Discover your potential as a facilitator through comprehensive training offered by the DAF Digital Transformation Office.
We’re proud to introduce the DAF Digital Facilitators Academy. This pioneering program includes interactive workshops, practical exercises, and one-on-one coaching designed to equip Airmen and Guardians with the critical virtual facilitation skills necessary to meet the challenges of the digital era. Elevate your leadership skills by becoming an influential and impactful facilitator.
PRIORITIZING A DIGITAL-FIRST CULTURE
The Digital Transformation Office (DTO) is the first organization to lead a unified digital transformation across the Department of the Air Force by empowering a digital-first workforce. Digital collaboration is a crucial component for removing roadblocks and accelerating change. Therefore, the Department of the Air Force is committed to instilling a digital-first culture to encourage real-time collaboration at speed. The Digital Facilitators Academy equips participants with the digital skills necessary to drive progress and eliminate unnecessary silos.
Poorly managed meetings waste a significant amount of time and money across all sectors. New research shows that 70% of meetings keep employees from doing productive work. With the rise of virtual meetings and workshops, mastering the art of guiding successful online collaboration is essential. The Digital Facilitators Academy helps build a culture of facilitation within the DAF, boosting teamwork while achieving results.
EMPOWERING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS
The series recently kicked off with the first cohort of PALACE Acquire (PAQ) and Premier College Intern Program (PCIPS) in Part One: Facilitation 101. During the 2-hour session, participants were introduced to the art of digital facilitation and the barriers that often hinder meaningful progress. Throughout the workshop, collaborative breakout sessions allowed attendees to experience, in real-time, how to engage and influence an audience while thwarting unnecessary derailment and passive participation.
“Following the pandemic, these skills are even more important.”
“This was the most interactive and useful training workshop I’ve ever attended.”
“I appreciated the small group and the structure of the class.”
“This session really helped me focus.”
“Loved hearing all the actionable tips and tricks.”
