How often does management of a company set goals for their organization and then fail to meet them? Is resistance to change a common problem? Why? Do these problems share commonalities with disputes in general?
Facilitation helps groups within a company or across companies achieve the goals established by senior management.
The facilitator is:
- A person who enables groups and organizations to work more effectively; to collaborate and achieve synergy.
- An impartial 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 work.
- A person who helps the parties tasked with achieving a goal understand the source(s) of resistance, break down barriers between groups and improve communications.
Facilitation skills are similar to those of mediation but applied differently.
