As a team or group leader, a skilled facilitator can make you a lot more effective. A facilitator is someone you can trust to create an appropriate, solid, workable team process designed to help you address your priorities and deal with vital issues well. And as we know, that can be extremely challenging, especially under particularly complex, demanding corporate circumstances.
As skilled facilitators it’s our job to keep your team on track so you can direct your focus in the right way, navigating tough decisions and dealing with pressing organisational issues smoothly. Once you know an event is being well led by a professional, you feel far more confident and relaxed.
Our facilitation services create a significant shift in the dynamics of any group. Introducing creative ideas, different ways of interacting and new thinking disciplines influences how a team works, catalysing positive change and helping the team embed fresh, exciting and highly productive new ways of working.
A facilitator has an exclusive focus. They’re there to create the exact right conditions and process for a team to talk about what needs to be talked about, combine their thinking power and resolve issues. It’s all about making group decisions work properly and driving optimum team performance.
Team coaching uses a broad range of facilitation skills and techniques. Group facilitation does not have the same primary emphasis on one-to-one coaching, but always involves asking powerful coaching questions via a range of different coaching techniques.
While we can provide group facilitation as a one off event or structured over time in a series of linked sessions, team coaching always involves some one-on-one coaching meetings plus group sessions and usually takes place over a series of months.
At the start of an intervention, our consultants first pin down whether team coaching or group facilitation will suit your group best at this stage in its development. We work with a range difference types of teams at every phase of their life cycle.
