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!
