Spotlight on CF2

IMG_3611Many people ask about the difference between CF1 and CF2. In a nutshell, Creative Facilitation 1 introduces models and techniques for bringing the arts into your work, while Creative Facilitation 2 is all about you as a facilitator.

CF2 will enable you to develop the key competencies and communication skills required to lead powerful learning programs. We take you “behind the scenes” and show you the secrets of how to make the magic happen with your groups.

Like CF1, it is highly experiential training, you have the opportunity to practice facilitating in a safe supportive environment and gain valuable feedback that will elevate your skills.

In CF2 you will learn:

  • How to relate and respond to challenging participants
  • How to create a safe space for honest and creative expression
  • How to present yourself comfortably, clearly and confidently to a group
  • How to design and deliver effective lessons, workshops and meetings
  • How to help a group come alive and develop a high level of participation

Creative Facilitation 2 is for you if:

  • You really want to up your game as a facilitator and deepen your level of connection with your groups
  • You’ve always wanted to lead creative programs for diverse groups but didn’t know how
  • You have already created and run group programs, with varying degrees of success, and you want to take it to a much higher level

What People Say

“The Level 2 training gave me increased self awareness. I was able to try a new way of structuring activities, with greater intention which will make the learning even more transformative for my students. The feedback from the group showed me small tweaks I can implement that will make a big difference when working with my groups.”
