The Links and Differences between Facilitation, Training and Consulting

Trainers are in charge of both a process and the content. They have particular and specific learning objectives they must deliver on and bring content expertise to the table.

Facilitators are in charge of a process. They support a group in using the information and knowledge they possess to achieve a specific objective- but they are not responsible of the substance that the group will deliver (a decision, a plan, etc).
