What is Group Facilitation?
Who hires a facilitator?
What can you expect?
Group facilitation uses a trained (neutral) facilitator to increase group effectiveness by improving its process and structure for decision-making and problem-solving. Typically used in important meetings, restructuring, mergers, and managing internal changes.
Organizations who rely on groups to coordinate work, produce quality products and services, and who are naturally diverse. Groups rely on meetings and communication to make decisions, solve problems and be efficient but often find themselves in long frustrating meetings with personality clashes and costly impasse.
You can expect to assess the process for decision-making and identifying problems, identify group member conflict and communication styles, how to deal with disagreement and collectively increase commitment and efficiency to group work.
