Group working is an essential part of modern organisational life and a group’s effectiveness is often greatly influenced by the ability of the facilitator working with them. The facilitator acts as an enabler, bringing different people together to produce results greater than those that could be achieved individually.
In 90 minutes participants will learn how to confidently facilitate a group discussion by:
- understanding what facilitation is
- identifying the 3 basic principles of facilitation
- identifying the key skills/qualities of a great facilitator.
In this workshop we identify the 3 basic principles of facilitation and we explore the difference between facilitation and chairing a meeting.
Participants take part in a very powerful practical activity to identify the key skills/qualities of a great facilitator.
Participants also take part in an activity to practise two of the key skills of facilitation – asking great questions and listening with empathy.
