Who is this course for?

Frustrated by a lack of progress or decisions being made in meetings? Attending too many sessions that go off track? Or simply tired of Zoom call after zoom call?

Knowing when and how to bring people together, both online and offline is key to enabling your organisation to be more adaptable and responsive.

In this course you’ll learn the essential skills to improve your facilitation to deliver the impact you want. Whether that’s co-creating a new idea, bonding a new cross-functional team or facilitating your first agile reflections session.

What's in this course?

On completing the course, you and your team will be ready to: 

  • Bring a facilitation mindset to shape group dynamics
  • Assess when and how to bring people together
  • Respond to, rather than control your participants’ needs
  • Integrate interactivity into meetings, choosing great meeting openers and endings
  • Run great agile workshops and agile ceremonies

You will leave with a range of practical tools, templates and handouts that you can dip into whenever need. Plus the confidence to adapt your style and plans to both online, offline and unexpected events!
