Facilitation is the art of leadership
in group communication.
Facilitation is a skill used for a wide range of purposes, from tightly focused meetings with time constraints, to workshops covering several days.
The goals will empower teams to identify their workplace issues, develop their own strategies and achieve their goals.
Individuals in conflict will be enabled to talk frankly to each other in a safe context to achieve early resolution of issues.
Why might you need an external facilitator?
Facilitated meetings may be especially useful when clients or patients are angry because they have not received the outcome they were seeking and hoping for.
The skill of an external facilitator can provide a safe context in which issues are clearly expressed, people feel listened to, and the matter is resolved without progression to costly and time and energy consuming adversarial processes which do not serve the interests of either party.
