ABOUT THE COURSE
This course explores the skills and concepts needed to complete a successful professional facilitation. Facilitation involves the established practice of facilitation techniques to assist groups, businesses, and professional organizations to resolve problems. The problems brought to a facilitator impact all that are a part of the group, business, or organization. Common examples include disputes faced by community & civic organizations such as school boards, city councils, or county governing entities. Other groups who seek a professional facilitator include churches, businesses, clubs or unions. The course provides an overview of professional facilitation techniques with a single role-play at the end. Taking this course would be a good preparation for more advanced training as a professional facilitator.
