“Facilitation reveals the buried treasure every one brings to the session.”

Facilitation helps groups to be more focus in their purpose, direction and decision making as they work interactively to achieve results. Tools and processes employ take into account their diversity, education, interests and capabilities. It results in increased productivity, group dynamics and communication.

Facilitators functions as guides and enablers. They are experienced in planning agendas, creating trust in a safe environment, encouraging participation and guiding the groups to attain their purposeful outcome.

Benefits of Facilitation:

  • Increased productivity
  • Group results are more powerful than the sum of individual efforts
  • Develop problem-solving and decision-making skills
  • Increase opportunities for participants to contribute
  • Clarity and more purposeful progress towards a goal

Facilitation is not:

  • Training
  • Coaching or Mentoring
  • Group therapy
  • Meeting Skills

An experienced facilitator has to deal with uncertainty and be able to guide participants in reaching the objective of the session. He needs to be empathic with the participants and concurrently mobilize their energy to tackle difficult issues.  Remaining neutral and collected in times of disagreement and confusion is a valued skill.
Michael Lum is a member of International Association of Facilitators (IAF).
Facilitation services are available on request.
