Our services are: Training, Facilitation and Consulting

Facilitation Training

Capability 1

We provide in-house training to a group of your staff so that you have a core of capable facilitators in-house.

Capability 2

We follow up by a process of co-facilitating meetings. One of our staff will  help plan the meeting and can be available to assist with difficult situations that may occur during the meeting. This is an effective way to coach your staff and to get them "up to speed" quickly.

Capability 3

We provide back-up consulting to assist your staff with planning difficult meetings or to facilitate those meetings which will be more effective if run by external facilitator. 

We offer web-based support. This is particularly valuable to overseas clients. contact LGA
