The facilitator course introduction

TrainYouCan Accredited Training Network in South Africa who also offer the Train the Trainer Course also known as Facilitator course is aimed to accredit you as the Trainer or Facilitator to be SETA certified that is also nationally and internationally recognised by most countries.

Good facilitation helps a group achieve your purpose by hearing each other, coming to understandings, pooling your wisdom and making wise decisions. The facilitator focuses on both purpose and process. The purpose is what the group has agreed to discuss or make a decision around.

Conflict is a natural part of working in a team. While conflict may at first seem destructive and may not feel very comfortable, it can be creative.

The facilitator’s job is to support everyone to do their best thinking. They create an environment where everyone is encouraged to participate, understand one another’s point of view and share responsibility.

Facilitation skills are the abilities you use to provide opportunities and resources to a group of people that enable them to make progress and succeed. Some examples include being prepared, setting guidelines, being flexible, active listening and managing time.

Why is Facilitation Important? Facilitation is important because meetings of large groups of people can be very hard to organize as well as to control when they are in progress. First of all, a facilitator can help members of a group get to know each other and learn to cooperate.

Facilitators often teach courses that require reflection and application of information to a job, such as communications, leadership, problem-solving, and more.

Facilitator Course Introduction

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

TrainYouCan trainers are all professional facilitators who have the expertise to design and lead effective meetings, team and organisational processes.

Successful meetings harness the wisdom and experience of everyone present to reach outcomes they couldn’t have achieved individually.  We work with you to determine what needs to be achieved and then manage the group process so that everyone does their best thinking.

We can add value to:

  • Conference facilitation and presentations
  • Strategic planning
  • Meetings
  • Forums and events
  • Team development sessions

There has been a growing realization that we have to pay attention to the Facilitator Course process elements of meetings if we want them to be effective. With its focus on asking rather than telling, and listening to build consensus, facilitation is the new leadership ideal, the core competency everybody needs. Managers and supervisors are often asked to Facilitator Course rather than instruct or manage their meetings and training sessions.

How can you facilitate, rather than control, group decision-making and team interaction? With no formal training, people may find it difficult to make the transition from instructors or managers to facilitators.
