Training Class: Facilitation Skills Training
Class Type: Professional Development
Training Vendor: STADC

One of the most important sets of skills for leaders is Facilitation Skills. These are the "process" skills that we use to guide and direct our work, when working with groups of people for training, strategic planning sessions and/or meetings.

This workshop is designed to help participants develop effective facilitation skills. Whether it's a meeting (big or small) or a training session, someone has to shape and guide the process of working together so that you meet your goals and accomplish what you've set out to do. While a group of people might set the agenda and figure out the goals, one person needs to concentrate on how you are going to move through your agenda and meet those goals effectively. This is the person we call the "facilitator."  

Program Objectives

In a highly collaborative and interactive setting, alongside peers, you will learn to:

  • Deliver effective training, meetings and strategic planning sessions 
  • Understand how to use SWOT for Strategic planning sessions
  • Use specific techniques for leading group discussions
  • Facilitate effective use of decision-making during meetings
