Group Coaching – Enabling and supporting individual development and growth in a group environment to arrive at personally owned responsibilities and actions

Team Facilitation – Bringing a team through their agenda to arrive at joint agreement and responsibilities for outcomes

Group coaching focuses on a group of individuals that  have different aims and objectives ,where team facilitation looks at groups that have a common aim and aligned objectives.

“Some people choose  to do this course because they have had  a bad experience either as an attendee or as a facilitator in group and team environments and they really need help in managing themselves in group situations more effectively.  Some attend because they have expertise and specialized knowledge to share with groups and they want to be ready to do so in the best way possible.  Some come because they know what they will experience and learn will help develop their confidence and skill set in their personal and professional lives.  What ever your reason – if  you need to work or engage in groups – this course will facilitate you doing it so much better “, Maureen Hewitt, Course Director
