A Discussion about Facilitation Skills

Written by CMOE Development Team

Continued from page 1

Even as we started to develop this Facilitation Skills program with CMOE, we struggled. Early on, I remember getting onrepparttar phone with Steve Stowell to just talk out some ofrepparttar 144147 issues because it was so different from anything either of us had seen inrepparttar 144148 consulting industry. Steve and I continued to struggle with how we should put this course together, and what it should look like, because for me, it is really on that soft side. It is not a skill. It’s being able to use your intuition and read a group and readrepparttar 144149 dynamics in a group and know how to react torepparttar 144150 flow of what is going on in a group, and pull people in or help to redirect other people if they are not contributing in a positive manner, again without controllingrepparttar 144151 group.

Q – So is there just not a lot of material out there on Facilitation Skills?

Julia –There is a lot of courses out there on Facilitation, but nothing like what CMOE has created. If you look at what is out there onrepparttar 144152 market they don’t haverepparttar 144153 same focus that CMOE’s course does. A lot of what we were seeing out there underrepparttar 144154 name of Facilitation Skills is really meeting management. There is a big difference. This is really more facilitating group interaction or ‘high performance’ facilitation.

Q – What isrepparttar 144155 target audience for Facilitation Skills?

Julia –The plan was that it would end up being for everybody. The original goal was to first giverepparttar 144156 skills to management, and then give it to all employees. When managers were first going throughrepparttar 144157 course,repparttar 144158 feedback we got was that it would be extremely useful forrepparttar 144159 team members to haverepparttar 144160 same skills. It would make facilitatingrepparttar 144161 group so much easier if everyone understood what was going on in terms of task, climate, and behavior.

Q – Can you see any improvement in your facilitators as a result of being committed torepparttar 144162 Facilitation Skills Workshop?

Julia –Absolutely! The people that were inrepparttar 144163 first class have definitely noticed an improvement in their facilitation skills. We haven’t done any structured observations, but just from our ad hoc types of settings where they are leadingrepparttar 144164 group and I am a part ofrepparttar 144165 group, I have definitely seen an improvement. I think it plays out, not only in terms of a structured meeting, but also in how they go about doing their jobs on a day-to-day basis, becauserepparttar 144166 principles that are taught in Facilitation Skills, as with Coaching, go beyond justrepparttar 144167 structured setting. Yes, I have seen a lot of improvement in those people, and it mainly has to do with their confidence level.
