Facilitation Skills and Moderation - SLE TRAINING

Would you like to gain more insights and experience in how to effectively chair a meeting and facilitate teams or groups? Are you passionate about creating a constructive and open-minded atmosphere in working groups? The training course provides participants with methods, tips and techniques for facilitating meetings and sessions.


Facilitation is a working method which plays an increasingly important role in professional everyday life. In facilitated processes the factual and the emotional relationship level are equally important. A professional facilitator must be able to shape both levels simultaneously and evenly to create a constructive and open-minded atmosphere in working groups. The focus of this training course is on the „how“ - giving the participants concrete suggestions for practical use.
