Description of the training

This is one of the very few trainings during which you cannot get bored and the more you gain the more you put your own commitment. The training has a form of interactive workshop during which you gain knowledge about Facilitation from the basics - starting from distinguishing tasks and process as well as the role of Facilitator and Leader of  the Task. Day after day, participants become more and more aware of the group process.  They learn (and try on themselves) further tools, techniques and models. At the last day of training they are trying to plan their own "Facilitated Workshops".  They learn how to make a contract with a group and prepare a Process Agenda for their own workshop.

Participants can use their knowledge in their workplace immediately after completing the training,  starting from everyday activities, and ending with  various types of meetings.
