Learn to be a Skilled & Effective Facilitator

Group Facilitator Training

Good facilitation skills are essential in most work-related activities and can be applied in a wide range of settings from running productive meetings to creating the right climate for organizational change.  Effective facilitators draw upon a variety of communication skills and decision-making practices to help groups solve problems, work through conflict, agree on action plans and develop clarity for future direction.

Participants in this 15-hour workshop will:

  • Learn how to prepare for and run meetings
  • Lead groups in goal setting and planning
  • Facilitate group decision making
  • Understand and manage group dynamics
  • Distinguish the role of facilitator from other leadership positions

The instructors will emphasize experiential learning and provide opportunities to apply newly-learned facilitation skills as they relate to case scenarios.
