Strengthening Your Facilitation Skills – Level 1

April 17, 2014 @ 4:00 am - July 1, 2014 @ 1:00 pm


Facilitation skills are not routinely learned and practiced. If you have ever been in a role that you wished you had more skills or practice for, then Strengthening Your Facilitation Skills, Level 1 is for you.

Fun, creative, and thought provoking, the SYFS, Level 1 Curriculum is a dynamic and comprehensive five-Lesson facilitation Training Series full of activities, “lecturettes” and potential aha! moments.

This training series is designed to help you…

  • build stronger dynamic groups
  • run more effective meetings
  • have increased confidence
  • practice techniques you can use
  • increase your awareness of what & who makes your group work

As a team member or chair, we are expected to produce results in collaboration with others. This is not always easy, and the skills of facilitation are not routinely learned or practiced to be effective in our work.
