Train the Facilitator

There has never been greater demand for dynamic facilitation skills. Have you been to a meeting where the facilitator helped people with diverse views buy into a solution? You can probably think of other times when the facilitator missed the opportunity to deliver results. Many organisations are investing more and more resources into Train the Trainer courses. These have been proven to be more than beneficial for businesses across the board, but in today’s volatile business environment it has become vital to have your own dependable facilitators in-house to defuse problems & resolve conflicts whenever they arise.

    Course Description

    Facilitation is a trusted tool for sharing ideas, delivering messages and collaborating with others. Formal facilitation methods became more structured in the late 60’s and early 70’s as a means of removing dysfunctions in the workplace. In many organisations, the use of a neutral third party to manage and improve meetings, presentations and learning sessions has become a valuable tool. Normally the person who manages these interactions does not influence the outcome of the discussion. This facilitator training course for facilitators helps them orchestrate a steady flow of ideas and concepts and direct the conversation towards mutually beneficial outcomes.

    The Latin translation of ”facilitate” is ”to enable or to make easy”. Therefore, facilitation is a helping role and a tool to assist the flow of conversation with the primary aim of working towards a better result.

    A facilitator is a neutral party who helps a group to meet key objectives and goals. They are a team player and are very aware of group dynamics. Facilitators are very good communicators, can collaborate and solve problems as well as handle any conflicts with ease.
