You thought you were facilitating, but you were really chairing a meeting. Join this course to learn the difference.

About this event

At some point every professional will be placed in a position where they have to lead a group of people for decision-making purposes. This group may consist of people with diverse backgrounds and competing interests, yet their consensus is needed.

This is where skills are needed to navigate the group (and power) dynamics to effectively facilitate a meeting that is engaging, elicits participation and produces tangible results.

This course covers:

The facilitation process

Facilitation roles and responsibilities

Various facilitation techniques, including when and how to use them for best effect

Active Listening

Group Dynamics

Characteristics of Good Facilitation

Energisers and Ice breakers

Addressing difficult people situations

Facilitation of Virtual Meetings

The course is highly interactive with role-play and simulations. The live Zoom sessions are scheduled for Monday, August 1, Wednesday, August 3 and Friday, Ausgust 5 2022 beginning at 12 noon EST.

Run time is 2 hours.

The Tuesday and Thursday of that week will be used for homework/assignments and self-paced study on an online learning platform, which will be provided before the course begins.
