Course description


The Common challenges of meetings


In offices around the world people are not connecting. Ideas are lost or left unsaid, and strategies are not understood. This is not by choice, nor due to a lack of effort. A lot of the time people cannot connect because workshops or meetings are improperly structured, with too many things happening at once. 


A facilitator is a neutral party that coordinates group meetings and workshops. Every meeting is driven by two core elements; content and process. The process of facilitation consists of two key elements; stages and tools. Instead of allowing everyone in a meeting to talk freely about whatever they want whenever they want, the facilitator breaks a workshop into specific stages to keep the group on the same page.


CSA Facilitated Workshop Model is the backbone of our training. Most people working with groups know a few group tools, but rarely can use these tools to plan and execute a workshop that creates understanding, commitment, and concrete action. We use a simple three stage workshop structure called CSA. The words come from Clarifying, Solutions and Action. We start by Clarifying the problem or goal, continue by finding best Solutions and finish by making a concrete Action plan; what, who, when. The workshop structure is straightforward and not too complicated for the workshop participants to understand and follow. This training gives you the best group methods to facilitate the CSA stages and detailed instructions that help you facilitate your own workshop with success.

The training consists of five lessons that are designed to take five weeks. However, if you are in a hurry to learn, you may choose your own pace.
