Facilitation Skills (Virtual)

You will learn how to recognise challenging and supporting behaviours in a group; how to control your emotions in difficult situations; and implement appropriate facilitation techniques in line with group development stages.

Building on the previous sessions, you will establish how recognising different characteristics in a group will help to inform facilitation and where intervention is required.  You will identify your personal development areas and, through a case study, examine facilitation skills in action.

By the end of the training course you will be able to:

  • Explain what facilitation is and in what situations supporting and challenging should be used
  • Identify group dynamics and recognise what intervention is needed depending on the situation and the individuals within the group
  • Examine facilitation tools and techniques
  • Identify characteristics of groups and the impact on facilitation
  • Identify personal development areas for facilitation skills
  • Put into practice, tools and techniques learnt during the course to enable successful facilitation

If you are involved in facilitating groups as part of a formal meeting, a training course or general facilitation of groups of individuals in the workplace this is the course for you.
