarack Institute

In the busyness of our day-to-day lives, shuffling from one zoom meeting to the next, we may lose our way and our core purpose. This workshop is designed to re-energize you and reconnect you to the core of your work. Why are we engaged as rural community changemakers? What is the difference we want to make in our rural communities? This 1-hour workshop will help you reconnect with your core purpose and build your core purpose statement that answers the following: It’s not my job, it’s my why.

Workshop 2: Trust and Relationship Building

Thursday, October 28, 2021: 11:00 – 12:00 pm MT
With Liz Weaver, Tamarack Institute

Building trust and relationships are critical components of collaboration and connection. This workshop will highlight the five ways of trust and relationship building and help you understand the mental processes we all go through when joining a collaborative group. During this workshop, participants will learn simple tools which can quickly build trust and connection.

Workshop 3: New Ways of Engaging with Our Rural Communities

Thursday, November 25, 2021, 11:00 – 12:00 pm MT
With Lisa Attygalle, Tamarack Institute

Communities are dynamic and continually changing. We have had to learn how to navigate new technologies and virtual spaces. This workshop will provide you with the latest thinking about community engagement and how virtual spaces can be innovative and creative. We will also reflect on how to get the right balance between engaging virtually through technology and meeting face to face. Hybrid engagement experiences will be the future and you can learn how to be effective in the hybrid world.
