9 Steps To Master Facilitation Skills
Part 1 of my seven part training series on Foundational Scrum Master skills
👋 Hello, I’m Vibhor, and welcome to the 🔒 subscriber-only edition 🔒 of my weekly Training Series powered by Winning Strategy. Every week, I answer one reader question about Agile Products, Role-based Skills, and anything else that you need answered about your Career Growth. You can send me your questions here.

Let’s get started.
Now that back-to-school is out of the way, I'm taking things up a notch.
Over the next 2+ months, I am going to share a multi-post in-depth series on skills necessary to become a Foundational Scrum Master.
The series is based on the LinkedIn post I published a couple of weeks ago called 3 Levels of Expertise in Scrum Masters — and brings me one step closer to my goal of giving every aspiring Scrum Master a handy guide to develop “real professional skills” required to become a Foundational Scrum Master.
Even if you’re not aspiring to be a Scrum Master, you’ll find inspiration, new ideas and perspectives to look at these skills from a different angle.
Here’s what’s in store:
Part 1: 9 Steps to master facilitation skills ←Current post
Part 5: Backlog management skills
Part 7: Skills to manage stakeholders
You will find stories and lessons never shared in generic certification courses — a ton of tactical and actionable advice you can use to fill your pool of skills.
I am excited to hear what you think and evolve this work together.
Let’s start with Part 1: 9 Steps to master facilitation skills.
