Seminar description of the moderation training

In the seminar moderation training you will learn how to lead a meeting to a result in a structured and goal-oriented way.

Your meetings will thus become a satisfying group experience with tangible results.

Methodology & Didactics of the Seminar Moderation

The seminar Moderation Techniques is characterised by its constant alternation between the demonstration of theoretical moderation tools and the practical application of these techniques. Only through the high practical component of this training can you evaluate the respective advantages and disadvantages of the different moderation methods. Feedback from the facilitation trainer as well as from attending experts and managers helps you to find your role as a meeting leader and to sharpen it in the facilitation training.

The facilitation training is enriched by trainer input, individual and group work. The intersectoral exchange of experience among the participants is particularly enriching. If necessary, video analysis is used in the practical exercises, which are preferably taken from your everyday facilitation situations.

Training materials as a transfer aid round off the sustainable learning effect of this facilitation workshop and sharpen your competence even afterwards.

How do you become a good facilitator?

You become a good moderator by exposing yourself to real moderation situations as often as possible. In the sense that moderation makes perfect. It is important that you appoint people in the group of participants in your meetings who will give you targeted constructive feedback after each facilitation. Give each person a focus for observation: Structure of the face-to-face or virtual facilitation, behaviour and role, facilitation techniques used, methods used for visualisation, and interaction with the group.

With the help of the feedback you receive, you can compare whether you have achieved the goals you set yourself before a meeting. In this way, you turn everyday professional situations into your personal facilitation training.

What are the tasks of a facilitator?

The role of a meeting leader is to provide a structured process for achieving objectives. He or she is responsible for ensuring that individual participants in a meeting grow together to form a group. Within this group, the individual strengths of the team members are to be recognised and used for the benefit of the group. During this process, individual interests are constantly taken into account and weighed up in order to finally achieve a result that is accepted and supported by all participants.

What types of moderation are there?

  • Facilitation of meetings and discussions
  • Workshop moderation
  • Virtual moderation via Teams, Zoom and GoToWebinar
  • Moderation of large groups (over 20 people)
  • Event facilitation
  • Train the Trainer facilitation

When is moderation useful?

Facilitation is always appropriate in cases where the creativity, experience and knowledge of people from different departments, companies and backgrounds are to be used. In most situations, the aim is for the participants to take part in the process of creating the result and not only to accept the result, but also to support it. In the course of implementing the action plan, a high degree of identification with regard to the work steps is to be expected.

How do you facilitate a workshop?

  1. Prepare and determine the goal of the moderation
  2. Select and brief the participants of the meeting
  3. Control topic, content and time during facilitation
  4. Activate group and steer dynamics
  5. Collect, cluster, evaluate and weight possible solutions
  6. Visualise intermediate results
  7. Initiate opinion formation
  8. Conflict management
  9. Achieve and record results
  10. Derive action plan and assign responsibilities
  11. Follow-up of the workshop
  12. Follow-up with the participants
