Facilitation skills that disrupt, innovate and empower

Good facilitators are worth their Salt



When was the last time you were in a room with an incredible facilitator?

Think about it.

It is rare to see someone facilitate a group well.  

Without realising it, as changemakers and leaders, you often find yourself facilitating meetings, processes, activities and teams. Are you the fabulous facilitator you want to be?

Do you get the results you want?  Is there room for improvement? Do any of these apply to you?

  • You want to lead a team to achieve their purpose
  • You want to facilitate more effectively
  • You want to understand group dynamics
  • You want to be a better member of a group, yourself
  • You want to build collaborative teams
  • You have never had formal facilitation training

If so,  it is time to book into The Art Of Facilitation programme.  It is a practical, experiential course where you will develop the skills and ability to facilitate any group to meet its purpose.

This experiential programme will introduce you to attitudes, develop your personal qualities and give you a presence that distinguishes a person-centred facilitator, grounded in place, space and grace.

You will be coached and receive feedback from programme leaders and the other group members as you facilitate the group.

Over the five day course, you will learn 

  • to understand group development cycles and the role of the facilitator
  • to clarify, identify and create a group purpose
  • to build a safe and empowering group culture
  • the whole personhood approach and, be present to yourself, others and the group
  • to practice a range of interventions, processes and techniques
  • to be comfortable with a wide range of behaviours
  • to effectively handle conflict for the development and benefit of the group
  • to recognise and work with different energy levels in yourself, others, and the group

Are these some of the facilitation skills you would like to further develop? If so, register or email the programme leaders Simone to find out more or go to the website.

The nuts and bolts – each day there will be

  • Topics to study and discuss
  • Sessions to facilitate
  • “In the Moment” coaching
  • Self, peer and programme leader assessment
  • Experiential challenges, and
  • Homework which will include core readings and preparation for your facilitation sessions

Level: beginner to experienced (particularly if you have no formal training or experience with the Zenergy Facilitation Methodology). By the end of the course you will have developed your confidence and facilitation skill set to be truly effective and impactful.
