Process Facilitation Skill Workshop

TESTIMONIALS

This is a precious opportunity to learn from the amazing trainers from Pivotal, who created safe space for learning and empowered all of us to learn from each other. The diversity of the learners also enabled us to see how the skills that we were learning could be applied in different contexts, with the trainers guiding us in this process. It was very valuable to collectively unpack the keys behind process facilitation, which amongst many other things, require us to know our role and practice neutrality. I believe that I walked away with powerful tools and skills that are applicable in a broad range of different works, and going through this session enables me to bring more value wherever I go — across the different settings I work within. Process facilitation as a practice is part-science and part-art, and Pivotal is one of the few trainers who not only recognize this, but is able to skillfully balance teaching both aspects of the practice.

As someone who practices design thinking and facilitates design innovation workshops, this short and sweet workshop provides a great foundation. I was able to immediately see how impactful the key learning points were. Yen Kai walks the talk and it is great to see how masterful he is in putting the lessons into practice.

Process Facilitation is the key facilitation technique and set of strategies that support facilitators in the following tasks:


  1. Conduct engaging meetings that are effective and efficient
  2. Strategic Planning Retreat
  3. Focus Group Discussion
  4. Any form of discussion that requires group to ideate and make decision such as Design Thinking, Professional learning Team, etc.


We aligned our content to The International Association of Facilitators (IAF) ethics and core competency. Should you be keen to pursue a title of Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF, IAF),  at the end of the course, we would connect participants to IAF  as well as other upgrading courses available.
