Facilitation Skills

Facilitation is different than teaching or doing. Facilitating is about enabling a group to achieve results through your process design and facilitating efforts. Create an environment that allows others to contribute to an important objective, benefiting themselves or the greater good.

What you gain:

  • A true understanding of what it means to facilitate.
  • Specific skills to balance the role of “leader” and the role of “enabler.”
  • Learning to manage the natural tensions of a group.
  • Tools and strategies for planning your facilitation.

What the organization gains:

  • Members of your staff you can trust to represent your organization well in community efforts.
  • Results based on better input and diversity of the people participating.
  • An internal resource to develop and facilitate meetings or initiatives.
