This interactive facilitation skills course gives you the opportunity to learn and practice your facilitation skills with the help and support of an experienced facilitator. This course is currently only available for a group (4+) of delegates. Please contact us for further information.
Being a facilitator is the skilful act of helping people through a range of group activities such as meetings, brainstorming sessions or training, with the intention that the individuals and group achieves the specific goals of the session. The facilitator will, by their presence and input, make things easier for the group and individuals within.
This interactive course gives you the opportunity to learn AND practice facilitation skills with the help and support of an experienced facilitator.
Increased engagement and group dynamics – a well facilitated meeting or other group session will ensure that everyone’s contribution is valued and considered.
Increased balance in terms of contribution to meetings – The group will be ‘managed’ to ensure that there is a balance of contribution between the more and the less vocal members.
Increased interest in meetings and other group sessions – Employees are more likely to enjoy attending meetings and group sessions if they know that they are going to be effectively run and managed.
Improved goal achievement – The facilitator will have the skills to effectively manage a group to work towards achieving intended goals.
This course is ideal for all supervisors, managers, team leaders, sales people and other employees who have a responsibility to manage meetings and lead groups towards successful conclusions, goals and objectives.
