Facilitation is the art of engaging participants and enabling them to work together to achieve a specific goal. This goal could be reaching an agreement, defining a solution, or resolving a conflict. Facilitation is both a process and a skill.
The facilitation process involves the planning and design of a facilitated session and employing the best tools and techniques to help a group generate insights and agreements.
Facilitation skills that support the execution of a facilitated workshop include consultation, negotiation, stakeholder engagement, and managing group conflicts.
An effective facilitator maintains neutrality and has highly developed facilitation skills which are underpinned by a high degree of self-awareness, curiosity, and a growth mindset.
A session that is led by an effective facilitator will help a group move towards a goal in a timely and effective manner whilst strengthening relationships and commitment to outcomes.
This course is designed for all sectors and types of situations where people come together to tackle issues, resolve organisational problems and develop effective solutions, including:
