Facilitation enables effective and innovative thinking, individual and team performance and agile leadership, especially in changing environments.
The art of facilitation is key in harvesting and activating wisdom, skills, and energy for generative results that are much more than the individual can produce on their own. This is increasingly important in a knowledge-based world of work where significant outcomes depend on multiple intelligence perspectives. The leader in this "intelligence economy" does not direct work but rather orchestrates collaborative thinking and powerful processes that generate expansive results.
GIBS' Facilitation for High Performing Teams will develop the required knowledge, skills and awareness to build, enhance or cultivate leader's facilitation capabilities. The Programme offers both theory and practical experiences to enable understanding of the role of the facilitator, explore group dynamics and energies and explore the various competencies, techniques and tools that will allow you, as a facilitator, to tap into collective wisdom and drive evolutionary outcomes through impactful facilitation.
The Programme is led by GIBS' Professional Associate and owner of Change Pace, Riette Ackermann, who has a Master's Degree in Personal and Professional Development and is a qualified Business Coach with the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
Guest speakers offer expertise in Facilitation and Learning, Facilitation and Psychology including the psychology of complex systems and Facilitation and Authentic Improvisation.
