Meeting Facilitators Get Real Results Using Tools from Edward de Bono

Master Trainer to Deliver de Bono’s Focus on Facilitation Training April 8-10

JOHNSTON, IA (02/21/2008; 1856)(readMedia)– Barbara Stennes, LTMT, CEO, and Founder of de Bono Consulting, is heading to Phoenix in April to deliver a Focus on Facilitation training seminar.

As a business owner and trainer for over 20 years, Ms. Stennes is one of only four Lifetime Certified de Bono Master Trainers worldwide and is the author of the book Innovation: Case by Case – How the de Bono Thinking Systems Have Transformed Companies Across the Globe.

Stennes helps organizations transform their thinking using Edward de Bono’s critical and creative thinking techniques, including one of de Bono’s latest courses, Focus on Facilitation.

Incorporated into the Focus on Facilitation workshop are tools from three of Edward de Bono’s courses, Six Thinking Hats, Lateral Thinking, and Management Thinking (DATT), integrating an arsenal of tools to boost facilitation skills.

“The Focus on Facilitation training is fast-paced, practical, interactive, and best of all,” says Stennes, “it helps meeting facilitators achieve significant results when they return to the workplace.”

“In this competitive world, employees are expected to do more in less time, and need to learn a set of skills and techniques to help them achieve the goals of the organization. de Bono’s Focus on Facilitation training gives meeting facilitators 23 proven tools they may use to lead any type of meeting.”

Focus on Facilitation participants also have the option of completing fieldwork assignments after the training to earn the de Bono Thinking Systems Facilitator Credential, which globally recognizes their accomplishments and professionalism.
