For all professionals whose work involves helping groups improve their processes and effectiveness. This programme develops your intervention and relationship skills. It will increase your confidence through skill development and a greater understanding of the group dynamics involved. It has been running since 1994 in a continually developing form.

It gives you practice in the interpersonal skills of managing a group, along with an in-depth understanding of interventions and how to make them effective.
The course mixes lots of practice with enough theory to provide you with a solid understanding of why you do what you do and most importantly it builds your confidence through extensive feedback on your facilitation style. The course is designed to walk the talk and to provide a living example of facilitation that can be examined and questioned as it proceeds. It uses the experiences of those attending to build upon the learning supplied in the programme.
Over the 15 years it has been running people from an extensive range of businesses and backgrounds have attended. People with all levels of experience and requirements. HR professionals, learning and development mangers, occupational psychologists, consultants, project managers and many more.
The programme demystifies group dynamics in order to help facilitators find their way through the life of a group. It clarifies and explores the role of emotions within a group working together and unpacks the skill of confronting obstacles to effective group performance within group and individual behaviour.
