Facilitation Skills

Facilitation Skills Course Overview

Every organisation holds various meetings from time to time. For these meetings to be productive, it has to be facilitated by a skilled personnel. If not, the whole meeting will be a waste of time. As a result, more attention needs to be paid to the process elements of meetings. We must focus on asking rather than telling. We must learn to listen to build consensus.
