What is Facilitation?

Group facilitation is aimed to enable groups and organizations to work more effectively; to collaborate and achieve synergy. The facilitator is a content neutral party who by not taking sides or expressing or advocating a point of view during the meeting, can advocate for fair, open, and inclusive procedures to accomplish the group’s goal.

  • Increased participation within the group increases productivity.
  • The efforts of groups usually produce better results than individual efforts.
  • People are encouraged to think and act for the overall benefit of the group.
  • Innovation and problem-solving skills are built.
