Learn how to facilitate meetings and interact with your team effectively

Agile Team Facilitation is a facilitation and teamwork training course designed in accordance with ICAgile International Consortium standard

During the training you will learn how to conduct meetings as effectively as possible, understand how to work with team responsibility and team engagement, as well as:

Learn how to create your own facilitation plans and strategies

Our approach
The training is structured around real-life cases and role-playing, so that all participants can try the role of a facilitator, putting the necessary techniques and tools into practice.

The feedback from both the team and the instructors highlights points of growth and areas for further development.
Sharing Experience
During the training we:

● analyze real-life cases,
● share templates of session designs,
● work through difficult meeting situations,
● make several facilitation demos from the trainers
Contact with the team
We dedicate a lot of attention to the psychological aspects of working with people:

● teaching participants how to build relationships and find rapport with the team,
● analyzing group dynamics and a facilitator's role in it,
● studying a facilitator's position and neutrality,
  • practicing transferring decision-making responsibility to the group.
We tailor our training program to a company's specific needs so that it would be more useful and help fulfill specific objectives.

Our participants always give us feedback on the comfortable and safe atmosphere that makes it easy to engage in interactive communication and gain hands-on experience.

"First of all, for complex problems and tasks, it is virtually never possible to find a single expert who possesses all the necessary knowledge. Therefore, the first task of facilitation is to extract and integrate the necessary knowledge from different minds. And second, plans and solutions most often fail to be implemented not because their content is bad, but because the people in charge of implementation have not been properly involved in the development of these solutions. Getting them properly involved is the second task of facilitation."
