Professional Facilitation Services

At CATALYST Training Services, we believe that sustainable facilitation is an Art, not just a skill. It is a unique ability to ignite the potency of a group’s assets, expertise and talents towards their desired future. Beyond our personalized approach, the key to our success is to focus on the underpinnings of desired behaviors, rather than the symptoms. Our in-depth understanding of group dynamics and our ability to tap into people’s motivations and perspectives when dealing with undesired behaviors, we assist them to identify and rewire the root causes of the personal or organizational limitations. When moving a group toward a desired future we begin by addressing and upgrading the perspectives, beliefs and values, which produced the current reality.

All too often facilitation focuses on a quick fix, and although there are times when the band-aid approach to facilitation is appropriate, rarely does it stick. If you want long-term impact, you must immerse yourself in an applicable and comprehensive process.

Our areas of expertise:

  1. Challenging and identifying NEW thinking for Strategic Planning.
  2. Taking teams and organizations to the next level of Breakthrough Performance.
  3. Issue based mediation–Closing the gap between personal, team, or organizational vision and their current limitations.
  4. Resolving emotionally charged situations and interpersonal conflict, building upon the past to grow forward together.
  5. Assisting organizations to deal with various stages of group development.

PODCAST: WHAT IF...We are ALL in this LIFE TOGETHER?

by Greg Cortopassi | Weekly WHAT IF

“Our team had a long history of interpersonal conflict which made many members, including myself, dread our periodic meetings. We had tried numerous ‘facilitated retreats’, ‘conflict mediation sessions’, and other forms of intervention only to meet with very short-lived success. Your ongoing programs and facilitation have taught us how to relate to one another effectively by enabling all of us to understand and appreciate each member’s personal style. More importantly, you gave us the skills and tools to ensure that, with minimal effort, we will continue to flourish and succeed as a team. For the past several months we have been utilizing these simple yet effective tools daily. I see no sign that the old conflict-riddled way of communicating is creeping back among team members. Without your intervention, I am certain that our team would have continued to further disintegrate into chaos, and ultimately, ruin.

I would not hesitate to recommend your services to any team, regardless if they view themselves as healthy, in crisis, or somewhere in between. Keep up the great work!”
