Facilitation


Facilitation requires the skills of a topical trainer and those of an expert in group processes. The facilitator plans a program so that the sponsors of the event reach their goals with the targeted audience. In order to gain full participation from the delegates, the facilitator addresses all questions that are important at collective and individual levels. Acting as a point of focus and a guide in the process, the facilitator enables the participants to work towards the best-case scenario in their matter of concern.


The task is to assist a group in exploring situations, debating issues, agreeing to common goals and committing to actions with clear accountability.
