Group Facilitation Coaching Methods


Build a Culture of Participation with the Technology of Participation – ToP Methods

The Promise of the ToP honours the ideas and diversity of every individual.   At the same time ToP is visually stimulating, socially interactive, and personally creative.  It impacts people’s hearts and minds.  Moves each forward toward implementation of decisions.  ToP facilitation is a transformative process that supports the wisdom of a whole group.

Move beyond “seat-of-the-pants” facilitation and reliance on instinct, to use the most powerful facilitation methods and coaching processes available. Learn step-by-step approaches to clear thinking, sound decisions, solid consensus and open dialogue.

Learn how to:

  • Facilitate and coach groups more effectively.
  • Make meetings more productive and efficient.
  • Focus a diverse group’s energy on common goals.
  • Create a sense of teamwork.
  • Improve staff morale.
  • Tap into group creativity to maximize productivity.

Learn the Focused Conversation Method which provides a structure for clear dialogue and reflection, probes beneath the surface to the depth of a topic, encourages a diversity of perspectives and leads to decisions. Learn the Consensus Workshop Method to engage participation of diverse group members and create genuine consensus. Build effective team partnerships and lead large groups effectively.

Insightful learning for experienced as well as novice facilitators, this signature two day course is available in-house. It will make an immediate and dramatic difference in your understanding and practice of facilitation to become an facilitative leader.
