Facilitation Skills

There is a growing need for people who can help groups and individuals work together more effectively to achieve their task. This is known as the facilitation role. The role is much more challenging than just running effective meetings. The facilitator needs to help clarify what needs to be achieved, understand how groups and individuals work.
