A facilitator guides and intervenes to get decisions, solutions and alignment.
Facilitation is a term being used for many purposes. At Metonomy, we define a facilitator as someone whose focus is on the group process and not on the content of what the group is working on.
Great facilitators ensure that meetings are productive and that groups of people give out their best work both online and in person.
If you are interested in developing your skills as what is commonly referred to as a "workshop facilitator" we invite you to check out our page on skills for trainers.
Here’s what you’ll be able to do by the end of this training…
Prepare yourself for an epic journey. This training will significantly alter your presence as a facilitator both online and in person. You will walk away more confident, with a wide range of tools and skills, to enable groups of people to do their work more effectively. Here are some of the conversations we will have together.
Organize, plan and run productive and engaging meetings.
Support the fundamental group processes: communication, problem solving, decision making and conflict management.
Develop a keen and attentive listening that goes beyond the surface content.
Select from a wide range of facilitation techniques to elevate discussions, evaluations, analysis or creativity.
Differentiate between what's really happening and interpretations made (yours of those of others).
Manage the environment
Bring a new awareness to your management of time, space and energy with any group.
Deal with the unexpected
Expand your ability to get groups of people back on track in the face of the most surprising challenges.
Develop the ability to powerfully and effectively intervene to support groups when needed.

Consolidate your learning into your professional life so this training does not remain in your notes or as a list of good ideas.
The feedback you receive is often impractical or unusable. You will learn to give and receive valuable feedback that elevate your performance.
More than tips and tricks, or best practices, frameworks give you entire operating systems to be and act from.
Each training includes four rounds of practice sessions. This experimental setting allows you to learn by doing.
