Are you looking to improve your facilitation skills in leading group discussions and activities?

Look no further than our workshop training course designed to equip you with the necessary skills to succeed in facilitating groups. The course is highly practical, giving participants the opportunities to try out new approaches, as well as approaches grounded in research and theory. The course is designed to enable you to facilitate more consciously, courageously and inclusively.

Who is this course for?

Those in any professional setting that desire to enhance their skills and techniques to facilitate groups, of all sizes, to encourage meaningful work and efficient team dynamics.


  • Increased ability to facilitate in multiple contexts
  • Increased understanding of the social nature of learning
  • Increased awareness of complex group systems and dynamics
  • Increased self-awareness in relation to your facilitation practice
  • Increased confidence to influence growth in group settings

Organisations who employ or work with a participant who has taken part in the Facilitation Skills Course are likely to see improvements in the increased capacity of team members to work together on tough challenges; a greater capacity to reach collective organisational outcomes; increased levels of trust between team members; greater inclusion of diverse people and perspectives; and more effective meetings of all sizes, purposes and types.

Course Outline


The first sessions ground you in the theory of facilitation, making sure you know the why before the how.


As we finish the theory, you get immersed in a group facilitation task that you work on together.


You will then have the opportunity to present and receive feedback to solidify the skills.
