Participant Impressions
What our alumni are saying about the training
The ATF class from Co-Actors exceeded my expectations! The instructors provided clear learning objectives and shared additional materials on facilitation techniques and frameworks.

This was my second facilitation class in two years. Naturally, I expected the material to be repetitive, but this concern was in vain. I got a new perspective on facilitation and the role of a facilitator. In addition, I gained essential insights into the facilitation structure and practised various intervention practices. I learned to reduce the time box for activities without sacrificing the quality.

Denis and Oksana provided a safe environment where I felt comfortable to try new things!

The Team Facilitation class from Co-Actors is a compelling investment for self-development and business. In addition, it is a great way to have a good time. Besides the standard tools, it allows you to see yourself as a facilitator from the outside, get valuable feedback from classmates, and improve your facilitation skills and emotional intelligence.

The main gain for me was the ability to finally distinguish the roles of a manager, leader, and facilitator and get a more conscious view of teamwork and the goals of each function.

Special thanks for creating a safe and comfortable environment in this VUCA world!

The class was built around lots of practice. Each participant had multiple opportunities to try on a facilitator role and get helpful and caring instructor feedback. During the course, I felt safe and had no fear of mistakes.

The ATF training was excellent. It provided a proper balance of theory and practice. I haven’t felt such pleasure from participating in an educational event in a long time!

Now, I know how to design various meetings and feel ready to deal with difficult situations. Additionally, I realized how to stop carrying the weight of all the meetings on myself and decrease the stress at work.
