Facilitation Skills for Leaders


This workshop focuses on basic facilitation skills for leaders.  When learned and applied effectively, these skills can enable leaders to get the most out of any group who are meeting with a common purpose, whether it involves making a decision, solving a problem, or simply exchanging ideas and information.


The workshop does not cover everything facilitation, but rather focuses on those concepts and skills that are simple enough to understand and employ, and still have a significant, positive and immediate impact on a session’s outcome through the level of collaboration and synergy with which groups and teams conduct themselves.


To introduce leaders to fundamental facilitation skills that enable effective collaboration to get the most out of a group.

  • Take  away  some  facilitation  concepts  that  can  immediately  be  applied  in  your organization
