Facilitation Skills for Professionals Workshop



Facilitation Skills for Professionals workshop – One Day


This workshop equips business professionals with the tools and frameworks to become more successful in staff engagement and applied, participatory learning techniques.

What it is

Using facilitation in business settings means focusing on practices that improve the group’s collective energy — in engagement, collaboration and debate — to support individual learning and performance. What you are managing certainly counts, but it’s how you manage that will define what your team or workshop participants actually take away. Their active participation will lead to sharper skills, deeper understanding and an attitude of lifelong learning.

  • Discover the power of silence, powerful listening, and powerful questioning
  • Discover your own facilitative teaching style through practice, coaching and feedback from your peers.
