IAF Core Competencies framework was developed over several years by the IAF with the support of its members and facilitators from all over the world. The competencies form the basic set of skills, knowledge, and behaviours that facilitators must have in order to be successful facilitating in a wide variety of environments.
As a resource, the framework consists of six areas that guide excellence in facilitation. These include:
Creating Collaborative Client Relationships
Planning Appropriate Group Processes
Creating and Sustaining a Participatory Environment
Guiding the Group to Appropriate and Useful Outcomes
