Organisations today use the power of collective intelligence to leverage their potential for generating innovative ideas. However, team success does not depend merely on engaged and invested participants. Numerous variables have the capacity of “jamming” the collaborative process, for example, concrete things such as physical space can be an impeachment, as well as subtle things such as behavioural traits, people’s backgrounds, etc. In this context, the mediation of a skilled facilitator can make the process less stressful and more efficient for everyone involved. Facilitators also help to keep discussions focused and to best deal with emerging conflicts.

Facilitation Experience will teach participants the pillar skills of facilitation, empowering them to focus on discussions and handle conflict. Participants will leave this course fully capacitated to mediate groups in the process of innovatively building creative solutions based on Design Thinking.

Facilitation Experience is a mix of theory and practice that will give participants the ability to mediate any group in a creative process to innovation.

What our previous participants told us:

  • They felt motivated to share and apply your learnings>
  • They felt like "agents of change"
  • They felt that collaboration is extremely important: collectively they were smarter than individually
  • They felt empowered to build business models based on experimentation
