Facilitating is helping a group of people understand their common objectives. A facilitator assists the group to plan or achieve a common project without taking position in the discussion.
Our faciliation of group and workshop 2-day course is fun, intensive and interactive, and gives a thorough knowledge of how to facilitate a meeting, a course or a workshop. It provides confidence, knowledge, tools and techniques as well as experience in a safe environment.
The course is suited to those who need skills in handling difficult situations, groups and people, and how to help groups come to good, clear and shared decisions. We use little theory and lots of practice in facilitating, with active feedback, video recording, discussion and exercises.
