In the competitive, fast-paced business environment, leaders must have the ability to engage and inspire their people to drive results.

Leadership through facilitation provides leaders with the tools and strategies to move their management skills to the next level. Leaders learn how to employ the eight key principles for “Taking a Facilitative Approach (TAFA)” to leadership, including: “Connect first, correct second”; “Ask and empower, don’t command and control”; “Set the vision, not the solution”; and “Seek participation, not just input.” During this workshop, participants will learn how to use the TAFA principles to become a facilitative leader.
