Mentoring & The art of facilitation
Facilitation is not about standing in front of a classroom and talking at people. It is not about reading from a powerpoint. It is not about authority or hierarchy.
Facilitation is an art, and works like an ecosystem, with many components feeding into each other, creating a collaborative, co-operative synergy.
The components of a good workshop or course work the same, with consideration to group energy, times of day, duration of exercises, the balance of theory and practice, fluidity of content, comfort and atmosphere.
A good course or workshop is like a good book, movie, song or essay… it needs to have the right recipe that will carry the participant through a coherent journey.
Do you want to teach workshops but lack the confidence?
Would you like to facilitate but your unsure of where to start?
Are you wanting to educate others about a topic but you are overwhelmed?
