How many times have you sat through a poorly run meeting, knowing that if the session were being better facilitated, you would be accomplishing twice as much in half the time? 

Discover the skills, knowledge, and behaviours to help you effectively facilitate in a wide range of situations. This 2-day, 14-hour workshop will introduce you to the core competencies of facilitation, modelled through the use of multiple engaging facilitation techniques grounded in adult learning.

You will gain a greater understanding of your own personal facilitation style and learn how to use your strengths to maximize your effectiveness as a facilitator.

  • You will learn the basics of purpose-driven meeting design.
  • You will deepen your facilitation toolbox.
  • You will learn strategies for maintaining your composure when things go “off the rails…”

…all grounded in real-life examples drawn from the instructor’s 20+ years of experience as a community-based facilitator in Canada and internationally, as well as the rich stories of the others joining you in the course.

"Really great topic. Rebecca lead a great class and gave really helpful and important information."

"Very smooth online delivery. Tasteful use of online apps/tools."

"The structure was really clear and well done. I liked that the first day has a lot of theory to lay the ground work and the second day was very practical and 'hands on'."

"Rebecca used Zoom to her advantage to deliver an excellent workshop!"
