IISC Ireland Testimonials

“Facilitative Leadership has been a transformative experience for Age NI. It has enabled us to increase our reach and positive impact on the lives of 150,000 older people in Northern Ireland annually. The programme raised the calibre and thinking of our strategic leadership team. It also enabled us to develop distinctive and game-changing approaches to our policy and influencing activities; care service delivery; and work across the wider age sector to increase the voice of older people across Northern Ireland.”
Linda Robinson, CEO, Age NI

“Some say leadership is an art, some say leadership is a science. But there is nothing that ‘packs a punch’ and makes us think about the true meaning of leadership the way Facilitative Leadership does. IISC Ireland delivered its Facilitative Leadership workshop with Cavan Co Council Peace III staff and members and I can say that I have not experienced a professional development training opportunity that has matched it.  I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to make social change happen!”
Jane Crudden, Programme Manager, Cavan Peace III

“I felt the workshop provided valuable insights and practical tools for creating collaborative work teams.”

“Everyone should have the opportunity to participate in something similar, regardless of whether or not your core activity is facilitation. We all participate in meetings of some kind and this understanding leads to a much more effective, inclusive way of doing our jobs.”

“I learned new skills and gained confidence in my own ability to effect change. And I enjoyed the course and left feeling re-energized.”
