When outcome, results and people matter.

Team leader and business owner leading informal in-house business meeting

Course duration: 1-2 days


The success and quality outcomes achieved through group meetings, discussions and trainings are highly dependent on the skills the facilitator brings to the session. This Advanced Facilitation Skills training course is designed for anyone needing to develop stronger facilitation skills, such as guiding the group’s preparation, enabling agreements, defining roles, while presenting persuasively, as well as effectively managing the group’s engagement and input.

This 1-2 day program, presented by Glass Rock Solutions, will provide participants with practical skills that will enable them to ‘hit the ground running’ straight away to facilitate highly engaging, outcome-focused group sessions, using a combination of proven methodologies to ensure participants develop confidence and maximise their unique individual presenter strengths and personality.

Target Audience
This course is designed for anyone who will be involved in facilitating groups’ thinking and decision making.

Participants will gain the confidence to facilitate clarity within audiences of varying levels of seniority and subject matter expertise to cohesively achieve the desired outcomes.
