Facilitators often ask...
"What do you do with a client who does not appreciate the value of process facilitation?"
"How do you make the most of your facilitation by using different learning approaches? "
"How can facilitators deal with negative body language of participants?"
"How do you build the perfect meeting agenda?"
"How do you build confidence in all of the facilitator competencies?"
Come and learn, practice, be re-inspired, or imagine your vision as a facilitator!
This one-year online cohort offers live sessions with peer practice, feedback, facilitation skills training and more!
A Powerful Spectrum of Facilitators
Join a small international collaborative year long facilitation cohort. Our 2022-23 cohort included experienced facilitator participants from three continents and six countries. We meet every month on the third Wednesday of the month at 7 or 8 am PT. You get 12 group sessions, plus you will have access to hundreds of facilitation resources and templates. All for the price of $1500-1800 USD. That’s a savings of many thousands of dollars given the cost of running this. Please take advantage of this incredible opportunity. It will never be offered again in this way.
This plan is perfect...
