FORUM FOR ALL
What is Forum for All?
Forum for All is a platform for group members to openly discuss and manage personal issues within a confidential environment, through a structured process. Forum provides a safe space for members to work through their own issues, develop and practice empathy and understanding towards others, refine conflict management skills, improve their interpersonal skills and much more.
It can be implemented in any group of individuals with a shared purpose, for example, youth groups, clubs, sports teams, activist groups, neighbors, schools, leadership teams and other peer groups.
Why do we use Forum for All?
In the past religion took the role of creating a society where each one viewed the well-being of others as their own. Today, there is a need to create a new unifying force and unifying space where we can come together to share emotion and manage consciousness proactively. Human beings have a need for belonging, authenticity, vulnerability, and ultimately a sense of security in the times when we need each other as a safety net. Forum for All provides a structure which can develop these transformative relationships, ultimately allowing more people to fulfill their potential in the world.
What is the Forum for All process?
The Forum process takes participants through several structured stages during each meeting and retreat, allowing them to share their issues and concerns in a safe space. Participants learn how to identify core issues and their underlying cause, openly express what concerns them around this issue, provide one-on-one coaching to other members (which they will be trained to provide), and practice accountability through creating detailed action plans with the knowledge of being followed up on.
What makes Forum for All successful?
Forum for All is a successful process when it receives support from within the structures of the organization, when meetings are run according to the correct procedure as facilitated by a trained moderator, when meetings are regular, and with the appropriate materials and facilitation tools (to be provided).
How to implement Forum for All?
Through a structured and guided implementation program we can assist with launching and supporting the forum structure within your group, scheduling regular moderators meetings, developing materials and facilitation tools, providing training at various levels (individual coaching for moderators and vice-moderators, conflict resolution training and tools, feedback training), helping to create a practice of monitoring and reporting results and measuring ROIs, providing online support for questions and challenges, conducting forum survey analysis and plan of action for improvement, and providing support in the creation of Forum rules and operational guidebook.
