Advanced Facilitation Certificate Program

Are you ready to move to the next level of facilitation?

advanced facilitation certificate program, leslie robinsonThere is a quickening….an awakening occurring all over the world. Have you felt it? Our organizations, families, and we ourselves as facilitators, are all changing. Old structures and patterns long held as ‘the norm’ or ‘the standard’ no longer serve us. Many are being called to a higher purpose. We are in fast changing times and, as facilitators, we are being called upon more and more to lead the change.

The Advanced Facilitation Certificate Program provides simple, and elegant, facilitation skills to provoke deep, accelerated, and sustainable learning.

Combining facilitation frameworks and techniques with energy principles including the power of intention and the law of attraction, my Advanced Facilitation Certificate Program prepares facilitators to new ways of facilitating learning and change in these fasting changing times.

Simply, elegantly, powerfully, and highly effectively!

You get:

  • powerful facilitation techniques to accelerate learning and possitive change
  • techniques to harness energy principles to affect profound, sustainable and seemingly effortless learning and positive change
  • community of like minded practitioners
  • private coaching sessions
  • two retreats to really anchor in this new way of facilitating
  • weekly interactive webinars
  • recordings of all webinars so you can review at a time convenient to you

Simply, elegantly, powerfully, and highly effective…and it’s fun!

The Advanced Facilitation Certificate Program is ‘by application’. If you are a trainer wanting to take your skills to a whole new level, if you are passionate about facilitating positive change and empowering your learners and organizations, and if you resonate with this message, then please do apply.  We’ll have a short interview to ensure we are a good ‘vibrational fit’.

The program combines strong practical foundational facilitation skills and practice with subtle energy principles. It toggles between the left and right brain and between learning theory and practice.  You learn to facilitate as both the learner and the facilitator from the inside out and the outside in.

Participants will be required to submit journals of interpersonal interactions, observations of energetic dynamics.

The first 4 courses are open to everyone and are available in any order.  Each course builds on the previous one and so you are encouraged to take them in order.  All 4 courses are required as pre-requisites for the full Advanced Facilitation Certificate.

The best online learning I have ever had was with you. You allowed learners to select a learning approach (constructivist or traditional) and supported us all in that approach. The quality of learning and motivation I experienced provided me with increased feelings of self-efficacy and motivation to apply key adult learning principles to my learning and my work. I further witnessed the on-line community come to grips with the choice (Do I plunge in or not ?). It was amazing as folks started to think of education in a different light.

In considering the course I took with you and your online approach, I actually still use the list of adult educators competencies I discovered. I worked my butt off in your course but loved every minute of it. I joyously replied to posts, was engaged and looked for various pieces of research, contributed often, from both a scholar and a practitioner perspective. It was expanding and joyous.

I would be honoured to be part of your site and newsletter. Enjoy the journey!

Within the first week of my first course with Leslie, I began to realize that adult education is something much better, much broader and much more important than I had ever thought. I was challenged to examine my own best learning and to recognize the many ways adults learn. I was also encouraged to take responsibility for my own learning, to decide for myself what was relevant and important, rather than “performing for the teacher”. Here was the model of facilitating adults being put into practice and I suddenly became a learner-centered learner.

The biggest transformation of all occurred when I was invited to assess and evaluate my own learning by giving myself a grade and then writing and submitting the rationale for that grade. This was the embodiment of all that I was studying about adult learning! It was like standing behind a dark curtain and suddenly the curtain was drawn open and there before me was a beautiful pool of deep blue water, and I was invited to dive in. And dive in I did! As a result, I worked ten times harder, became a much more critical thinker, was ten times more creative in my learning, learned more thoroughly and with more relevance to me and my work, felt a greater sense of accomplishment and was able to claim my learning as mine, supported by Leslie, but owned by me. I have radically altered my adult education practice because of this experience and the results have been wonderful.

This experience has remained for me the most pivotal and the clearest example of “walking the talk” of adult education.

“Even better if…” we examine Leslie Robinson

Leslie is clearly all about creating a space where Adult Education and Learning can be discussed, modelled, dissected, and advanced. She was introduced to my colleagues, and myself, as being a founding voice.

Genuine and honest, Leslie shares success stories as well as experiments gone sideways.

“As a facilitator we have to give control to the learners…” says Leslie, who very much favours a class, course, and program that is free-form and organic. The concept of “Emergent Design” is something that celebrates the spontaneous and “unboxed” opportunities based on the learners expressed learning objectives.

Influenced by the work of Brookfield, Knowles, Bloom and Meg Wheatley – to name a few – she attributes the largest impact to come from her students. Bringing resources and making them openly available rather than referencing them only in lecture or in course print support material bolsters the idea of open-learning by invitation.

Achieving a Master’s degree in quantum physics and how people learn, Leslie feels she is living her dream. ” I have learned so much from this work” she states as she offers participants the same experience. “… I am about empowering learners to claim back their right to learn what and how they want to learn rather than following a proscribed curriculum. It does not matter what learning activities are used so long as the objectives are met.” “Everything can be learned using facilitation!”

Leslie has had contact with thousands of learners in courses, high schools, the corporate world, and with no-profits, Leslie’s focus is on training facilitators to facilitate. Leslie encourages us to

connect to the powerful learning through emotion in the affective domain. She encourages learners to explore the subtle and powerful in what, she calls, the vibrational or energetic or spiritual domain of learning. Leslie loves to turn things upside down and on their head. As an example she believes we should state the end goal and the let the learners ask and answer”…what do we need to get there?”

Adults search for meaning, and Leslie believes – now more than ever – it is the spirit of discovery through investigation of “what if” that individually, and collectively, we will have transformative experiences. Leslie has helped learners and facilitators to “…a greater truth in themselves.”
