FACHC: Christchurch Real Facilitation Skills Course


·         Why do I need to know how to facilitate group sessions?

·         What does the course involve?

·         What outcomes can I expect?

·         Who am I learning from?




A well executed project relies on good input and buy in which you have all the time right? One of the skills that enable you to get this all-important input and deliver the results is being able to facilitate group sessions.


Being able to facilitate effective group sessions is essential to manage stakeholders and deliver results;

·          Effectively facilitating groups is an efficient way for a project manager to gain input from a wide variety of people get the benefit of other peoples thinking and ensure that divergent ideas converge on a common theme.

·         Effective facilitation can ensure your stakeholders are bought into your process because they have all had their chance to contribute.

·          Effective facilitation can ensure your stakeholders are on the same page, and are able to measure your projects success in the same way.


We all know groups can achieve a lot more than individuals. We know the value of bringing different groups of people together to solve problems, improve processes, or develop new opportunities.

The key is in being able to elicit those outcomes through an effectively managed process. Hand-in-hand with all the skills required to effectively manage a project process are the skills required to effectively facilitate a group to get the input and buy in you need. 



This is a two-day course covering;

"This course was REALLY GOOD as it actually delivered specifics.  In most courses youre given generic information like 'You should deal with conflict by disarming the situation' but in this course youre given specific and realistic tactics to do the disarming."
Quote from a new facilitator who was then preparing to run their first big workshop and has since run three additional workshops with great results.

"Brilliant two days, learnt a lot and helped cement what I already knew. Ice-breakers and quizzes throughout the two days lifted energy levels and refocused.  One of the best training sessions I have attended, I highly recommend it."
Quote from a very experienced and capable facilitator.
