Train the trainer programs for facilitation skill

For over two decades years now, we’ve been in the business of creating impactful learning experiences. What makes our work unique is our ability to blend an understanding of behavioural psychology and the use of creative methodologies to meet the learning needs of a business audience. We understand, in a deep way, what makes learners bring themselves fully into groups, connect their own experiences to the topic and take the risks of expressing themselves or trying out new skills or receiving feedback.

In our facilitation programs, participants learn how to design a learning event and how to observe and meaningfully use the dynamics of a learning group. They become aware of their unique styles as facilitators and learn how to flex them.

The audience for these workshops is both aspiring facilitators and experienced facilitators who would like to add to the depth of their work. Our programs are designed in a way that participants experience for themselves the power of the concepts and frameworks they will be using with their learners.
