Growing beyond the exclusive domain of professional facilitators, facilitation has become a core competency for anyone who runs meetings, leads a team, or manages a project. In addition, the concept of facilitation is a vital core leadership capability. Based on Ingrid Bens' best-selling book Facilitating with Ease, your Observer Guide will give you an opportunity to test participants' facilitation skills by administrating the author's highly acclaimed Facilitation Skills Inventory (FSI). This tested assessment will help you provide invaluable feedback on the participants' core knowledge, tactical awareness, and observed behaviors. A flexible tool, the Facilitation Skills Inventory offers an opportunity for: * Corporations to use a standardized set of criteria in assessing the current skill levels and training needs of managers and leaders.* Employees to assess their current level of competency and help identify personal learning goals.* Trainers to design effective?classroom activities.* Educational institutions to reliably test for competence. The Facilitation Skills Inventory is an ideal starting point for gauging, better understanding, and honing anyone's facilitation skills.
