Facilitation Skills for Trainers Workshop


Imbedded in the word “facilitator” is the word “facile.” To make things “facile” means to make it easy.  And that’s what great facilitators do: They make it easier for participants to learn and be involved in a group setting. This workshop is for current or future trainers who know that there is a lot more to training than presenting!


This powerful seminar will show you how to become a facilitator, not just a presenter. You'll learn to build rapport with audiences, keep their attention, get them participating and most importantly to help them gain new knowledge and skills.


This intensive workshop uses proven techniques to increase facilitation skills.  To get the best results training needs to be directly applicable to your workplace.  Therefore, Corporate LearnOvations’ programs are customized to meet your strategic business goals and use your organization’s terminology and scenarios.  If you wish, we can train your staff to teach your own courses.
