We'll help you bring people together for worthwhile, meaningful conversations through the art and science of facilitation.Book a call
When you bring a group of individuals together for a specific discussion, how do you keep them on-track and productive? How do you make sure there's room for everyone's voice? How do you create structure without imprisoning people's thinking? How do you maintain engagement and energy? How do you do all of this while sticking to a schedule?
Facilitation is the art of group coaching backed by the sciences of conversational dynamics and behavior.
This workshop is particularly suited to those who are building their facilitation, delivery and coaching skills to better work with groups.

Today's reality is that a huge majority of important conversations are happening virtually. Even relatively simple interactions now require more pre-planning and a greater familiarity with a range of emerging technologies.
Based on our extensive experience building training and facilitation experiences for groups (sometimes including 100s of people), we've designed this workshop for anyone who needs to make virtual gathering tools work in practice. It's particularly suited to anyone who wants to know how to lead virtual gatherings more effectively - such as L&D professionals, events professionals, and facilitators who've primarily worked face-to-face.

This 4 x 2.5h workshop is particularly suited to anyone looking to receive a comprehensive training in facilitation - whether working in-house or externally.
The workshop was extremely well facilitated, many "meta" observations I take with me. A really great balance of being able to engage in abstract facilitation ideas and techniques while also demanding personal reflection on what real challenges I have in my day to day work.
Thank you for being transparent in your intentions for the session structure! I really loved it and it's going to have an impact on my facilitation skills.

I loved the practical side of this training - the exercises delivered in the context of our current meeting problems. The last exercise, in particular, was outstanding - where we did the meeting health check and then built an action plan to make changes. It was also valuable to learn about RACI matrices and the ways to get a well-defined, single purpose for a meeting. Also, the coaching and facilitation were outstanding.

There are lots of things that I took for granted would not or could not be changed about our meetings. This course changed my thinking.
I liked the hands-on portions, rather than having it be a lecture. It was lots of fun and very informative.
The frameworks for clarifying ownership levels across participants were particularly useful.
The workshop was also a great way to meet and talk with people that I don't always interact with. It's easy to feel like you're spitting into the wind by trying to change things without this kind of shared experience.
Thom O. - Producer - Striking Distance Studios
I liked this workshop because it really focused on criteria, goals and usefulness. It was also great to know about resources. It's going to have a real impact on my facilitation.
