A Coach Approach for Enhanced Facilitation

Over these two highly interactive days, you will gain an understanding of how a coach approach to group and team processes can lead to breakthroughs in learning, problem-solving and decision-making by maximizing inquiry, collective listening and diverse perspectives.

Together, in an atmosphere blending structure and emergent design, we will explore how key coaching principles and skills might influence your role, identity and approach as a facilitator. You will strengthen your practice of artful inquiry and use it to co-create agendas that engage participants while suspending attachments to outcomes. Working in small groups, you will learn to listen for and leverage language that is generative and develop your capacity to experiment in the moment based on what is emerging.

Learn how to:

  • Discern the level of individual, team and group readiness for a coach approach.
  • Utilize essential coaching skills to enhance learning, innovation, problem-solving, and decision-making.
  • Foster group and team dialogue through provocative inquiry.
  • Select between various facilitation processes in order to maximize successful outcomes.
  • Play in the unknown by attending to the emerging ideas, experiences and possibilities.
