Do you aspire to lead transformational workshops, training programmes or retreats?
Do you wish you knew how to get people to speak up, engage and participate in discussions?
Do you want to learn how to handle challenging participants with skill and ease?
The Art and Science of Facilitation is an intensive 2-level course in the fundamentals of facilitation that is designed to equip facilitators with the skills, mindsets and practical tools they need to create powerful, meaningful and engaging workshops and group experiences.
This course is for you if you are a facilitator, educator, HR or Learning & Development professional, or if your work calls for you to facilitate meaningful group discussions and gatherings.
Participants can choose to participate in Level 1 training which is for facilitators who facilitate simpler workshops and training programmes, or those who are newer to facilitation.
Following on from Level 1 training, Level 2 training is for advanced facilitators whose work requires them to navigate more complex group experiences e.g. handling senior level participants and stakeholders, navigating more complicated situations and team dynamics, targeting deeper levels of transformation, more challenging audiences, or larger group sizes.
Master facilitators Crystal Lim-Lange and Dr. Gregor Lim-Lange will lead this training programme, and each intake of participants will be deliberately kept to a small group so as to ensure every participant receives personal attention and coaching.
Our Deep Human approach
Our approach is highly experiential with an emphasis on transformative learning. Deep Human Facilitation Training is designed to develop three aspects of facilitation skills - intrapersonal skills, interpersonal skills and situational / group skills:
Internal skills that help you control your focus, manage emotions and optimise your mindsets so you can face challenging and volatile situations with self-mastery
Social skills which will help you connect better to others, understand others motivations and build trust, empathy and engagement
Situational / Group Skills
Situational skills which focus on group dynamics and develop a culture of psychological safety so that people feel confident to engage, trust and speak up
We are offering 2 levels of training:
LEVEL 1 - Intrapersonal and Interpersonal Facilitation Skills
