The Effective Facilitator

Our team facilitates sessions and meetings on a daily basis. As a result, our clients began to ask us to teach them exactly how we do it. The Effective Facilitator is a course that takes this on-the-ground, practical experience and combines it with a theoretical foundation. This course enables you to become truly effective at leading meetings, increasing productivity and getting groups to consensus.

The 4-day course focuses on critical skills such as consensus building, maintaining energy and focus, generating ownership, managing dysfunction, setting the agenda, and closing with impact. The Effective Facilitator ensures results through applied techniques, interactive exercises, and practice sessions.

The Objectives of the Course Are To:

  • Define the role of a facilitator
  • Identify the key facilitation principles
  • Describe the best practices related to each principle
  • Provide participants with facilitation practice and performance feedback

Our goal is that you leave the course with conscious competence – you understand the what, why and how – and can immediately use what you learn.
