MG Rush Facilitator Training and Facilitation Training

We train facilitators and provide facilitation training. We specialize in structured facilitation; the type used in most important workshops, team meetings, and retreats. Our facilitation technique is ideal for project management, strategic planning, and quality initiatives. Our training is applicable to business, technical, government, and community environments.

We’ve been training facilitators since 1985. We are the originator of the FAST workshop facilitation technique. Our facilitation techniques were developed after extensive research into alternative facilitated workshop techniques and after many hours leading sessions.

Our FAST technique is in use at hundreds of organizations, including the largest and most successful worldwide. We are a pioneer and the recognized leader in facilitation forinformation gathering, ideation, planning, analysis, dispute resolution, collaboration, and decision-making. With our training, you’ll improve your confidence, leadership, efficiency, and effectiveness with groups, workshops, projects, and teams.

MG RUSH has been providing facilitation training since the mid-1980s. Based on extensive research of effective facilitation techniques and many, many hours of applied facilitation, FAST was created to fill gaps left by other techniques, to formalize our discoveries and innovations, and to enable others to make facilitated workshops useful in all team/workgroup activities. We’ve since created CHOICE as the evolutionary step beyond FAST.CHOICEincorporates several years of intensive field testing of new techniques that reflect the modern organization: distributed, electronic, multi-cultural, and a heavy emphasis on quality and project management excellence.MG RUSH has seeded FASTand CHOICE techniques at hundreds of companies, including some of the largest, most recognizable in the world.
