What is facilitation?

Facilitation is an organized way of running creative processes, meetings or workshops.

Its goal is to use time more efficiently, help lead the group during the process, solve conflicts or settle disagreements and work out specific solutions.

Who is a facilitator?

Facilitator designs a process, guides a group and ensures that it works effectively.

Facilitator is not a trainer. He does not share his / her knowledge. He / she does not have to be an expert in the field.

On the contrary, it is better if he is not as it allows him / her to look at a challenge more objectively.

When is it worth it to utilize facilitation?

Support and competencies of a facilitator may prove useful if you organize e.g. a brainstorming session or a strategic meeting.

In such situations, it is difficult to be involved in the creative process, and at the same time lead the team and ensure that the process runs smoothly and accordingly to the plan and guidelines.

For that reason, it is worth to count on facilitation and find support from an external entity which is not influenced by internal personal relations or possible conflicts.

Owing to that, facilitator focuses on the task and influences others toward the achievement of established goals.
