Facilitation Skills

Engage your people with great facilitation skills!

Facilitation skills help to drive a group to clear outcomes. They enable a facilitator to engage a group, reduce arguments and save everyone time. Leaders use these skills all the time. They don’t just facilitate meetings or sessions but also conversations. They will also use these skills when they coach or mentor. Leaders that know the value of taking time to think will also use facilitation skills to guide their personal thinking time.

“The new leader is a facilitator, not an order giver.”

Several of our clients have made the investment and decided to build the facilitation skills of the people in their business. Their reasons for doing so include:

  • Getting the best out of meetings and their people.
  • Better/faster group decisions.
  • More effective group problem solving and creativity.

Why train your own team?

Training a team of internal facilitators also provides a resource for the whole organisation. This can:

  • Save money hiring external experts.
  • Create a proactive culture.
