The focus in a basic facilitation is tactical - to arrive at the goal of the session. But the approach is to optimize engagement, buy-in, ideation, solutioning and commitment in the process.
Some examples of the challenges groups address best with facilitation include:
- Clarify roles and expectations
- Agree on a vision and core values
- Create an approach and path for an organization change
- Build a transformation program approach
- Design agility or lean principles into the organization
Basic Facilitation is a transformative experience with the result of rapid advancement of the groups understanding and commitment.
Advanced Facilitation adds the experiential learning practices of how to collaborate well into the facilitation, thereby using the experience to build on-going capabilities and shift the current constraints of norms, values and assumptions of the group as they address the topic at hand.
