1.What is Meta-Facilitation?

Meta-Facilitation is our unique methodology which was systematically developed based on our 20 years of field experiences.
Working at your field of community service or development, or implementing survey, have you come across questions such as

“How do I pose questions and where do I want to take this conversation to?”
“Standing right in front of project partners (or beneficiaries as you may say), how do I start my conversation as a project donner, educator or mediator/facilitator?”
“Should I guide them or should I learn from them and how?”
“How should I ask interviewees to get his/her real voice and fact?”
“I feel she is answering as if she satisfies me….”

Meta-Facilitation, also known as Dialogue-based facilitation, helps to unearth underlying problems of a targeted community thorough dialogue based on Fact Questions with community members.

It is unique in the way that it facilitates the targeted community to find their own problems, which ensures the sustainability of activities initiated by them. It is a useful methodology recommended to all the practitioners in International development field including CSR of corporations, welfare, education and local communities.

Training course on “Meta-Facilitation (Dialogue-based Facilitation” is to deepen your understanding of the concept and how to utilize it in your field of expertise.

(Key targets: Professionals in community development such as consultants, International/Local NGO workers, and expatriates of International agencies, Government offices and Students.)
