About the Course

The scene is set and you are getting ready to walk into a room

full of people with varying views, opinions and emotions

about the topic under discussion ... are you ready to facilitate?

  • Will you be able to get people talking with each other rather than at each other?

  • How will you keep them on track?

  • Have you allowed enough time to get to the end point?

  • Have you selected the right group processes?

This one-day workshop develops a deeper understanding

of key dynamics of facilitation (the group, the facilitator, the

issue and the process you will use) and how they come

together in the session. This workshop is a practical

exploration of tools, techniques and strategies to assist

groups to arrive at an outcome. The day will be interactive

and designed to ensure the strategies discussed are

practically understood and not just theories.
