Effective Facilitation is key

Meetings are a necessary part of working in any group – they give us the chance to share information, to reach decisions and to get jobs done. But meetings have another important function, which is often forgotten about – group maintenance. A good meeting not only gets work done, it also involves, supports and empowers its participants, creating a high level of energy and enthusiasm. A sense of community and connection to fellow group members is the basis for successful group work. Good facilitation will help you to achieve all of this.

Global Edulink is passionate about training, and as such, provides a course that gets to the very heart of learning what it takes to be an effective facilitator, and essentially a good communicator.
