Facilitation Training & Certification

All managers from multiple disciplines realise the necessity of utilising a collaborative workshop approach to teamwork, decision making, implementing change, and problem solving.

With the skills you learn and develop from our Facilitation Certification you will be able to utilise the knowledge of your workshop or meeting group to arrive at fast decisions and solutions whilst gaining firm commitment.

As an excellent facilitator you will make group progress easy, by skilfully enabling team interactions that increase the group’s productivity, and your ability to achieve meaningful results leading to organizational goals.

This robust facilitation learning event provides a practical understanding of what is required to operate as a professional facilitator who will make the difference between a poor unsupported decision and a brilliant one that everyone buys into.

/ CONCLUSION

In conclusion, Tony Mann, the author of the internationally accredited Facilitation manual points out “The need for high quality facilitation to enable and empower organisations to operate efficiently and effectively has never been greater. Organizations are under constant pressure to become more competitive and/or provide greater value for money for their stakeholders. There is a strong moral reason to discover and gauge the views of the workforce/community where they are personally involved in resolving issues. Moreover, the positive engagement of the workforce produced by effective facilitation adds value to organizations in all sectors of the economy.”
