Research development/facilitation involves a lot of thoughtful planning- of goals, activities, projects, programs, partnerships, teams, and more- with a lot of different types of people and organizations. It can be a clear path or a very rocky adventure... often both. We can advise a straightforward plan, but what if the researcher(s) prefer to go in circles? Or if they don't like a particular route? How do we get them moving forward again? In this webinar, I will review strategies, approaches, and tools for effective facilitation of research planning that works for both you and investigators.
