Facilitator training options for improving professional skills

  1. 1. Facilitator Training Options for Improving Professional Skills Organizational leaders are always looking for ways to save money and while the first instinct is to start letting personnel go or trim the operating budget for a certain department, the best strategy is to identify inefficiencies. Holding meetings is one of the most inefficient activities that an organization can do. Each meeting uses up time and money by taking time away from salaried employees who could instead be spending that time doing what they were hired to do. If the first meeting is unsuccessful, organizational leaders will schedule additional meetings as they try to diagnose a problem or come up with new ideas. In order to make sure that a meeting achieves its objectives the first time, many organizations hire a facilitator. This professional has completed facilitator training and uses the skills he or she learned to guide a group discussion. The facilitator begins by working with the group to define organizational objectives. Next the group leads a discussion of how the organization will be able to achieve those objectives. If a facilitator has completed strategic planning training, he or she will also be able to lead a strategic planning meeting so that the organization can focus on improving its immediate and long-term strategies. Below are two of the most common types of training that a facilitator completes, and how hiring an individual with either type of training will benefit an organization. Facilitator Training
  2. 2. When an organization wants its meeting to be led effectively, it will bring in a facilitator from outside the organization. Professionals who want to serve in a facilitator role must undergo facilitator training, where they will learn how to provide meeting support before, during, and after the corporate gathering. The facilitator will research company objectives and the overall business environment, and then distribute this information to meeting participants so that everyone is brought up to speed. During the meeting, the individual will lead the discussion by asking probing questions. Individuals will also learn during facilitator training how to conduct ice-breaker games, bring an off-topic conversation back on track, and how to mediate personality conflicts. Strategic Planning Training Strategic planning is the process that a company uses to match goals with the company's vision. An individual who has undergone strategic planning training is capable of determining the major issues affecting the company. Once issues have been identified, the facilitator leads a meeting where organizational leaders discuss the problem and try to reach a consensus on a long-term solution. During this discussion everyone will be given a chance to offer ideas or convey concerns while the discussion leader will rely on his or her strategic planning training to ask the difficult questions that those within the organization are too afraid to ask. By hiring a professional that has completed strategic planning training, the organization will be able to create a long-term strategic plan that allows it to meet its objectives.
  3. 3. If organizations do not want to hire a facilitator from outside the organization, they can also consider hiring a leadership training organization to provide strategic planning training and facilitator training for an organizational leader.
