The Facilitation Center is an internationally
recognized management training and leadership development consulting

and are customized to meet your needs. Both facilitation training
and our workshops are available on or off site.
Using best practices from leadership development, teambuilding,
and strength-based approaches, the Facilitation Center offers
education and training for at risk youth, their families and service
providers. Available on request, the 30 hour “FLAME”
program can be offered to groups or individuals. One-on-one coaching
is also available on an hourly rate.
Managing dialogue and group processes can be a challenging task
in our diverse and complex work environments. Facilitation skills
provide the means by which leaders and managers can produce high
performance results from teams and decision groups. This 3 level
certification series is designed specifically for mid to upper
management and management consultants.
Manage time and resources towards meeting your outcomes. Strategic
planning workshops offered by the Facilitation Center provide
a proven process for effective strategic planning that accelerates
outcomes achievement. The process focuses on structured dialogue,
inclusion, consensus-building and decision-making which are useful
for creating visions, performance objectives or outcomes, policy
formulation, and action planning.
An international consulting firm, the Facilitation Center custom
designs all of its in-house training programs, workshops, and
process facilitations to meet the specific needs in outcomes,
timeframes, scheduling challenges, and unique characteristics
of each organization. Our professionals are committed to meeting
the needs of the organization and individuals rather than marketing
a specified approach. In business since 1993, we have served clients
at the local, state, regional, national, and international levels;
worked with Fortune 100 companies and executives; heads of state
and leaders in all stages of development. Our skills include conflict
resolution, teambuilding, dialogue management, systems thinking,
and consensus decision-making.
