Facilitation Skills for the Agile Workplace - TORONTO - November 2018

Facilitators help groups do their best work together and practice shared leadership. From solving problems to improving processes, skilled facilitators draw on a variety of techniques according to the people and the context.

Facilitation Skills for the Agile Workplace invites you to discover a range of facilitation practices that will equip you, as an agile coach, scrum-master or any leader, to support the diverse team processes you'll encounter. From exploration to decision making, every group interaction presents unique challenges.

In this participative and practical workshop, you'll explore and practice group facilitation tools and techniques. You'll learn to design group meetings that engage the audience and result in agreed-upon outcomes. It goes way beyond "memorize these rules." You'll build your capability in a safe and supportive group environment and gain valuable feedback.

This workshop is designed for agile coaches, team leads, Scrum Masters and other leaders who face the daily challenge of supporting different groups of people in working better together. You will do well in this program if you have a strong desire to help people improve existing interactions or adopt new practices.
