What is Facilitation?

Facilitation is the process of helping groups to explore issues, draw conclusions and make decisions, in a structured and objective way.

In that respect, it is a science. But it is also an art, because a good facilitator will help to interpret events, interactions and outcomes. A good facilitator will adapt the process and help group members decide to take action and follow through.

A well facilitated event is creative.   Taking a complex set of problems and/or issues, a solution is first conceived and then developed into an action plan that people buy into and execute with enthusiasm.

The best events are followed up and the action plan is regularly reviewed and reappraised in the light of events, and in this way, objectives are met.

What Is It Not?

It is not consultancy !   If you want us to provide the answer, you don't need a facilitator, you need a consultant.   We help you to discover the answer – you know your business, its people, problems and possibilities : we know how to get this from you and shape it into an achievable result.
