IPEX Facilitator








IPEx, the corporate training and organizational development department of Davenport University hire facilitators to lead sessions in a variety of topics to corporate clients and the general public. IPEx is looking for subject matter experts in the areas of leadership, management, project management, finance, and other business focused topics.


In a corporate training setting, collaboration and consensus are essential ways of working. Simple in concept but not so easy to achieve, creating an environment where groups can be productive and effective in achieving their goals is a facilitator's primary role. Facilitate means “to make easy.” As a facilitator, your job is to make the training easier for the participants. Your main task is to help the team or group increase its effectiveness by improving its processes. A facilitator manages the method of the training. Facilitators are concerned with how decisions are made instead of what decisions are reached.
