Structured Facilitation Processes and Technology

ATC provides professional structured group facilitation in English, Spanish and more. The ATC team pulls from its broad range of workshop facilitation tools and techniques to compose structured facilitation processes that can guide your group toward its objectives.
 
In today’s time-driven organizations, fast facilitation processes are applied to accelerate progress. Meeting facilitation can be as critical as multi-day workshop facilitation.

  • Facilitation technology is applied by ATC when virtual workshop facilitation is required. 
  • A variety of team facilitation methods are used for both virtual and face-to-face workshops and meetings.
  • An experienced ATC team of facilitators is used for large group interventions.

ATC facilitators and certified professional facilitators (CPFs) have a passion for facilitator training, whether it is guidance with basic meeting facilitation skills or more advanced facilitation training. Let ATC design a specialized facilitation course for your organization.  The following are typical examples of facilitation applications:
