A great deal of learning and experimenting – challenging and lots of fun.

Luis Carvalho

Course Overview

The Team Agility Facilitation workshop will help you develop the attitudes and learn the skills of an effective team facilitator.  You will learn and practice techniques and behaviours from the world of professional facilitation and creative problem solving, in the context of meetings such as Planning Meetings, Retrospectives, Creative Thinking and Design Thinking workshops. Participants will leave the course feeling empowered with skills, models and styles of facilitating. Whether facilitating virtually or in-person, this course will equip you with the skills and confidence to unite, focus and mobilise teams.

Topics Covered

The Agile Team Facilitator Role

Team Agility Facilitators foster collaboration amongst team members. Here we introduce you to the attitudes and behaviours that make a good (even great) facilitator.  You will have the chance to reflect on your own personality characteristics and when certain characteristics are useful (or not).

Development Path for Agile Coaching

Additional skills are required as one advances along the Agile Coaching development path. These include not only facilitation skills but also professional coaching, mentoring, teaching, and consulting skills.

Designing and Setting Up Meetings

A lot of the work around facilitation is thinking work in advance of a meeting or workshop. In this part of the course you will encounter tools and techniques for use before, during, and after meetings and workshops.

Facilitating a Meeting

As this training is particularly experiential, you will have the opportunity to facilitate parts of meetings and to receive feedback from peers, using the facilitation tools and skills learned.

Facilitating Collaboration

Maintaining awareness of our own style of working, and of other styles, allows us to facilitate more meaningful and inclusive team dialogues. Here you will learn about your own working styles, and consider what changes you might want to make to your working style profile.

Facilitating Agile Practices

In this part of the course you will be presented with approaches to facilitating practices such as standup meetings, planning meetings, retrospectives, and design thinking workshops. You will experience witnessing and facilitating these activities.

Skillful Facilitation Techniques

This part of the course offers approaches for working with different stages of team maturity and team development, and working with team dysfunctions.

Virtual Facilitation Techniques

Regardless of whether this course is attended in-person or virtually, attention is paid to both in-person and virtual facilitation techniques with a particular focus on one or the other depending on the delivery mode of the particular course you are attending. All tools taught and practiced are equally applicable to both delivery modes.
