Event description

Description

Facilitation is a cornerstone skill for successfully leading agile teams. As much of the work in agile teams occurs through face-to-face communication and involves collaboration in nearly all decisions, the ability to facilitate discussion is paramount to success.

This three day course is a fast-paced deep dive into both the mindset and skills of facilitation in the context of agile practices. Participants will explore both the being and doing of facilitation.

Facilitation cannot be taught in a traditional classroom setting alone, it is a practice that is best learned through doing and learning as you go. Because of this, we place a heavy emphasis on experiential learning. Several opportunities to practice the skills and receive feedback are provided. Participants will hone their skills of what to look for by both leading facilitated sessions and being an active participant in others facilitated sessions.

Many participants describe their experience in this course as transformational, seeing a new way of leading their teams. Here are some more tangible things you can expect.

You will leave the course with...

  • The mindset of a facilitator, and how to achieve it under the toughest of environments and with even jaded teams

  • Specific tools you can deploy in specific scenarios to break down barriers, get to the heart of issues, and have teammates speak candidly and respectfully

  • An in-depth understanding of the 5 cornerstones of highly productive meetings

  • A toolkit to help you prepare so every meeting is productive and useful

  • Able to work with conflicts between team members

The objective is for you to leave the course as a trained facilitator — the most critical skill in helping teams be successful.
