It goes without saying that an effective facilitator is one of the most important components for a successful fatherhood program. To be an effective agent for change, a fatherhood program must be implemented by quality facilitators.

Offered by the nation’s fatherhood leader and delivered by NFI President Christopher Brown, the Effective Facilitation Training teaches you the characteristics and skills to be an excellent fatherhood program facilitator, adult learning styles that affect how your participants learn and engage, and how to properly prepare to effectively facilitate each and every session you lead.

  • Part 1 > The Facilitator: Characteristics and Skills
  • Part 2 > The Participants (Fathers): Learning Styles, Autonomy, Mastery & Purpose, Cognitive Biases

Taking Fatherhood Facilitation to the Next Level

I thoroughly enjoyed the Effective Facilitation Certificate Training. As a facilitator, I am passionate about the work that I do as I engage fathers. One thing that I try to do is be a life long learner. This training has raised my game to the next level. It reminded me of things I should do such as properly preparing for each session, workshop, or group I facilitate. The training also challenged me to take a look at four types of group facilitation skills and how I facilitate to see where I could raise my game. Learning about the different adult learning style is and how to ensure implementation is a useful tool I will always keep. The timing of the training was perfect for the summer as I prepare to facilitate my next NFI 24:7 Dad group.

Highly Recommended!

I was very impressed with the simplicity and efficiency of this course material. I am teaching a few different curriculums and this one is by far the most streamlined. I was very impressed!
