What is facilitation and what does a facilitator provide?
“Facilitation” means to enable, to make easy.
A facilitator is a neutral party who designs a fair, inclusive and open process to balance participation and improve productivity while creating a safe environment in which all group members can fully participate. Facilitation provides support so all voices are heard and understood and is particularly helpful when dealing with controversial issues or matters involving multi-party decision making. The role of a facilitator is to help minimize wasted effort and dysfunctional group dynamics. A neutral facilitator enables groups and organizations to work more effectively, to collaborate and achieve synergy.
Facilitation of Constructive Dialogue is to purposefully design and conduct multi-party, stakeholder or public meetings/sessions to achieve your objectives and accomplish your desired outcomes. Facilitation removes the discomfort, obstacles, dysfunctional behavior and overall heartburn commonly associated with preparing and conducting difficult meetings, information sharing for controversial projects/plans, large public forums, opinionated committee or work group meetings and stakeholder involvement roundtables. Facilitation also frees you to become an active participant without the planning or time management worries.
