Facilitation Skills Training


Today’s leaders need to know how to lead productive and engaging meetings to get more done, faster. Whether these meetings take place in conference rooms, on the phone or on the web, Guided Insights’ facilitation skills training workshops can help. By learning and practicing new skills and tips with their colleagues, participants emerge as confident and competent facilitators, ready to apply what they’ve learned immediately to their own work.

All of our workshops are customized to reflect the actual challenges and needs of each participant group. Our facilitation skills training workshops are delivered both onsite and virtually.


“Our Team is grateful for the opportunity to learn from Nancy at our recent Facilitation Skills Workshop.  Her deep knowledge of Facilitation Skills was obvious at every turn, from the planning process, the way she modeled best practices, her communication style, responsiveness, attention to detail, and ability to customize and understand her audience to deliver the best experience possible.”

David Thomson, Midwest Regional Director, National Park Service, Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program

“Nancy customized a facilitation skills training program, and provided tips and tools for continuing education , which has already paid off with more productive meetings ever since.”

Casey Erisman
Manager of Program Services, Consortium for Energy Efficiency

“Nancy was a great instructor and it was very apparent how well she understands the topic of facilitation skills. I enjoyed all of her examples, which were so relevant to our work. These trainings flew by– they were interesting and engaging and I came away feeling better prepared to plan and execute focus groups with our members.”

Guiding principles that set our facilitation skills training workshops apart:

  • Learning sticks best when the content is customized to real-life situations
  • Most facilitators need to be adept in both the face-to-face and virtual worlds
  • People need a safe place to practice handling difficult situations and challenging dynamics

Our facilitation skills workshops can be run both onsite and virtually, or a combination of ways.
