About the Event

We are delighted to offer a further 2-day Facilitator Training course on the 8th & 9th May 2018.   The role of the facilitator is crucial to the success of a Ministerial Development Conversation (MDC).   The relationship between the facilitator and minister is very much a partnership of equals and is built on the basis of integrity and trust.

The facilitator training will be conducted by the Edinburgh Coaching Academy and will cover a range of topics including;
• Demonstrating empathy;
• Building rapport;
• How to probe and listen;
• How to facilitate constructive dialogue;
• Diplomacy;
• Influence;
• Giving and receiving feedback;
• Confidentiality.

The feedback from the previous sessions has been extremely positive:

“I found this a very encouraging training course.   It affirmed skills I already have, helped develop them further and was enjoyable and helpful.   Sets the bar rather high for other training!”
