Becoming a trainer for the Effective Groups course

The TTT is a 1-day training for 10 participants or less. The course is designed to meet the needs of the participating individuals so they can more confidently convey the materials. It will dive more deeply into the 2-day course materials and their methods of delivery. Those interested in the 2-day Train the Trainer course will need to already have experience in training, teaching or facilitation as well as having hands-on experience dealing with group dynamics. An application form follows.


Effective Groups itself is a dynamic and engaging training course which covers key skills for collaboration:

  • Creating systems for teams to work effectively together

  • Developing an enjoyable and fair atmosphere to work within

  • Making order in the chaos to find freedom within a structure

  • Utilizing diverse perspectives as an advantage instead of a problem

  • Balancing achieving goals with keeping your team healthy and effective

  • Managing conflicting needs and paradoxes, both within and outside the team

  • Developing the skills & mindset to cross stony ground without falling out (or over) with each other!
