This was by far the best facilitation training I have ever attended, and I have gone through many. Moving from facilitating at the grassroots level in the Philippines--with indigenous peoples, victims, security forces and community activists--to "bigger" international spaces with funders, academics, and global advocates was an uncomfortable transition for me. I always felt that while I could leverage my community roots as a facilitator, I also had some capabilities lacking for this new area. Going through the High Impact Facilitation Intensive made me appreciate this dilemma in an entirely different way--I could embrace more fully my unique skillset while also being aware of other areas I can strengthen myself in, always keeping in mind the particular needs and character of the group. I am not only a more confident facilitator I am also capable of bringing out the best in my co-facilitators.
