Why Use Facilitators?
Using facilitators to achieve desired outcomes saves organizations and work teams considerable time and money.
Whenever two or more people get together to discuss a situation, weigh options, make decisions about what actions are necessary, etc., there are bound to be differences of opinion that can disrupt team relationships and dynamics—not to mention the adverse effect on the accomplishment of the organizational agenda.
Effective facilitation enables people to hear the viewpoints of others, to shift from a fixed mindset, and work through issues that may be blocking communication and/or effective action.
Why Our Integral Facilitation?
The difference in the way we facilitate is by leveraging and applying the power of the Integral Model such that all perspectives are considered, including the different needs and motivations of the individuals involved to secure commitment and ensure success. Our Approach includes:
- A clear scope, through agreeing, planning and achieving the desired objectives
- Valuing and managing the priorities and feelings of individual participants as well as skilfully confronting where necessary
- Encouraging ‘real’ team development and leader commitment
- Using a structured approach, with clearly defined accountabilities
Within our approach, we recognize that different opinions or perspectives and debate are healthy and should be encouraged. But instead of getting caught up in frustrating and time-consuming meanderings, we facilitate in a way that leads people to feel ‘heard’ and valued and affords the right environment and opportunity to make a meaningful contribution towards accomplishing intended results.
We have helped clients arrive at timely and effective outcomes in the following areas:
- Strategic Planning
- Process Improvement
