Who is this course designed for?

Facilitators who want to grow into their leadership role, find presence and purpose in their practice, wield personal power with prowess – and guide groups towards a shared vision, through productive group dynamics.

As an efficient ‘space holder’, your newfound leadership confidence will increase participant engagement, without pulling you into over-enacting the content or becoming domineering.

To be considered a great facilitator is a true testament to one’s ability to lead.

Leadership and facilitation are two sides of the same coin – and a great leader/facilitator can…

  • Listen to others and truly hear their intentions
  • Empower individuals and teams to achieve outcomes
  • Create safe spaces for participants to be vulnerable
  • Hold an air of authority, without being domineering

Maybe you look at leaders in your life and wonder “how are they so natural?”… in Leadership Through Facilitation, we’ll show you how.

Our Intention

We believe facilitation is not just a skill — it’s a life and leadership tool that can amplify the impact of your work. 

Learning to be a facilitator is not about learning a bunch of techniques, exercises and activities.

Our tool-agnostic approach teaches you to enable the skills you already have, leverage them for maximum impact and build upon your current toolkit with confidence-building methods.

Learn in a group setting, get accountability & support – and gain access to some of the industry’s most esteemed experts.

Words from our Alumni

Molly Penn
President at Penn Creative Strategy

“This course was amazing! I felt so lucky to learn from 6 different brilliant professional facilitators and to see where they agreed and where they differed.

I gained access to loads of resources and tools to make me a better facilitator, and I got to practice all these new skills with an amazing cohort of fellow learners, who I look forward to remaining connected to in the years to come!”

“I am still learning – it is not a one-and-done experience.

So many impulses and ideas to mix and match (2+2=5…000). I believe now more than ever that mastering facilitation is a core capability of leadership. I also realised how much more I have to learn and how much I love facilitation. Thanks for sharing your passion, your knowledge and your kindness towards all of us. Great course!”

“The ‘Leadership through Facilitation’ course by NDB was THE learning experience of the year for me.

This program was different. It was (at times uncomfortably, but joyfully) experiential, reflective and non-compromising. We explored deep topics and got inspired by the practice of expert facilitators. 

Ultimately, I felt a deep inner shift within me, and I was able to discover with the help of the supportive cohort & faculty, a new side to my facilitator self. I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who seeks to facilitate (make things easier for others).”

Are you one of us?

Join the global community and start designing,
growing and harvesting the next facilitation crops.
