Arlene Quinn uses her facilitation experience with small and large groups to assist the group to focus and use a process to keep on track. A scope of facilitation template is developed to meet the organisational and group needs, accounting for stakeholder views. Facilitation is used primarily to work on one or more of the following areas.
- Renewal deals with the people side of transformation and with the spirit of the company
- Reframing is the shifting of the conception of what it can achieve
- Revitalise is about igniting growth to challenge and is frequently a more protracted approach
- Restructure is when the primary consideration is to do more with less and often around cultural difficulties
Want to learn how to facilitate better?
Our 2 day program provides participants with exposure on these 4 key areas of facilitation:
- Practicalities are the acquisition of facilitative processes (a skill) and the competent practice of that skill for any facilitative event, e.g. brain storming.
- Grasping the concepts being explored by the group through the selected processes is the intellectual, verbal – conceptual level of facilitating, e.g. exploring language used by the group.
- Facilitators have to be imaginative; intuitively grasping the form and process of the event. The shape, sequence, rhythm, movement and sounds of the processes, e.g. sensing the group energy for certain processes, sensing human intention.
- Facilitation is truly experiential learning for the group. There is a state of being manifested; by being there, face to face with the participants, at the event, having an experience, e.g. state of feeling a resonance with the group; who you are being as a facilitator.
