Meta-skills and meta-routines for facilitator
A meta-skill is a high order skill that allows you to engage with functional expertise more effectively. Those are connected to e.g. self-awareness and self-regulation. In this chapter Jari Ylitalo discussed what are the meta-skills that a good facilitator needs. Facilitating (and leadership) are skills that can be developed and steered, and this chapter helps you understand what are the skills behind a succesfull facilitator.

1. Introduction to facilitator’s meta-skills
Those are connected to e.g. self-awareness and self-regulation. In this chapter Jari Ylitalo discussed what are the meta-skills that a facilitator needs and how do they relate to self-awareness and self-regulation.
2. Intrapersonal meta-skills for facilitators
After an introduction to the topic the second video discusses the meta-skills focusing on intrapersonal skills, occurring within the self.
3. Interpersonal meta-skills for facilitators
The third chapter expands to interpersonal and social skills – that are definitely just as important as intrapersonal skills to a facilitator.
4. Meta-routines for facilitators
After covering the meta-skills, meta-routines are discussed. Meta-routines are routines, practises and habits that help us to continuously improve ourselves. In the last video, the chapter is summarized by sharing experiences on how you can continuously be better at meta-skills, and how that might not be as straight-forward to develop as some more concrete skills.
