A unique day of interactive and participatory learning to build your skills and confidence as a facilitator, meeting organiser or workshop leader.
This will be unlike training you’ve experienced before – you’ll be challenged, engaged and hopefully excited while experiencing the power of deep facilitation.
You will develop your skills and attitudes as a facilitator in working with diverse groups and using participatory processes. We'll look at what it means to be in the mind-set of a facilitator rather than to just ‘do facilitation’. The day will also build your confidence and give you a solid basis on which to develop your own style and techniques.
A day of participatory and experiential learning that will cover:
- What it means to be a facilitator
- Support groups to recognise and work with their power dynamics
- Understand and deal with 'problem' behaviour
- Cultivate empathy and the appreciation of differences
- How to frame a group's needs
- To use questions effectively to draw out the experience of a group
- Using non-hierarchical processes
Who should attend this course?
The event will benefit anyone working with groups of people, in the role of facilitator, in formal or informal settings. Whether a novice wanting to start out with a deep grounding, or an experienced facilitator wishing to develop their current understanding and practice, the course will provide a valuable insight into good facilitation. (If you're looking for more practical workshop/facilitation skills our basic 'Facilitation Training' may be more suitable.)
