Facilitation Skills Training

We all found the Facilitating Focus Groups course very interesting and informative. Helen is an excellent facilitator and she made every effort to tailor and deliver the training in a manner which meets our team’s specific needs. I look forward to working with you again in the future.

What is Facilitation Skills Training?

Facilitation is fast becoming a key skill for anyone who is in a team, leading a project team, heading up a working group or managing a department.

Facilitation is the skill, and art of guiding others to solve their own problems and achieve their objectives without simply giving advice or offering solutions. A facilitator provides the structure and process – enabling groups to function effectively and make high-quality decisions.

This two day business skills and personal development training course is highly participative and designed to help delegates achieve a practical understanding of the process and skills of facilitation.

Delegates on this facilitation training course will receive a ‘Facilitator’s Toolkit’ containing a range of powerful techniques they can utilise back at work.

We also provide private and in-company Facilitation Skills courses. Call +44 (0)1273 622272to discuss.

Course Objectives

  • Appreciate the benefits and applications of facilitation in the workplace.
  • Be able to differentiate between process and content facilitation.
  • Identify the core practices and skills required for effective facilitation.
  • Understand how to stimulate group participation and positively handle conflict.
  • Consider the uses of a range of techniques contained within the ‘Toolkit’.
  • Develop their facilitation skills through ‘live’ practice sessions

Course Feedback

I learnt a great set of tools. The course was taught at a good pace with lots of interaction, it was fun and easy understand.

Gerald Hunt - Southern Railway Ltd

I liked that the course was very practical. I feel much more confident about facilitation thanks to useful practice. The course was well paced and informative, easy to understand. It was fun learning, taking a step back and thinking of solutions to behaviours and the context of training/ facilitation.
