Who Needs This ?

RapidConsensus™ teaches facilitation skills to get groups to contribute and take ownership for their actions. Most groups leap from problem to solution without stopping to consider or design a preferred end result. This facilitation skills course holds up the thinking of a group. It encourages them to pause and create where they would prefer to be before deciding on the best way forward.

RapidConsenus™ focuses on the key principal of engagement. That is to get people involved. When the right people collaborate to design outcomes then consensus becomes possible. This facilitation skills course shows you how to get those types of results. Fast.

The skills taught on this facilitation skills course can be used within team meetings or as the overview for large conference lasting several days. The principles are the same: use the right tool, create the right conditions and hold a group in process to enable them to create their best way forward.

The course provides plenty of opportunity to practice your facilitation skills and build on your learning. This is a terrific facilitation-training course that leaves you with a flexible model and the skills for successful sessions.

Strong facilitation skills underpin productive group sessions. Previous participants of this facilitation-training course have told us they successfully use these tools and techniques within team meetings. In addition they use the techniques learnt as a way to focus their teams on daily targets and at conferences to facilitate collaborative discussions between stakeholders who don’t always agree. If these situations apply to you then you will enjoy a RapidConsensus™ course.

This facilitation-training course is great for situations where as a facilitator you require a group to design a better more desirable future. Actions are then developed from this preferred future state. This in turn will lead to better engagement and greater optimism for the outcomes derived from your session.
