Want to deliver your own facilitation skills training courses? Here’s how
Facilitation is basically the process of making something easier or possible. And an effective facilitator uses their skills and experience as a protector of this process.
Too often, we see employees believing that they know how to facilitate sessions. But, when they are put to the test they fail miserably.
Here’s how our training materials will help you deliver your own facilitation skills training courses.
What you need to know about delivering your own facilitation skills training courses
Use the course material to explore various facilitation skills techniques. And, help your participants (e.g., line managers, supervisors and line staff) to become better facilitators.
The following topics are covered within the slides, manuals and support materials provided.
What is facilitation – Start the course with a definition of facilitation.
What is a facilitator – Then, explore the traits associated with great facilitators.
Functions – Examine what is the function of facilitation. Next, examine various facilitation styles and principles. Plus, the values that are needed by effective facilitators.
The facilitation process – Next, discuss decision making, outcomes and products.
Designing the process – Explore how to design a facilitation process.
Facilitation techniques – Examine tips, rules, and how to gain consensus. Then, explore self-check questions and the concept of intervention.
Techniques – Next, explore specific techniques that facilitators can use within a wide variety of settings. These include:
– Awareness Technique
– NGT Technique
– Affinity Diagram
– Fish Bowl
– Multiple Perspectives Disk
– The Hanger Technique
People in the process – End the course, by examining group dynamics and personality types. Then, explore the important areas of dealing with conflict. And, discuss the role of people in the process.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
– Identify the main obstacles to effective facilitation skills
– Understand the facilitation process
– Understand a range of facilitation techniques
– Build an effective facilitation process
– Explain the benefits of effective facilitation skills
“The modules are certainly still proving useful. Every day I think of another use for them, they have come at just the right time, really excellent value for money – the complexity and depth in the materials mean we can mix and max Powerpoint presentations to suit our audience’s levels and requirements.”

“As someone who’s been involved in training for more than twenty years, I’ve never known a resource that’s as consistently valuable as Oak.
I’m always amazed at their willingness to provide purchasers of their complete range of presentations regular updates and new training packages at no additional cost. That makes my purchase become more valuable all the time. And their speed in responding to questions is phenomenal.
One of the sessions I often provide is a Training the Trainers workshop. In it, the very first resource I encourage people to purchase is the library of resources from Oak. These packages have made my job infinitely easier, and I recommend them to anyone who’s looking for the highest quality in training materials.”
