What do you learn during training?
The basis of the training is formed by the integral model. This model describes the three perspectives from which you can guide a meeting: I, WE and IT.
The first day is dominated by the I perspective. Who are you as a facilitator, what do you want to learn, what are your personal interests. How does these interests affect your interaction with the group and how you deal with resistance and ‘difficult’ behavior of participants.
The second day is devoted to the IT perspective. The facilitation process from the intake with the client, through the design of a workshop up to and including the implementation of the workshop, is central on this day.
The third day is dominated by the WE perspective. You will be learnt to deal with methods aimed at creating a common image in the group.
On the fourth day we integrate the three perspectives. Each participant is given the opportunity to demonstrate what he or she has learned during the first days of training by facilitating a short workshop from their own case. We start the day with the theory of intervention styles.
During the entire course you practice your skills as facilitator by standing in front of the group a few times a day. After each exercise you get reflection from the other participants and the trainers.
