FACILITATION SKILLS WORKSHOP

Facilitation skills are by far the most valuable skills for leading any kind of group communication, problem solving, or decision-making today.
Facilitation has become a critical and powerful method of leadership, especially in organizations that rely on input and commitment from all employees.
Having employees with good facilitation skills in cross-organizational settings or cross-functional teams greatly enhances the organisation's performance where discussions and meetings can be more effective and productive, and hence leading to better relationships and collaboration.

When people must work in groups to plan, decide, innovate, implement, and share responsibility, they need facilitators who inspire them to put forth extraordinary efforts to accomplish what cannot be achieved by individuals alone.
Bringing people together to solve problems, plan, make decisions, and obtain resources requires both the science and art of facilitation—a powerful and essential form of leadership.
Facilitators are entrusted with an exciting role to create an atmosphere of trust and synergy from which come results.
In a world of experts, specialization, and ever-changing methods and technology, there is a critical need for facilitators to help people collaborate, innovate, and collectively meet the challenges of today’s world.
