Why study this course

Facilitation is often referred to as the new cornerstone of management philosophy. With its focus on fairness and creating easy decision making, good facilitation can help any organisation have improved staff communications and interactions and ultimately make better decisions.

Effective facilitation skills are required for anyone tasked with managing groups of people in the workplace. Every organisation has a need for good facilitators in almost every department. The difference between being a good facilitator and a great facilitator requires both training and experience.

This is an instructor-led class that you can attend from home or your office - or anywhere with an internet connection. The class utilises secure video conferencing with interactive features such as live polling, screen sharing, whiteboards, live chat, and breakout sessions.

Please note: these classes run to a very tight schedule. Please join the class at least 10 minutes prior to commencement so you are ready to participate and don't miss a minute!

This course is delivered in partnership with PD Training.
