Facilitation Skills

Price: $ 49.95+GST

With its focus on asking rather than telling, and listening to build consensus, facilitation is the new leadership ideal. This course will introduce you to this core competency and give you practical ways to apply it in the workplace.

In this course, you will learn what facilitation is, skills that a facilitator should have, and the different skill levels of a facilitator. Then, you will learn some basic facilitation techniques, including ground rules, differentiating between content and process, bringing divergent and convergent thinking together, degrees of support, managing difficult participants, building sustainable agreements, and more. Supporting skills, such as communication, feedback, and team building, are also covered.
