Course description

The Virtual Facilitator Micro-Workshop Series

The Virtual Facilitator Micro-Workshop Series

Virtual meetings and training workshops are an absolute necessity for geographically dispersed teams who need to collaborate to drive projects, solve problems and/or exchange critical information. Ineffectively led sessions, however, can be complete time wasters, undermining the group’s productivity and buy-in.

The reality is thatvirtual meetings require even more rigorand understanding of facilitative techniques than in-person meetings. Facilitation First has designed a series of highly interactive micro-workshops that will be delivered via Zoom or your organization’s preferred video conferencing platform
