 Testimonials from our AVARAP facilitators    

 

 

Robert Hidoux became AVARAP facilitator in 2009 and has already run 5 groups : "Facilitating an AVARAP group represents a strong engagement in time and energy, but not only. It is a fun and unimaginable rich experience! For me being an AVARAP Facilitator means guiding a group towards the achievement of the career project of each participant.

A project which is in line with their values and ambitions. But this is not all! Furthermore, thanks to the facilitation of the weekly workshops, my management style has also greatly benefited from this experience. Indeed, in my everyday worklife I now manage my teams and projets in a different way. The training I have received to become AVARAP facilitator has greatly improved my soft skills within my current company: I organise my work more efficiently and facilitating the different groups has showed me the power of group dynamics.

I developed greater communication skills and empathy, which allows me to bring out the best of my team members. Being an AVARAP facilitator also allows me to be aware of the employment market and to expand my network "

 

                          

 

 

 

 

                     

Olivier Leroy AVARAP facilitator since March 2008 and run 3 groups: "my role as AVARAP facilitator is first of all a pleasure; it is a human adventure - although the phrase lacks originality - in which the values ​​of attentiveness, trust, solidarity find all their meaning. The AVARAP facilitator must gurarantee the application of these values, which are rare in companies nowadays.

It is the pleasure of observing the professional and personal guidance in action. From a technical perspective, facilitating an AVARAP group is an opportunity to:


- Discover and implement a strong and efficient methodology;


- Improve your communication skills (giving feedback, delivering a message, asking for explainations, etc..) with respect, and learning to balance relational and emotional dimensions;


- Develop your facilitation skills to better serve the career project of each group member;


- Enrich your management skills through active listening, emulation, confrontation: become a manager-people development, who helps the individual to find his own resources.

A great experience overall, rewarding, engaging and fulfilling"
