Group Facilitation Skills

Over 70% of internal training doesn’t achieve its stated objectives. Too often, organizations choose facilitators solely based on knowledge of the topic with little or no consideration given to teaching and training experience. This workshop will give you practical ways to prepare, develop and deliver successful training that not only meets, but exceeds participants’ expectations.

This program can help you:

– Understand the facilitator’s role

– Discern the difference between instruction and facilitation, and when to use each method

– Use adult learning principles to develop the framework of a course

– Develop and improve your presentation skills

– Create and present visual aids effectively

– Motivate and engage your audience

– Recognize the key elements of group dynamics

– Prepare properly for training sessions

– Set up, manage and debrief learning activities, including role plays, case studies and
   creative activities

Note: In the 2-day session, participants are required to facilitate a 20-minute presentation as a live demonstration including interaction with and challenges from the audience.

Program Length: 1 and 2-day Sessions

Core Competencies: Communication, Self Development, Relationship Building, Developing Others

Meeting Facilitation

Recent studies show that on average, top executives spend 80% of their day in meetings. For mid-level managers it can be as high as 60%. In addition, those polled reportedly believed half of that time was wasted. As a meeting facilitator, your preparation and effectiveness will determine how organized, informative and worthwhile your meeting will be. This program enhances your meeting facilitation skills, making your meetings shorter and more effective.

As a result of this course, you will be able to:

– Identify the different types of meetings and determine the necessity of each

– Identify the “four phases” of a successful meeting: pre-planning, conducting the meeting,
   wrap up and creating action plans

– Avoid meeting “creep”

– Utilize best practices for facilitating an effective meeting, while avoiding common pitfalls

– Build consensus, handle conflict and keep meetings on track

– Increase meeting communication and participation

Note: This program can be combined with our Communicate with Impact program for a full day session.
