Zenergy Stage 1: The Art of Facilitation

17 - 21 October 2018 in Daylesford

The Art of Facilitation Programme is a practical facilitation skills training programme held over 5 days. The experiential programme uses a whole person framework that provides new and experienced facilitators the tools, skills and learning necessary to facilitate any group to meet its purpose.

The programme is for leaders in community, business and government working in social, cultural and ecological health, environment and education who want to deepen their skills in working with groups, teams and clients in complex environments. The community rate may apply to community, start-ups and NFP.
The experiential nature of the workshop introduces participants to the attitudes, personal qualities and presence that distinguishes a person-centred facilitator, grounded in place, space and grace. Participants are coached and receive feedback from programme leaders and participants as they practice facilitating group processes relevant to their field.
The Art of Facilitation is the Stage 1 of the Zenergy Facilitation Diploma. Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the Zenergy Diploma include the International Association of Facilitators Core Competencies for Facilitators that relate to facilitator education. These competencies are required to attain the IAF Certified© Professional Facilitator Accreditation, which is internationally recognised. After the attendance of the Stage 1 programme, participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance for 40 hours of Facilitation Training.
