Advanced Facilitation Skills Master Class
Refine Your Facilitation Skills, Identify Difficult Situations and Practice How to Handle them Effectively
The success of any team is directly related to the ability of a facilitator, meeting leader or team members to guide the team toward the goal. As a seasoned facilitator, you have seen the team’s synergy work, and you are hungry to learn more.
The Advanced Facilitation Skills Master Class is a two-day Master Class – specifically designed with YOU, the seasoned facilitator, in mind. In this Master Class we will build on your current facilitation skills, and we will clarify what facilitators do and what they do not do. We will work to refine your skills, identify difficult situations and practice how to deal with those situations effectively.
We will strengthen your core facilitation competencies using:
- Facilitated discussions.
- Role reversal.
- Case studies.
- Behavioral facilitation modeling.
Additionally there will be a videotaped “hands-on” practice facilitation of a discussion about teams. You will receive substantial feedback in a private session with a master facilitator.
Master Class Approach
Our Master Class approach relies on a facilitative style, modeling the behaviors and tools of a skilled facilitator. Key content is reinforced with printed materials and practice facilitations allowing for fast learning and simple implementation.
Who Should Attend?
This Master Class is designed for experienced facilitators, team leaders, and trainers who want to improve their facilitation skills in working with teams. We have found that having between 12 and 16 participants in each Master Class makes for the highest level of learning and collaboration. Each participant will have some prework required before they can take part in the Advanced Facilitation Skills Master Class. This prework consists of a web-based pre-Master Class survey that will help us clarify and classify the specific needs of each participant so that we can host the most effective and efficient Master Class imaginable.
