Facilitation: You Can Be a Facilitator

Facilitation: You can lead a discussion. Introduce speakers. Moderate competing ideas. And synthesize new arguments.

  Facilitation. Imagine yourself facilitating a major event featuring leading thinkers in your industry. You can lead discussions and bring out the best ideas from competing viewpoints. 

  In this How to Be a Facilitator course you will learn the following: 

  *The difference between being a good speaker and a good facilitator 

  *When and how to interrupt 

  *How not to speak too much or too little 

  *How to put the spotlight on other people's ideas, not your own. 

  *How to introduce other people properly 

        *How to conduct a proper Facilitation

  This Facilitation course is delivered primarily through spoken lectures. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking. 

  The Facilitation skill you will learn in this class is not primarily theoretical or academic. It is a skill that requires physical habits. That is why you will be asked to take part in numerous exercises where you record yourself speaking on video, and then watching yourself. Learning presentation skills is like learning how to ride a bicycle. You simply have to do it numerous times and work past the wobbling and falling off parts until you get it right. 

  This Facilitation course contains numerous video lectures plus several bonus books for your training library. 

  TJ Walker has been coaching and training people on their presentation skills for 30 years. Now, through the power of Udemy's online platform, he is able to give you the same high-quality training that he gives in person to CEOs, Fortune 500 executives, and Presidents of countries. Only you can now receive the training at a tiny fraction of the normal fee for in-person training. 

  How long this Facilitation course takes is up to you. The longest part of the course involves you speaking on video, critiquing yourself, and doing it over until you like it. But if you get to the point where you love how you look and sound when you present it will be well worth the time spent. And having this skill will save you time for all future presentations in your life. 

  You can begin improving your Facilitation skills right now. You may have an opportunity to speak out as soon as tomorrow, so why waste another day worried that your facilitation and presentation skills are not up to high standards. Please enroll today.

Are you passionate about helping others improve their relationships?

Are you a life coach, counselor, workshop facilitator, speaker or other professional who works with families, couples or singles?

Would you love to run relationship workshops or add powerful proven relationship-building tools to your toolbox?

Become a Certified Relationship Workshop Facilitator!

The Relationship Workshop Facilitator Certification provides a blueprint for conducting relationship workshops (which is a great skill if you're a life coach or similar professional). You will learn powerful tools and tips for workshop structure and facilitation.

By the end of this course you will be able to help your clients:

  • Understand why relationship drama is so addictive and how to prevent conflict

  • Attract the right partner and be a match to the relationship they really want

  • Release past pain, old patterns, and resentment that keep them repeating the same painful relationship patterns over and over again

  • Get beyond the temporary in-love euphoria and develop true, lasting love

  • Learn proven, powerful communication techniques that are the secret to safe, successful and fulfilling relationships

Why Workshops?

In all of our experience counseling couples, families and singles, and developing relationship workshops for corporate, state and federal programs, we have found that working with people IN GROUPS is the most impactful way to help people improve their relationship skills.

A group is a safe environment where people tend to take relationship advice, that can be hard to hear, less personally. They can learn from other participants and reflect on how the concepts apply in their own relationships without feeling embarrassed or defensive. Plus, as the facilitator you get to reach more people and make more money in less time, compared to working with clients one-on-one!

That’s why we have put ALL of our best relationship coaching techniques and relationship advice into one course.

This course will train you how to utilize our Enlightened Relationship program to run your own relationship workshops. It provides you a blueprint of everything you need to start facilitating successful relationship workshops right away, including:

  • A variety of activities and topics

  • Outlines to follow

  • All workshop materials, handouts and PowerPoint slides

  • Plus, you’ll even receive sample promotional material!

And most importantly, you’ll learn the exact exercises and tools we use to help our clients open their communication, attract their ideal partner, reignite their intimacy, stop destructive patterns, forgive and heal past wounds, and create a vision for their ideal relationship.

Facilitating workshops is also a great way to grow your business.

People tend to buy products and service from practitioners and brands they know, like and trust. Build a relationship with your future clients through offering workshops, which demonstrate your expertise and increase the value you offer. Plus, you reach a greater number of people and can generate more revenue in a shorter period of time!

So, are you ready to help people develop fulfilling relationships and get paid doing it? If so enroll now, we look forward to seeing you in the course!

 

Guarantee: We know you will love this course. However, we offer a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee if the course does not meet your needs for any reason.

Are you passionate about helping others Discover their Life Purpose, Live with Passion and meaning, turn their pain into purpose, and Fulfill their Destiny?

Are you a speaker, life coach, counselor, workshop facilitator or other professional who wants to add more value for your clients and a new income stream for your business?

Would you love to run life purpose workshops and be able to reach more people?

Become a Certified Life Purpose Quest Workshop Facilitator!

This course is designed to provide you with a complete blueprint for offering a Purpose Quest Workshop, including:

  • Curriculum & Materials

  • Workshop Activities & Handouts

  • Complete PowerPoint Presentation

Plus you’ll learn powerful workshop facilitation techniques as well as strategies for customizing this program to be run as a:

  • Retreat

  • Multi-day event

  • Smaller workshop

  • Virtual group program.

You can even use the processes with one-on-one clients if you prefer!

So, why offer life purpose workshops?

Workshops are a great way to reach more people, establish yourself as an expert, and generate revenue!

And why the life purpose topic?

We live in a time in which we have more opportunity than ever before to access resources, learn anything we want, do what we love and follow our passion.

We also live in a time of unprecedented change—and change is scary for most people. It challenges our worldviews, makes us question our assumptions about what’s possible, and sometimes thrusts us into challenges that disrupt our lives.

And the result is that more and more people are finding themselves asking life’s biggest question:

  • Why are we here?

  • What is the meaning of life?

  • What is my life purpose?

People from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, religious, and life experiences are waking up to the awareness that...

LIFE IS MEANT TO BE MORE.

They know they are not fulfilling their potential. They seek to live a life of more meaning. They feel compelled to give their pain a purpose and use it to make a difference. But, they hold themselves back because they tend to tell themselves stories of why they can’t do what they want, stories of the bad things that happened to them, and stories of the way they are “supposed” to live, rather than tell the story of their potential, the gifts they’ve been given, and the dreams in their heart.

And as a Life Purpose Quest Workshop Facilitator, you will have the tools to guide them on a journey into themselves to reveal the gifts they have to give to this world and rewrite their life’s story.

The Purpose Quest process will take them through the 6 Stepping Stones of Life Purpose:

  1. They’ll explore their CHILDHOOD INFLUENCES to identify where they learned to play the roles they act out on the stage of life.

  2. They’ll look at their PERSONALITY TRAITS for clues of who they’re meant to be in this world.

  3. They’ll embrace their PASSIONS and develop the interests they never allowed themselves to explore.

  4. They’ll identify their natural TALENTS and the skills they’ve developed that will serve them along their journey.

  5. They’ll look back at the meaningful and life changing experiences along their LIFE PATH to see where the trajectory of their life has been taking them.

  6. And finally, they’ll banish any limiting BELIEFS that are holding them back from their potential.

By the end of the workshop, the participants will put the 6 stepping stones of purpose together like puzzle pieces that reveal the big picture of their life’s greater purpose.

We have been guiding people on a journey to discover their life purpose for over a decade and we’ve trained thousands of life coaches how to use our processes to help their clients live a life of meaning and reach their potential. And now we have compiled all of our best life coaching tools and workshop activities into a blueprint you can use to run your own life purpose workshops, whether you use our powerful Purpose Quest process or customize it to meet your needs.

So, who are we?

We are Joeel & Natalie Rivera. At the time of this recording we have over 300,000+ students from 195 countries. Our courses are all based on our educational background in psychology and education, our experience as life coaches, speakers, and entrepreneurs, as well as Joeel’s background as a psychology instructor, his Master’s in Counseling and his research on happiness for his dissertation for his PH.D. in Psychology.

Graphic facilitation is a method of using visual language to help describe and illustrate the idea that you are conveying. We are all visual thinkers and we can all draw. You can also draw! You don't have to be an artist to put several shapes together. With just a little practice, you will be able to draw memorable icons that will help you lead groups and individuals towards the goal. Graphic facilitation is a powerful tool that can be used to quickly understand the content, push new information into long-term memory and most importantly, inspire people to act.

The course consists of four main sections:

  • In the introduction section, you are going to learn how to get the most out of this course, what materials we are going to use and how the rest of the course is going to be conducted.

  • In the second section you will learn how to draw by using 5 simple shapes only. You will learn all the necessary components to create a memorable poster. We are going to start with icons, then learn to incorporate shades and effects in your drawings. After that you will get familiar with drawing faces and facial expressions, platforms and signs to indicate the place, arrows to show the process and text and speech bubbles for bringing clarity. Finally you will learn about color theory, the meaning behind the colors and how to use them in the most correct way possible.

  • The third section is completely dedicated to using your skills in practice. Here you will learn about the three main phases of a training session and how to use graphic facilitation for making those phases more effective. We will discuss specific examples and give you the templates that can be used in your future work.

  • The last and the final section is about creating your own visual vocabulary. In this section you will learn how to create icons of your choice step by step. This will enable you to expand your visual library and work specifically within your context.

One of the most important features of this course is that we are more than happy to have you on-board and guide you through it. This means that we are glad to answer all your questions individually and provide a helping hand if you need. We encourage you to check out the free previews to see what the course has to offer. Hope to see you in work soon!

I’d like to ask you a question…

What do you worry about when it comes to your facilitating discussions with your audience?

Well, we decided to find out…

After interviewing literally hundreds of facilitators, we discovered the top 22 things facilitators worry about when it comes to their audience whether that be audience, executives, technical professionals or sales staff.

Ask yourself, have you ever had any of the following concerns?

  1. “I’m worried I won’t know how to answer questions.”

  2. “Facilitating material I am not an expert in.”

  3. Not being able to engage or excite people to action.”

  4. “I’m afraid no one will like me.”

  5. “I’ll make people feel more confused.”

  6. “Creating compelling and actionable deliverables.”

  7. Losing credibility with the group.”

  8. “Extremely uninterested, despondent or disgruntled classes.”

  9. Looking un-knowledgeable.”

  10. “Audience won’t understand my lesson.”

  11. Wondering if everyone got it.”

  12. Stuttering or losing my place.”

  13. The whole group is asleep.”

  14. “Feeling nervous and uncomfortable throughout the session.”

  15. “Getting lots of negative feedback (more than other facilitators).”

  16. “Not being able to fill the time.”

  17. “I want to avoid looking foolish, awkward or uncomfortable.”

  18. Failing to communicate.”

  19. “What if I look stupid?”

  20. “Teaching something incorrectly.”

  21. “Closing so that people take action.”

  22. “Saying something completely wrong and not being corrected.”

To help you handle each of these twenty-two concerns and more, we created Facilitate…

Steve - Business Manager

Karen - Language Arts Professor

I truly went into this thinking that I couldn’t possibly learn anything new, but I found myself scribbling notes like a mad woman during the presentation. I quickly realized that these were tips and techniques that I had never heard before, and that I could use immediately upon my return to the office.”

A Proven 16-Step Activity Facilitation Process For turning Boring Learning Activities into More Engagement and Retention, You’ll Truly Become An Activity Facilitation Expert...

    (…and you’ll know when and HOW to do this for any activity)

Unfortunately, most trainers just don’t get it!

When it comes to facilitating activities, they either don’t do activities at all…

    …ONLY facilitate them when they see disengaged participants…

    …or only facilitate activities when people tell them they’re supposed to do an activity.

That type of “I hope this sticks” activity facilitation just won’t cut it anymore! 

Not only is it not improving engagement, it’s almost certainly costing you money!

If you actually want to facilitate interactive and fun activities that make learning sticky, engaging, and applicable, then you need to do more.

You need a PROVEN process in place to tell you exactly how (and when) to facilitate activities!

But how do you create a “process” that systematically converts boring training into engaging activities and turns engaging activities into saving training time and money…

    …one that will work for any activity, any learner, any curriculum?

FACT: Businesses Need Activity Facilitation Experts

    (…Who Actually Know What They’re Doing)

All businesses need a way to train their employees to generate more learning in less time.

They need a proven and repeatable process to identify exactly where they should focus their training efforts to truly “move the needle” in their business.

I’m not going to sell you on the importance of interactive learning and facilitating activities.

If you’re here, you know how important even the slightest increase in employee engagement can mean to a business.

In other words, you know that increasing your engagement rate means more production and more retention, all from the training that you’re already giving.

So that’s why businesses need Activity Facilitation Experts.

There’s just one problem: Most so-called “activity experts” don’t know what they’re doing…

That’s where YOU come in.

As an Classroom Activity Facilitation Specialist, you are uniquely qualified to help trainers facilitate their existing activities in an even more engaging and exciting way.

More specifically, in this master class, you’ll learn:

  • The critical tools that get buy-in for any activity (and two of these are rarely ever done)…

  • The key prerequisites that actually increase credibility and rapport (get these wrong and you’ll waste your time and money on useless activities)…

  • The 3 crucial factors for checking to see which participants “got it” (we’ll show you when and how to use them)…

  • How to use Case Studies to work the room (and which style works the best)…

  • Our proven formula for developing rock solid assessments (this will give valuable insights regardless of your activity’s outcome)…

  • The 3 most effective tools for tutoring all 4 learning styles (and how to use them, step-by-step)…

  • How to apply tone and body language to an activity (and the one crucial technique most facilitators forget to do when starting)…

  • The three ways to manage the pace of an activity (and why most trainers ignore one of these, which is a huge mistake)…

  • Know when and how to handle “Fast and Slow” learners (get this wrong and your activity will be sabotaged)…

  • Know how to create an activity checklist to prepare, lead and apply the activity so that the training is fun, because it’s fun it sticks, and they apply what they learned back on the job).

  • Get a crash course in 44 alternatives to lecture that “move the needle” (including preparing for the activity, facilitating the activity, and critical things to do after the activity is complete), and more…

In short, Classroom Activity Facilitation Specialists (a.k.a. “Activity Masters”) are able to not only make training more fun and engaging… they have a proven and repeatable process to increase retention and save time and money with the activities they’re already facilitating!

If you’re interested in becoming such an “Activity Master,” then I have one question for you…

Are You A “Doer”…or Just a “Talker”

(or…why You Might Want To Take This Course)

Let’s face it: Training experts are a dime a dozen.

So how do you separate those who “walk the talk” from the ones who merely…

…talk?

That’s the problem!

And at Rule the Room, it was our problem, too.

You see, we don’t just teach training best practices, we actually MODEL everything we teach…

In other words: WE ACTUALLY DO THIS STUFF…

  • … we actually are trainers, just like you.

  • … we created this program from scratch after watching THOUSANDS of trainers, just like you.

  • … we train trainers, just like you.

…and here’s the difference…

You get to see us actually MODEL for you how to train by TRAINING YOU OURSELVES …

…so you’ll know right away (you’ll FEEL right away), what we’re doing…

And we know how hard it is to find truly skilled people who know what they’re talking about.

That’s why we built this class… to train our own team members.

But in the spirit of “open sourcing” our business (which is what Rule the Room is all about) we’re now making this training available to the world.

In short, we’re making it available to YOU…

Activity Facilitation Mastery Course Reviews

“I was impressed by the number of methods I could use to actively improve learning in a non-lecture setting. During activities, I will definitely be benchmarking students earlier and adding more enrichment exercises.”

Craig Thompson -- Corporate Trainer

“It’s so simple and never taught. College teaches all the wacked out, in depth theory and pedagogy without giving presenters the simple steps of what to do, that’s the brilliance of these classes. A lot of us know the why, now we get to know the how. The theory that you teach is practical and effective. Learning through college teaches a lot of high level information and assumes the basics (or the basics are not thought to be needed because college is taught by experts not by teachers). These classes give those basics that, though many of them may be getting done, they are brought to consciousness to do them effectively, consistently, and across all areas.”

Chris Chalhoub - Healthcare Software Trainer

 “I’m on site with the CTs and they just finished watching your video on how to train. I introduced myself and opened the floor for some questions. The only question I received was “Do you work with Jason? He’s so good! Just wanted to pass along the positive note.”

Rule The Room Train The Trainer Is Different

Sure, you can probably find other “train-the-trainer” trainings and certifications that cover similar topics, but a Rule the Room Train-the-Trainer course is unique because it’s built and taught by real trainers who actually write and train their own classes and observe, coach and train thousands of trainers to mastery.

In other words, we aren’t “researchers” sharing “theoretical fluff”. We’re in-the-trenches trainers who despise untested theory and believe that the best way to learn training techniques is to actually get up and teach in front of a real classroom. If that sounds like something that fits you, then welcome! You’re in the right place.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: “How will this Activity Facilitation Mastery Class help me?”

A: It depends on who you are…..

  • If you’re a business owner, this course is a great way to learn activity facilitation techniques yourself.  It’s also a great way to train and certify members of your own team and get them up to speed in half the time on the latest activity training techniques, trends and best practices.

  • If you’re a consultant, this course is a practical way to show that you are an Activity Facilitation Specialist, which could help you attract better, higher-paying clients, boost their ROI and efficiency, and lower turnover, safety and security concerns.

  • If you’re a student, this class can set you apart from other graduates who may have a business or education degree, but don’t have the specialized skills that employers today are looking for.

  • If you’re an employee or training professional, this course can make you more valuable to your company, which can get you that raise or promotion you may deserve (but don’t have a reason to request).

Q: “How valuable is this Activity Facilitation Course?”

A: The course itself is highly valuable if your goal is to set yourself apart from the competition. What’s even MORE valuable than any course is the knowledge and understanding you’re going to gain when you take this class and pass all the tests. You will know master activity facilitation. I’ll say that again: YOU WILL KNOW ACTIVITY FACILITATION.

Q: “When do I have to finish the class?”

A: You can go at whatever pace suits you best! You’ve got a lot of other things going on in your life, so just because you enroll in the workshop doesn’t mean you need to complete it right away. In fact, you can start and finish the workshop whenever you want. Either way, we’re going to be there with you every step of the way to ensure you’re successful.

Q: “How soon can I finish the class”

A: The Activity Facilitation Mastery class is 4.5 hours of video training, so if you are dedicating yourself full time to it, you could probably finish in one day, but we don’t recommend that. Instead, we recommend you take 2 – 5 days (if you can give your full attention to the material. If you only have a little bit of time each day, then you should dedicated 7 – 14 days to finish it up and do the activities.

Q: “How certain can I be that I will finish?”

A: It’s never a guarantee. If it was, then our course wouldn’t mean anything. Instead, it does mean something, and because of that, you’re going to have to work at this thing to get finished. When you do finish, you can be certain that it will actually mean something. The class and the activities are both going to challenge you, but rest assured we make everything simple, easy to understand, and quick to learn.

Q: How hard is the class?

A: You can liken our class to the story of “goldilocks and the three bears” – not too hot and not too cold. In other words, they’re hard enough that you need to study and know your stuff, but we don’t make them intentionally hard just to be difficult. We make them as hard as they need to be to make sure you know how to “Rule the Room”. We believe learning doesn’t happen until a behavior change occurs, so to preserve the integrity of this course, we have made the class challenging and the activities specific to our proprietary Rule the Room Train the Trainer techniques, methodologies and recipes. Don’t expect to pass the course just because you have taken other trainings or certification courses in the past. This training is different, and the class will reflect those differences.

Q: Why are Activity Facilitators so important?

A: A master at activity facilitation so they can make your learning activities fun, engaging, sticky, and applicable is one of the learning team’s most valuable assets.   A set of master activity facilitation techniques at scale can pay for itself immediately with employee growth and retention and these skills can make you truly irreplaceable.

The Change Facilitator: Dynamic Group Facilitation Skills

Become a highly effective facilitator of group learning or team change processes. Be mentored by two top UK facilitators

Created by Neil Almond - Award winning change facilitator and coach

Students: 442, Price:  Paid

One of my clients, a learning and development manager from a major mobile company, stopped me recently (after I'd been facilitating a strategy session for a group of her senior executives), "How did you do that Neil? There are so many big egos in that room. How did you read them? They're not normally creative, how did you get them working together to come up with all those innovative ideas? And then, what magic did you use to get them to align and agree to a path forward? That's never happened before. I wish I could learn to do that."

"You could do it easily" I replied, knowing her skill as a coach and L&D consultant, "I'm happy to mentor you if you like."

She looked a little confused. "Mentor? You mean teach don't you?" She knew, after all, that I run one of the UK's most successful change facilitation schools.

"No, I think mentoring is much more appropriate for developing facilitation skills, don't you? The trick, I believe, is 'trying on skills and attitudes', assimilating the ones that work for you until you become a very best facilitator you can be. It's a continual learning process. It's not just about just learning skills or a set formula, it's about 'being' and 'doing'. That way you have true behavioural flexibility when you're working with a group and you can flex to their needs rather than forcing them to play by your rules. Like great coaching, great facilitation is a conversation with a purpose. It's more a set of ideas and principles working together, rather than a rigid plan. I'm willing to share the bits that I think make the most difference if you like."

My client was delighted and over the next few months I mentored her to become a really effective facilitator. And I'd like to make the same offer to you here on Udemy. I'd really love to have the opportunity to share what I believe are the most important ideas, tools and distinctions for a facilitator to have at their disposal. And I'd like to encourage you to try them on. I really do believe that if you throw yourself into this programme you can significantly increase your effectiveness in working with groups and in facilitating learning or change.

Mentoring, after all, is simply about me saying 'I've walked this path before. And I've been pretty successful at it. I've learnt a great deal, and have tried on even more. Would you be interested in hearing about the best bits of what I've learnt? And would you then, like to try on those ideas to see if you can get similar results in your professional life?'

If this sounds of interest, then I'd love to get to know you better and do my very best through these videos to help you accelerate your facilitation journey.

Now, you may have already noticed that this isn't the shortest course on Udemy. In fact it runs to over 7 hours of video and that's without time for the exercises and practice that we suggest throughout. This isn't for the fainthearted. It's for people who really want to step up and facilitate. We've put in a huge amount of effort to develop a programme that layers skills in much the same ways as I'd do it face to face if we had the opportunity to work together in person.

If you are only curious about facilitation and want a bluffers guide, or you want someone to be prescriptive and tell you what to do, then this course probably isn't for you - you'd possibly be better off starting with one of the lighter, shorter courses available on Udemy. Then, after that, if you want to ramp up your skills and accelerate your skills, then we'd be delighted to welcome you here onto our mentoring programme.

Why have we made it so long? Well the simple answer is we had a lot to say. But that doesn't really do the question justice. It would have made more commercial sense to make it shorter or to chop it into four courses, but we have a bigger mission. I really do believe that the world needs incredible facilitators right now and this course is intended to add value to people who share our vision and want to be part of making a positive difference in the world. I believe that facilitation skills really are that powerful. The world and business is changing at an ever increasing pace and highly skilled facilitators are already at the heart of helping people navigate change and find ways to thrive personally and professionally.

You are very welcome to join us if you're a complete beginner as long as you have a facilitation project in mind that you can apply the learning to. This material comes to life through application. It isn't intended as just theoretical knowledge. And also please remember this is mentoring not a formulaic programme. You need to be willing to layer your own learning and experiment to build your skills.

Of course having some sort of experience as a coach, trainer, consultant, youth worker, manager, counsellor, learning and development professional, charity support worker, change activist, project manager, or similar, will be massively useful.

There are five key categories of student that we tend to attract to this programme.

  1. Coaches, consultants, L&D professionals and 1:1 change agents who wish to develop their ability to work with groups

  2. Trainers who are recognising that the training landscape has changed and less and less classroom based training courses are being commissioned because students don't have time to attend, theirs an increased environmental impact to travelling to courses and most important here on Udemy is that traditional classroom learning is increasingly being replaced by e-learning. But these challenges are also what makes high quality facilitation skills so valuable - facilitation is about so much more than skills.

  3. Existing facilitators who are self-taught who want to compare their skills against other industry experts. It is sometimes hard to improve when you don't have anyone to benchmark against.

  4. Charity professionals and civil servants who are increasingly being asked to facilitate focus groups and stakeholder engagement sessions     

  5. People changing profession who want to gain a deep understanding of facilitation and have an inkling it might play a role in their future career.

Of course, you might not fit into any of those categories, but at least it's nice to know the amazing company you are keeping.

So what do we hope you'll get by the end of the programme? Well here are a few things that we think you should be able to do:

  • Develop a personalised framework for facilitation that enables you to elegantly structure a facilitation session

  • Structure frames to help steer a group towards positive change or learning and avoid potential pitfalls that could have derailed your facilitation

  • Differentiate between surface and deep structure language and recognise when and how to challenge the words used by group members to unlock learning

  • Build and cleanly set up group exercises so they run cleanly and maximise their impact

  • Set clean learning or change objectives that help you align the needs of sponsors with those of individuals within a group 

Given the over 6.5 hours of video, you can probably guess already that there will be so much more than that available on the programme, from opening the session with impact through to challenging dominant group members so everyone can speak. Sarah and I have tried our best to download everything we think you need to consider to build a powerful facilitation profile.

Let me tell you a little bit about me. I'm a professional executive coach and facilitator. I specialise in managing effective change and supercharging high performing teams. But previously, I've also facilitated a lot of personal development experiences. I've facilitated groups of disenfranchised young people through to blue chip boards. I work with charities, start-ups and international brands. I've facilitated sessions at 10 and 11 Downing Street with Tony Blair and Gordon Brown and have had the privilege of working with industry leaders such as Sir Richard Branson.

But what's even better, is the mentoring on this programme doesn't just come from me. I've invited Sarah Smith, one of the most extraordinary facilitators I know, to join me and share her knowledge and experience too. Sarah is an incredible coach and positive psychologist and former Head of Development at Cranfield University. Like me, she has huge experience working for some of the world's top organisations and blends a number of different modalities in order to maximise her impact with groups.

The programme varies between taught modules recorded especially with this programme in mind and classroom recordings from our 14 day NLP Trainer Training and Change Facilitation programmes. This makes the course feel much more interactive. It also saves you a lot of money.

You are probably visiting this course page because you have a passion or an interest in facilitating heart-centered and effective group offerings; offerings that are of true benefit to each of your participants, and to yourself as well. 

The Heart-Centered Facilitation Secrets is an excellent model and outline that can be applied to many different group offerings— workshops, classes, ceremonies, yoga classes, retreats, and intentional group gatherings.

When I am facilitating groups, success means cultivating shared intention, safety for all, inclusivity, authenticity, focus, and a living group field where magic is possible. Financial success also arises from this model because authenticity inspires trust, which results in return clients. 

I apply this formula of tools to facilitate Cacao Ceremonies and Cacao Ceremonialist Facilitator trainings, Restorative and Yin Yoga classes, Vocal Opening and Embodiment workshops, and women’s circles. It is effective every time. 

These tools are also applicable and effective in private therapy and healing sessions. 

This work has been formulated from my experience of offering over 5,000 public, live group classes and workshops. It is evolving! This already rich course will continue to expand as I add more material whenever I discover a new "key".

Facilitation Skills: Facilitating High Performing Meetings

A course to help you develop your facilitation skills for business

Created by Ross Maynard - Process Improvement Specialist

Students: 8, Price: $24.99

Students: 8, Price:  Paid

Aside from professional or technical skills, I believe that facilitation is one of the most important skills you can possess in business.

Facilitation is fun and empowering. It is a skill that will really boost your self-confidence and give you internal strength that will help you in many areas from interviews to presentations to working with teams.

This course will help you.

In business, facilitation is about being an intermediary through whom discussions and actions can be coordinated more easily; and decisions reached more efficiently.

Business facilitation comprises two elements:

1. Providing a structure for the session that encourages a breadth of thinking, and engages everyone in the group

2. Creating a safe environment for people to air views and work together in a spirit of cooperation and trust

This course, Facilitating High Performing Meetings, will cover everything you need to develop effective facilitation skills including the principles of good facilitation; planning a facilitation session; generating and refining ideas; action planning; and giving feedback.

It takes skill, patience and emotional intelligence to be a good facilitator. The most important part of the role is to balance the personalities and agendas of the participants to ensure everyone can contribute in an environment of openness and support.

This course will help you. I hope you enjoy it.
