The skilled facilitator makes it look so easy! In fact, facilitation requires a combination of art (experience, intuition, and practice) and science (theory, frameworks, and techniques) to be successful. Facilitation draws on knowledge and skills associated with a number of disciplines: group dynamics, adult learning principles, meeting management, team building, conflict resolution, and managing diversity.
With the trend towards increased participation in decision-making, and the accompanying accountability for results within short time frames, many of us are finding the facilitation of teams, meetings, and focus groups more challenging than ever.
You will learn:
- The role and functions of a facilitator
- The stages of facilitation
- The dynamics of group work
- To encourage participation
- To manage group conflict
- Effective decision-making
- Meeting management
This practical workshop is for you if:
- You lead groups in problem-solving and decision-making
-You support or coach others in a facilitating role
-You want to enhance your own facilitation skills
