Responsibilities, Challenges and Abuses of Facilitators

The facilitation techniques included in this membership site will help you in all three critical areas below:

The Single Greatest Responsibility of a Great Facilitator:

Creating a safe and comfortable space for self and group discovery.  Learn how to set up an environment and deal with difficult people to fulfill your greatest responsibility.
[hr]

The Single Most Abused Role of a Facilitator:

Using the opportunity to ask questions that get participants to answer the way you want.  In other words, manipulating the conversation in the debrief so self-discovery cannot happen.  Learn how to ask GREAT questions that create dialogue.
[hr]
Or even worse, to use the opportunity to show everyone how smart YOU are.  This process is not about you or what you know!  Be a Guide on the Side and not a Sage on the Stage.
[hr]

The Greatest Challenge of a Facilitator:

Ignoring any training and/or past experience you may have had in curriculum instruction or education as a ‘teacher’ or ‘trainer’.  Seriously.  Being a facilitator is not about you, but about the participants and their learning.
