PDF-InformationWorkshop Facilitation

Workshops that are longer than half a day require a clear structure and more intensive preparation than shorter meetings. Facilitators thoroughly analyze the subject to be discussed and select the focus, the working method and the methodology in a targeted fashion. They come up with the structure and assume responsibility for the duration of all parts of the workshop. In this seminar, you will learn to plan workshops and to use their structure to lead people with the help of a main theme.
