General Information

Length and Learning Modes: 1 day
Overview:

An effective facilitator empowers the group to capitalize upon their own latent capabilities and knowledge in the search for optimum solutions and consensus. The facilitator's ability to control the workshop to achieve its objectives is key to the success of this method. This course equips you with a structured approach to the planning, conducting and follow-up of facilitated workshops. Several facilitation techniques and processes are taught, and guidelines provided on why, when and how to use them. Throughout the course attention is focused on the effective management of the people dynamics. Unlike an overview course, this workshop gives participants numerous exercises to practice the techniques presented.
