What is it all about?

JumpShift have trained 100's of people in facilitation skills in a number of organisations. Many of these people are now facilitation experts within their organisations and some make their living as facilitation consultants. The programme includes a full day workshop, plus a two hour virtual follow up session. Additionally you will receive a comprehensive A5 facilitation toolkit for future reference, and an online workspace for action planning, collaboration and soft copy resources.

The workshop...

One day workshop – essentials – workshop covering the facilitation basics:

  • Make a case: ensure you have the 'why' in place.
  • Plan: pre-empt and plan a process that removes 90% of potential issues.
  • Run: dealing with all those tricky people.
  • Follow up: deliver lasting value.

On the job action – including participants planning and facilitating at least one workshop.  1:1 coaching from our experienced coach is included.

Two hour follow up workshop – recap experiences, share lessons and provide additional skill building on the key facilitation basics.  Put in place continuing development plan based on DIY.

Optional extra – Ongoing coaching support and reviews every three months.

Our approach is based on our proven Diagnose – Inspire – Your ActionTM (DIY) process, and combines workshop based learning with on the job actions. 

Key outcomes

  • Allows you to make a case for why a facilitated process is the right method to use (very important)
  • Plan and run the facilitated session so that it will get actionable outcomes that the participants have strong buy in to
  • Follow up the facilitated session so that it delivers outcomes to your organisation
  • Sets in place a culture of constantly improving facilitation skills.
