301: Facilitation Fundamentals
Why take this training?
Many agencies now recognize the need to develop in-house facilitators to deal with many of their collaborative projects and environmental disputes.

In this workshop learners experience the facilitation role through realistic role-playing exercises involving governmental and non-governmental stakeholders. This exercise creates an interactive forum for developing and applying basic facilitation skills in intra-agency and interagency as well as other group settings.
