Facilitation Skills

Course Overview

Consider this scenario.

Have you ever been to a meeting where everyone speaks at once, no-one has completed their actions from the time before, some people dominate proceedings, there is no clear objective or it runs way over time, or perhaps it is simply dull beyond belief and a complete waste of your invaluable time? Does this sound familiar?

If you haven’t… then this course isn’t for you. But if you have, and want to ensure any meeting or training session you ever have to run is a brilliant experience for those attending, then this is the course for you.

Being a great facilitator is what is known as a differentiating skill. Anyone who can facilitate valuable and motivational meetings, and training sessions, is perceived to be great at everything else. Rarely are you more on show than when at the front of the room. The group is reliant upon the facilitator’s skills to ensure a successful outcome.

This highly practical course is designed for anyone who has to run meetings, either internal ones or with clients, and wants to ensure they have a comprehensive toolbox to help them become a facilitator who is widely respected and appreciated by their audience.
