Facilitation enables effective and innovative thinking, individual and team performance and agile leadership, especially in changing environments. The Latin word 'facilis' means easy and therefore, Facilitation can be described as the act of making something easier. Facilitation is one of the key processes in driving learning by harvesting and activating wisdom, skills and energy for optimal, generative results.
GIBS' Essentials of Facilitation Programme will develop the required knowledge, skills and awareness to build, enhance or cultivate individual's facilitation capabilities. The Programme offers both theory and practical exercises 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.
