We don't need to gather more, we need to gather better.

Traditional meetings at work are exhausting, time-consuming and unproductive. This comes at the high cost of wellbeing, productivity and creativity. That said, people are in high demand that can flip the switch from what we work on, to how we get there. These people set the stage to collaborate wisely. They delight and challenge their teams and peers. They improve collaboration, participation, and results.

In this Masterclass we will dive into how we gather and why it matters. Together we'll understand the roots of todays challenges and equip you to unleash the full potential of any group setting.

Overview

How is the programme structured?

Every module starts with a set of video lessons and is followed by a live workshop to turn the theory into practice. One module per week. Over the course of 4 weeks you'll be guided to shape, run and deliver your personal workshop.

1. Discover your inner Facilitator
Why should you step into being a Facilitator? Module 1 has your answer.

We're living in a world where teams thrive based on their ability to navigate through constantly evolving environments. A time of complexity, inefficiency, and death by meeting. This opens unprecedented opportunity for facilitators to raise the quality of collaboration.

Together we'll zoom out and understand the root of what is causing todays challenges and how you can step in to help overcome the resistance that holds teams back.
2. Set Up Your Facilitation System
Distributed work isn’t temporary. In fact, it’s just in its infancy.

Module 2 introduces you to the composition that you can use to setup, organise and run digital working sessions. You will get access to the Facilitator School Toolbox and end the week equipped to facilitate online.

In the live session of this module we will ideate your topic, set the objectives and go step by step from a blank paper to your online workshop board.
3. Train Your Facilitator Superpowers
Make your gatherings feel as smooth as butter.

Module 3 gives you the facilitation and hosting skills to deal with a group both online and offline. You'll learn a simple method to give great instructions, facilitating everyone's participation, synthesizing contents and managing the energy of the group.

As a facilitator you'll know how to leverage the gathering to create trust and connection.
4. Facilitate with Impact
Time to take your learnings to the working environment.

In Module 4 you will hold your workshop and follow up with all stakeholders. Afterwards we'll come together with all participants to reflect and learn from our experience.

The module forms the closing of the course but also opens a dialogue for meaningful gathering and team empowerment.

Context

Why is the programme interesting right now?

We find ourselves in a time of constant change and complex issues. Every organisation is faced with major challenges that can no longer be solved by individual experts alone. As a result, the type and quality of cooperation is becoming increasingly important.

But good cooperation is anything but easy. Teams are often under great time pressure and must achieve more with fewer resources. At the same time, the diversity of perspectives, skills and opinions available in the workplace are increasing, leading to more conflicts.

This makes facilitation, the art of actively accompanying group processes, a core competence for the modern workplace. It creates effective cooperation, supports meaningful group discussions and enables teams to make the right decisions.

Participants

Who is the programme intended for?

The course is designed for full-time professionals who work directly with people and want to actively shape the future. There is no need for professional speaking skills or years of training. The Facilitator Masterclass aims to give you the ability to facilitate and teach you what is needed to bring about positive change.

FAQ

Questions and Answers

expand_more
What is this course about?
This course will help you develop your facilitation skills and change the way you think about meetings at work. It will give you the tools to create effective meetings and workshops for your colleagues, so you can create momentum for your team and yourself. By the end of the course, you will have a proven system for facilitation, a digital toolbox to set up workshops easily, templates to communicate with stakeholders, experience of having run your own workshop and a community of like minded people to get support for your further practice.
expand_more
Is this course right for me?
There are no direct prerequisites for participation in the course. The course is designed to start from scratch and together we build an understanding of roles and an effective system for facilitation. The only important thing is that you need to keep track of the video lessons and attend the live workshops, as this is the core of the course.
expand_more
What distinguishes this course from other facilitation trainings?
Most trainings often take place in one or two consecutive days. This forces the participant to soak up all the theory like a sponge. Shortly afterwards, you are left to your own devices when it comes to the transmission work. This course is fundamentally different because it is part-time and aims to support the transference work through social circles, coaching, accountability and your own capstone project. You will not only build knowledge, but also self-confidence through first successes.
expand_more
How much time should I expect to spend?
You can expect to spend 2-4 hours per week. Unlike other courses, this course is part-time. Therefore, the course adapts to your agenda and not the other way around. The time commitment may increase if you want to put more work into the practice. We know from experience that the learning effect is greater when you try to apply the theory you have learned directly in your work environment.
expand_more
How is this course taught?
The video lessons are pre-recorded, tangible and in small chunks so that you can visit them on your own pace. We package the lessons in such a way that you can derive clear insights and actions. The live workshops always take place in a smaller group setting to promote direct exchange between participants and create an open, personal learning environment. This way, people learn from each other and can help each other with challenges. In the workshops we put a lot of emphasis on a practical reference and a "learn by doing" mentality.
