To create an environment where individuals feel able to contribute ideas; where they feel safe enough to take risks; where space is shared equally (rather than dominated by the few), requires the skills of a good facilitator.

The facilitator ‘holds’ a group, encouraging movement and energy so that participants feel free to speak, listen, support and challenge. The facilitator will use skills that allow the group to be self-directing and self-managing; and this will encourage feelings of empowerment and ownership amongst participants. It can motivate individuals and encourage better team working, outside of the group.

Participants will:

  • Understand better, groups and how individuals in groups work.
  • Explore strategies for handling difficult situations.
  • Develop skills that will enable them to facilitate successful groups.
  • Increase their self and social awareness, which will transform the way they work with groups.

This workshop is ideal for anyone working with groups. This would include those in teaching, training and supporting roles. It is also useful for those organisations who want to run Action Learning Groups; or who want to run Facilitated Groups in between waiting times for 1:1 coaching, counselling or mentoring. Facilitated Groups are also a valuable addition to formal supervision for front-line workers.

This workshop will be recorded and you can use the ticket function to pre-purchase the recording before the event. This will be useful for people who are not able to attend the event live and also for those who attend the event live and want to watch it again.

This workshop will be hosted on the Zoom meeting platform where we will use our cameras and microphones to interact with each other as a group.
