Facilitative Leader Training

This highly successful seminar helps you solidify and improve your fundamental set of leadership skills. We use a meeting framework as a way to observe how you lead others and drive change, and we help you to find innovative ways to lead participants to work together as a team, share ideas, make decisions and accomplish goals.

We’ll give you the tools and techniques to plan and lead change. Our three-day, applied skills workshop focuses on key leadership concepts, tools and techniques and helps you position yourself as a clear leader in the eyes of others in your organization far beyond the meeting room.

Definitely one of the best trainings I have attended. The instructors brought ‘facilitation’ to a whole new level and I am confident I will run much better, more effective meetings from now on. I will definitely recommend the training to more colleagues hoping our company will one day become a more efficient place to work and be a part of.

… I am not exaggerating when I say the tools I learned this week feel life changing (it sounds dramatic but it’s true).  I am so genuinely thankful for what you have taught me and allowing me the opportunity to join the program this week.  If we roll this out, and I hope we do, Equinix better look out, this is going to be huge!

… The class was nothing short of amazing and I’m very excited to utilize the skills and tools that we learned over the intensive three-day training!  I am extremely grateful for the experience, the learnings, and the ability to participate in such a powerful, relevant, and necessary course.  If we utilize our learnings, PG&E will see a great return on investment!

… To change culture, we must provide new methods to all we work with. Understanding these skills will allow a shift in our culture for a systemic perspective. This is the first training that I attended where I left feeling it was so worth my time… 100%!
