RapidConsensus™: a facilitation skills course to mine the collective intelligence of your group.

Why is this facilitation skills course different?

RapidConsensus™ teaches facilitation skills to get groups to contribute and take ownership for their actions. Most groups leap from problem to solution without stopping to consider or design a preferred end result. This facilitation skills course holds up the thinking of a group. It encourages them to pause and create where they would prefer to be before deciding on the best way forward.
