Facilitation requires a special set of skills. These skills empower the facilitator to effectively manage groups and group processes. Facilitators simultaneously:


·         Equalize group dynamics,

·         Manage the process, and

·         Keep the content flowing toward an outcome.


To do this effectively, facilitators need to know themselves, know groups, and have concrete tools. This workshop offers comprehensive facilitation skills for the novice and is a great refresher course for the seasoned facilitator.
