Good facilitators do more than just facilitate meetings. They bring consulting skills that enable them to coach and guide their clients and participants towards the identification and achievement of goals and outcomes that might be unobtainable without skilled facilitation. The Advanced Course in Group Facilitation is designed to provide relatively experienced facilitators with additional knowledge, skills and tools to further enhance their ability to provide facilitative leadership to others.
