If you find yourself presenting a workshop, leading a meeting, or managing a project–consider yourself a facilitator! In today’s fast-paced and collaborative work environment, facilitation savvy is needed by anyone providing internal support or leadership to groups, projects, departments, or institutions.

In this interactive full-day session, participants will learn and practice the core values, skills, and behaviors associated with effective facilitation. The content addressed will be at an intermediate to advanced level and will include:

  • Best practices to effectively manage varying individual and group dynamics.
  • Tools and techniques for maximizing the contributions of individuals when cross-functional teams or partnerships with other organizations are involved.
  • Strategies for better engaging the full participation of all members of a work group.
  • Tips to frame conversations that elicit better results.

This workshop involves role rehearsals and case study discussions reflecting commonly encountered situations. Prior to the program, participants will receive a short reading introducing them to the basic facilitation skills and techniques that will be utilized.

Individuals from all functional areas and position levels can benefit from enhancing their facilitation skills through this course. You will leave feeling better equipped to facilitate any interaction, meeting, conference call or workshop with competence and confidence.
