Event Details

Effective facilitation skills are a highly desirable attribute for individuals who wish to manage meetings and planning sessions in New Zealand for more timely and productive outcomes. Facilitating is more than just setting a meeting time. It requires skills in presentation, negotiation, elaboration and communicating with stake holders.

The PD Training Facilitation Skills Training Course teaches you practical techniques like choosing a facilitated approach, encouraging participation and gathering information, addressing disruptions, using reframing techniques, using intervention when required and much more. You'll learn key skills that can be used right away and the course is now available throughout New Zealand, including Auckland, Christchurch or Wellington.
