Tips for facilitating a successful workshop

Lighthouse Consulting Group finally did it! We facilitated a half-day workshop about facilitation. With the support of Connecticut Sea Grant, we looked into our past experience, brushed up on the current research and re-read the classic “how-to facilitate” guides to develop a customized afternoon of experiential learning. With a focus on each individual, we covered:

  • attributes of a successful facilitator
  • Tips for ensuring workshop success – applying lessons that we have learned
  • Dealing with different and difficult workshop situations

By the end of the day, participants were able to describe their own personal facilitation styles and how to work to individual strengthens so they could select the tools and approaches that were going to work from them.  A summary of the PowerPoint we used is here: [Facilitation workshop tips for skill building for POST] if you want to take a peek at what we covered.
