Help them make the most out of every meeting.

Rambling group discussions, tangential concerns, difficult attendees, and unclear objectives can all derail a facilitated event—and often do. But more than just learning how to avoid the pitfalls, effective facilitators ease the way for groups to achieve desired outcomes, redirect them to constructive paths, and rally commitment to action plans. 

Expert trainer and facilitator Kimberly Devlin has designed interactive half-day, one-day, and two-day workshops to develop the essential skills of facilitating meetings that inspire, engage, and get results. Complete with all the activities, handouts, assessments, and presentation slides you will need to accelerate learning, these programs make planning your next workshop easy, whether you are new to facilitation or a seasoned pro. 

Free tools and customization options

The free, ready-to-use resources (PDF) that accompany this book include downloadable presentation materials, agendas, handouts, assessments, and tools. All workshop program materials, including MS Office PowerPoint presentations and MS Word handouts, may be customized for an additional licensing fee.

About the Series 

The ATD Workshop Series is written for trainers by trainers, because no one knows workshops as well as the practitioners who have done it all. Each publication weaves in today’s technology and accessibility considerations and provides a wealth of new content that can be used to create a training experience like no other.

Kimberly, I purchased the Facilitation Skills Training Course. I am looking for the PDF PPT's contained in the book showing as thumbnail images. The book said I needed to come to this site to download. How do I access/download them? I am not looking to change or modify them.

Are there any in person Facilitation Skills Trainings offered in the US in 2019?
Hi Hannah -

Sorry if there is any confusion...purchasing the book entitles you to the free downloads of the pdf files of the training materials contained in the book as thumbnail images -- WHEW! (free stuff is good!) That is true whether you purchase the paper based or pdf version of the book. (read on to the next comment for more...)

Since some people prefer reading books as pdf files instead of paper-based, that format is an option for the book purchase. The ATD terms of sale for a pdf book are for individual use/viewing as opposed to printing or editing. So, if you are in need of editable files of the training materials in the book, you will want to determine which license is correct for your needs – the time a license will save you during development will easily offset the fee for customizable materials. Feel better?
