Developmental Facilitation Skills
"You are your own best tool".
Offered as an in-house course
This course is essential for anyone working with groups. It will help you build a strong but flexible foundation for work in the civil society or public sector. ‘Developmental’ facilitation is an approach to working with groups from the ‘inside - out’. As a facilitator you will learn ‘You are your own best tool’ as you help groups to sense, surface and appreciate what is living inside and what is trying to emerge. You will learn ways to help each individual and the group to engage with its own will. Most importantly you will develop yourself as the starting point to facilitate the learning and development of others.
Who is this course for?
This course is for anyone working with groups; whether you call yourself a facilitator, trainer, practitioner, manager, supervisor... You may be working in a civil society organisation, the public sector or a corporate environment. It is for anyone who facilitates training courses, workshops, chairs meetings or manages change processes. It is suitable for newcomers who will bring their fresh new eyes to the content and seasoned facilitators who would like to invigorate and question their practice.
The Course Approach
A facilitated action learning approach is used to ground the course material in practice, and form the basis for further learning and improved practice. The programme emphasises a participative, shared learning experience with a creative design. Inputs are drawn from participants own experience and potential practice. Role-plays, right-brain exercises, story-telling, active listening, feedback guidelines, strategic questions and personal development exercises are some of the activities used to balance and complement the more thinking oriented processes of learning.
