The Essence of Facilitation - In House
Did you know most professionals spend
close to 50% of their working time in meetings?
Around one third of those meetings are unproductive.
Worse, around 85% of business training has no impact back in the workplace at all!
Making the most of meetings and training very often comes down to the facilitation skills of those running the process.
“The wise leader’s ability does not rest on
techniques or gimmicks or set exercises.
The method of awareness-of-process
applies to all people and all situations."
- Lao Tzu
Are you ready to empower your people to run 'magic meetings' and highly effective training sessions?
Confidence + Skills = EFFECTIVENESS
"I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone wishing to enhance their 21st century leadership and facilitation skills. This course was reality and humanity based thus serves to benefit ourselves and those we work with as well as those in our personal worlds. It left me feeling invigorated and motivated and more confident in my leadership role. It is a very solution orientated uplifting workshop!I have raved about this workshop to others in the company. We, the attendees were the facilitators, the audience and the critics. We were completely involved in every facet of the workshop, presenting, absorbing, considering and evaluating each other. It was a unique learning experience. Thank you."
All participants have the opportunity to actively practice the best of the practical and more subtle aspects of facilitation in the workshop.
The nature of this workshop is highly experiential.
Participants will learn generic facilitation and meeting skills as well as grow their own self awareness - a 'mission critical' competence for effectiveness.
Each participant will have an opportunity to ‘work the group’ on a facilitation related topic so practice and session content are maximised.
"Having completed The Essence of Facilitation I wish it could be part of every company's staff training - very valuable information presented by Amanda in her usual inimitable style of fun, and uplifting support for all participants. I believe everyone can benefit from this little gem of a course."
"The Essence of Facilitation is cleverly designed to give participants the experience of being both facilitator and participant in a safe and relaxed, yet stimulating environment. I came away from the workshop with constructive feedback, new skills and distinctions, plus the confidence to implement everything I had learnt. I can highly recommend this course and any other course that has Amanda as its presenter, for that matter."
