Engaging People, Empowering Teams and Exceeding Goals by conceptualizing & executing well-designed facilitation processes
Why Facilitation Skills?
The role of the Team Leader has undergone a tremendous change in the last few years. On one hand is the growing importance of understanding organisation’s goals and being aligned with it. On the other is the increasing importance of being the driver of culture and a person who enables common thinking and commitment / ownership across the organization especially when changes happen.
To do this, the Team Leader needs to be able to influence co-workers across levels in the organization and be able to intervene appropriately in various situations to enable shared commitment and alignment to a common goal / purpose. The outcome of doing this is high performance of the organization and enhanced engagement of people.
The skill to be able to get collective engagement and alignment is what Facilitation is all about. Being facilitative is a different way of interacting with co-workers and viewing a task. According to Webster’s dictionary, “Facilitate”, from the root word “facile”, is to “make easy or easier”. It means functioning with a mindset of serving others, allowing the group and the situation to “be in control”. As a team leader, this emphasis on people skills is powerful. Instead of having to “know”, you need to build the capacity for more people to “be in the know”.

Also, those who believe that they would be able to put into practice the learning post a workshop. Accordingly, the program would be suitable for the following:
