Facilitating a Successful Peer Group
The QUALITIES of an effective facilitator
Turn to page 20 of your workbook
Using the diagram in the workbook, note down the qualities that your group need, or would like, from facilitation. These should be placed in the ‘not important’ and ’important’ circles. For example, an important quality might be they are a ‘good listener’.
Reflecting on our own qualities
Now turn to p21. Using the qualities from the previous exercise, write these into the chart on the next page – consider which of these qualities you feel you have and give an example of when/where you have demonstrated them
The wheel of strength
Turning to page 22 now in the workbook, look at all the qualities listed in the WHEEL OF STRENGTHS. Take a moment to read through these and identify if there are qualities you hadn’t considered? For the final task – please add these to the chart on the previous page.
You have now reached the end of lesson 7 – Congratulations. Feel free to take a break here or move straight onto lesson 8.
