Programme outline

  • Advanced Facilitation Skills is a three-day facilitation skills programme that is a rich, rewarding and challenging experience for experienced facilitators. Key features of the programme include:
  • Highly practical and experiential
  • The programme design is highly practical and includes individual skills practice sessions on which you receive feedback on your personal impact.
  • Focused on group dynamics
  • Participants explore the nature and impact of group dynamics and how working with groups in this area can streamline their work.
  • Stimulating and challenging
  • Participants are encouraged to take their practice to deeper levels through spending time working in the underlying, unseen group environment and in the ‘here-and-now’. By doing this the group explores their own function as a group and as individuals to better understand how groups function, and how they as individuals show up and work with and in groups.

Day one

The programme begins by exploring the territory and field of facilitation before going on to understand group dynamics and group process.  Participants identify where they are in this field and begin to plan their individual practice session that take place on day two.

 

 

Day Two

Day two is highly practical with each participant given the opportunity to design and facilitate sessions to explore areas of interest in the fields of facilitation, group working and personal development, to share experiences and reflections, and to receive feedback on their personal style and approach.  They also spend some dedicated time intentionally working the ‘here-and-now’.

Day Three

The final day of the programme consists of workshops on topics of interest to the group.  Recent sessions include co-facilitation, working with large groups and managing specific challenges.  The final afternoon is a space for reflection and action planning.
