Course Overview

This highly interactive, fast-paced and enjoyable course explores the advanced techniques, skills and frameworks used by experienced Facilitators. Delegates will learn about workshop dynamics, decision-making, handling difficult situations and people, as well as the impact of culture. The course will cover techniques for emerging areas including the facilitation of teleconferences and videoconferences. It will also address the Facilitator's role in the 'close' and 'follow up' of an event.

The use of facilitation is an increasingly important part of business life, since a collaborative approach to working is widely recognised as the most effective way to make decisions, capture requirements, plan projects and gain consensus.

The focus is on a team-based approach, with the right people and skills being brought together to produce high quality outputs in a short time. In order to do this successfully, a trained facilitator is essential.
