Getting people aligned is not easy!

Different opinions, different interests, even different emotions all mean different people struggle to focus on the same thing. But sometimes we need to get people to focus together. Sometimes we need people to learn together, to brainstorm together or to find win-win solutions together. How can we get people to focus on the same thing?

The answer is facilitation.

Facilitation is the art (and science) of enabling groups to focus on achieving a specific goal. And in this workshop you will learn a set of tools to help you achieve exactly that. These tools can be used in a variety of contexts, including training, workshops and meetings.
