About the Course
So you know the difference between world café and station rounds, and you’ve seen your fair share of butcher paper, but how do you take your facilitation deeper?
The Advanced Facilitation course explores the role of the facilitator beyond tools and techniques and focuses on honing your ability to ‘read’ a group and know which intervention to use when. It’s a deep dive into what makes people tick and how the facilitator can support group discussion, collaboration and decision making.
The first course was about building your confidence through stocking the tool kit with different techniques. This course draws on over 30 years of experience across a diverse range of sectors and settings and goes to the next level. It will build your ability to stay present with a group and offer the one thing they need more than ever ... the whole and real YOU.
