Facilitation Skills is a 2-day workshop that involves participants in self-reflective exercises, group discussions, role play and practical exercises to help them develop an understanding of and confidence with the various skills, techniques and behaviours that create successful facilitators. Facilitation is the key to achieving group goals. It maximizes the positives and minimizes negative factors; focusing everyone in the group on what is to be achieved and helping them get there. Facilitation releases the depths of knowledge, wisdom, experience and creativity from all participants and brings these together to solve problems, create strategies, and make effective decisions, resolve conflicts and much more.
Intended Audience: This workshop has been developed for any individual who wishes to enhance their general facilitation skills. The ability to clearly communicate, present ideas, engage listeners and exhibit confidence in front of an audience are prerequisites for facilitators. If appropriate, participants are encouraged to precede this program with a course on Effective Presentation Skills.
