Mastering Group Facilitation ™

Are you responsible for designing meetings, facilitating workshops, or training large groups?

Come join us for a 3-day intensive led by Laura Freebairn-Smith and Leah Hancock where we will explore and practice the skills of a master facilitator.

It is in group events – meetings, workshops, retreats, and more – that much of our work is accomplished and connections made between people. Group events are most effective when led by powerful and transformative facilitators; leaders, managers, committee chairs, and anyone leading groups on a regular basis can become a powerful and transformative facilitator. Mastering Group Facilitation provides the tactics, theories, and self-awareness practice to help you become a superb facilitator. Along the way, in this three-day workshop, you’ll discover tools and techniques that will transform other parts of your life because parenting, marriages, friendships, and all forms of relationship are improved through the same tools that produce good facilitation and dialogue.
