  • Advanced Facilitation Skills (1 Day)- Virtual Training - Overview

    Call 01509889632

    The modern manager is required to develop and apply a suite of problem solving, decision making and consensus building tools to harness the intelligence, creativity and energy of the people whose commitment is required if key business goals are to be achieved. Professionals in support roles are increasingly required to use a variety of processes to engage, enthuse and enrol operations people to buy-into a change in working practices required by the business. In an increasingly bust world where time is a premium grabbing peoples attention and air time is not always easy so any event has to be facilitated in a slick, fast-paced and professional manner.

    The course agenda will be set by the participants - to begin there will be a facilitated event where the participants will highlight their key facilitation challenges.

    The tutor will then create the days agenda based on the precise needs of the participants and run the day accordingly.

    Emphasis will be placed on using the time on the course for the participants to prepare for a forthcoming facilitated event where they will play with the lead role or support the chairperson.

    All the participants will be invited to offer receive feedback on each others performance ensuring that the day is fast, focused and fun!

    At the end of the day each participant will have acquired further facilitation skills, learned how to prepare and execute a professional facilitated event and planned their next event back at work.

    This Advanced Facilitation Skills training course is available throughout the UK.

    Thank you so much to Tracey Richards, who was a fantastic trainer. Tracey really tailored the session to our needs which meant that I took so many ideas away that I can really use. She kept the day fun and engaging too, especially over video chat and we even learned tips about virtual meetings too. Would highly recommend this course!
