easier than you think...your
life is already an improv!
improv techniques to become a more effective facilitator,
trainer, and group leader
The Improvisational Facilitator Teleclass
The inner attitudes of facilitators, trainers, and leaders are keys
to their success with groups. However, very few trainings address
the development of those inner qualities that can make a good leader
great. That's why I'm thrilled to be offering this class where we'll
present powerful, practical improv techniques that are actually
inner attitudes and practices that you can use to immediately enhance
your facilitation, training, and group leadership skills.
This dynamic teleclass, led by master trainer,
Sue Walden, is for anyone who facilitates, manages, teaches, mediates,
coaches, counsels, directs any group. This highly interactive course
provides an experiential approach using very novel exercises
to help you build the skills to create an environment for participation;
one that encourages openness and risk-taking for you and groups.
