This workbook is aimed at highly motivated individuals interested in learning how to facilitate groupwork to make it more effective by structuring and guiding the process in a manner that allows each member to contribute. Good facilitators help groups make decisions and engage in action.
Facilitation is an essential tool for a manager who wants to work collaboratively with others. Leaders often use facilitation techniques rather than hierarchical power to motivate. Facilitation skills complements several other essential management skills such as decision making and problem solving.
The material in this workbook consists of the slides presented as part of the PowerPoint TM presentation used in the “Facilitation fundamentals” workshop. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the presentation, but we think that has a wealth of knowledge that is useful to anyone who is learning about teams and facilitation.
