|FoCuSeD™ On... | Class Abstract | 3 days|
Trainer: Gary Rush, IAF CPF
"We know that anyone can be successful if they are able to guide their group through a facilitated process to accomplish their task. They produce better results that have the buy-in of all stakeholders enabling the greatest chance of success."
This 3-day highly interactive class teaches you not only "how to"; it also teaches you to understand the "why" so that you can perform effectively. FoCuSeD™ guides you, enabling you to plan the emotional group cycle along with the workshop/meeting process enabling communication to create collaborative useful solutions - one without the other is fruitless. This class covers People Skills, basic Process Design, etc. It covers effective Facilitator skills and tools necessary to facilitate the overall business management strategy into the product solutions so needed for business success - achieving support and commitment from stakeholders. It helps build your skills and confidence - it develops Collaborative Leaders.
This facilitation training class is ideal for anyone working in project management, Six Sigma, TQM, and other quality initiatives.
Until FoCuSeD™ , facilitation techniques have been either about process or people skills. FoCuSeD™ contains a unique concept for developing structured agendas with an understanding of the two parallel developments occurring, "the workshop/meeting process and emotional group cycle", that must be holistically planned to achieve collaborative useful solutions. It is not sufficient to select a workshop/meeting agenda and then insert exercises in different steps and hope that it works. See It's time to get FoCuSeD™.
FoCuSeD™ provides guidance as well as specific tested structured agendas to enable consistency in any type of workshop/meeting. FoCuSeD™ is an approach to information gathering where group workshops/meetings replace individual interviews. FoCuSeD™ fully integrates methodologies with communication and group dynamics to derive consensus-based information.
We believe that the process to build agendas and deal with people is the same whether you are dealing with business, technical, or any type of subject. We believe that theory is needed and teach it to provide a background. We teach specific "how to"; we provide detailed People and Process tools and, as an IAF CPF Assessor, Gary covers the IAF Core Facilitator Competencies and what students need to learn to achieve them. To be a successful Facilitator you learn by doing. In our class students practice 40% of the class time and receive comprehensive assessments along with a recorded session facilitated by the student.
This class is available on-site anywhere in the world. Please contact Gary for additional information, pricing, and scheduling.
