Training is didactic - it's one personal teaching another person how to do something. This is hierarchical as the trainer is a teacher.
Facilitation (or facilitated learning) is the art of raising a challenging or controversial topic and encouraging the students take more control of their learning process.
Facilitation is collaborative. It is especially effective for colleagues who need a structure for thinking through new information, issues, or ideas.
A facilitator provides the structure and tools, controls the energy in the room, models the expected behavior, helps everyone to be heard, respects all viewpoints, and leads the discussion to a conclusion without influencing the result.
Bottom Line - Training involves learning - facilitation involves both learning and thinking.
Facilitated training in 1, 2, or 3-day workshops, week-long training, or continuous learning courses.
Facilitated leadership training can exponentially improve your company's leadership training program.
