Good facilitation helps a group achieve your purpose by hearing each other, coming to understandings, pooling your wisdom and making wise decisions. The facilitator focuses on both purpose and process. The purpose is what the group has agreed to discuss or make a decision around.
Conflict is a natural part of working in a team. While conflict may at first seem destructive and may not feel very comfortable, it can be creative.
The facilitator’s job is to support everyone to do their best thinking. They create an environment where everyone is encouraged to participate, understand one another’s point of view and share responsibility.
Facilitation skills are the abilities you use to provide opportunities and resources to a group of people that enable them to make progress and succeed. Some examples include being prepared, setting guidelines, being flexible, active listening and managing time.
Why is Facilitation Important? Facilitation is important because meetings of large groups of people can be very hard to organize as well as to control when they are in progress. First of all, a facilitator can help members of a group get to know each other and learn to cooperate.
Facilitators often teach courses that require reflection and application of information to a job, such as communications, leadership, problem-solving, and more.
