Facilitation skills are essential for anyone seeking to guide a group of people through a process of learning or change in a way that encourages all members of the group to participate. Each person has a unique viewpoint and valuable knowledge to share. Without their contribution, the group’s ability to understand or respond to a situation is reduced. The facilitator’s role is to draw out knowledge and ideas from different members of a group. They can help them learn from each other and think and act together. Facilitation is about empowering others. It involves letting go of control over the outcome of a process and giving that responsibility to the group.
Facilitation allows everyone to have an input in a safe environment and ensures involvement by staff in decisions. This in turn motivates staff by promoting greater ownership of organisational decisions
The British Academy for Training and Development offers a course of Facilitation skills which help any organization make better decisions. This course will give participants an understanding of what facilitation is all about, as well as some tools that they can use to facilitate small meetings. A strong understating of how a facilitator can command a room and dictate the pace of a meeting will have your participants on the road to becoming great facilitators themselves.
