Course Overview

An effective facilitator helps a group accomplish a goal, such as understand or solve a problem, explore opportunities, define requirements, make decisions, or other objectives. The ability to keep the group on task to achieve the goal is the value a good facilitator brings to an organization. The investment in developing facilitation skills is rewarded with increased leadership capabilities, more effective time management in meetings and other group settings, and improved likelihood of achieving team and business goals.
