What is facilitation?

It means helping a group to work together better! You will learn facilitation, which enables people of all backgrounds, skills, and positions to gather and share ideas in order to generate high quality outputs. A facilitator ensures that the group's objectives are met effectively, with good participation of everyone involved.

The difference between a leader and a facilitator? What is required of a leader is specialized knowledge of the business and leadership to pull subordinates together. On the other hand, a facilitator manages the meeting process from start to finish and helps summarize the opinions, aiming to ensuring a smooth outcome that is acceptable to most of the participants within the time frame of the meeting. Facilitation is one of the key qualities of a good leader; however, others who have opportunities to lead a meeting should have this skill to generate good output. So, everyone can be a facilitator which is one of the important skills for a leader.

The training will present a diverse range of credible perspectives you can rely on and involve active role-play (only on-site) and discussion.
