Introducing Basic Facilitation Skills: a hands on learning workshop to teach you the art of group facilitation run by the Government of Alberta.
Are you a member, a volunteer or a staff representative for a not-for-profit or government organization?
Do you and/or others within your organization or network plan, develop, organize, evaluate and make decisions for your organization as a team? Are you and others needed to plan and lead facilitated group discussions?
Would you like your organization’s group meetings and working sessions to be carried out in a more “facilitative way”?
If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, your organization or network needs to have someone skilled in the art and science of facilitation!
