Course Description

Facil­i­ta­tion is often referred to as the new cor­ner­stone of man­age­ment phi­los­o­phy. With its focus on fair­ness and cre­at­ing an easy deci­sion mak­ing process. Cre­at­ing a com­fort­able envi­ron­ment through bet­ter facil­i­ta­tion will give you a bet­ter under­stand­ing of what a good facil­i­ta­tor can do to improve any meet­ing or gathering.

The Facil­i­ta­tion Skills course can help any orga­ni­za­tion make bet­ter deci­sions. This course will give you an under­stand­ing of what facil­i­ta­tion is all about, as well as some tools that you can use to facil­i­tate small meet­ings.
