Training & Facilitation

Adult Education & Skills Training
People learn by doing. It comes naturally and happens every day. What happens in a classroom is designed for the convenience of the educational system. What I offer is structured learning that works. It is called Action Learning, and involves learning about something while doing it. You learn, try, reflect, adjust, and try again. It is learning that sticks and lasts.
People need knowledge, skills, and the right mindset to remain productive in their work. The world changes constantly, requiring new knowledge, skills, and ways of thinking and being in the world. Continuously grow, learn and prosper.

Benefits of an Outside Facilitator



Competitiveness and personal agendas can get in the way of planning for an organization's future. This is where a professional facilitator is advised.

  • Keep conversation focused so you achieve your goals

  • Establish ground rules for order & courtesy

  • Assure everyone has a fair opportunity to be heard

  • Assist in raising questions and summarizing the discussion
A facilitor knows the background for the discussion and helps clients specify their goals for the meeting so the conversation does not stray from the topic.

Those who become emotionally charged are reminded to follow the guidelines set by all at the beginning.

Decisions made are documented. Timelines, responsibilities, and accountability are assured during a facilitated meeting.

A final report is submitted summarizing the event with any collated data collected.

When a thrid party matters

There are several techniques for bringing together large groups to identify and share knowledge, find synergies, come to a common understanding, negotiate differences, and resolve conflicts.

They all involve communication and a willingness to contribute since the facilitator is like the conductor for the orchestra. The players make the music.
A strategic plan is your road map to the future. Key stakeholders participate in identifying strenths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.

Then they plan how to increase strengths and opportunities while reducing the risks associated with shortcomings.

A strategy is a living document, regularly updated as things change.
An objective facilitator can be a powerful asset when negotiating business deals. Posing questions you may feel uncomfortable asking and enhancing mutual understanding is the goal.

Identifying the root cause of a problem is important. A facilitator can probe the cause-and-effect relationships of variables in a situation so you fix the problem at its source.

Conflicts occur in all walks of life. Most can be resolved without help. Others need an objective and rational faciltator to reach an agreement. Save time and frustration in reaching your goals.
