We have a proven expertise in guiding your managers and leaders to explore issues in your organisation, helping them move towards new ideas and solutions that can be quickly implemented.
Use our structured facilitation skills to help deliver and generate insights, make the most of your existing potential, and to deliver impact in your organisation. What do we mean by structured facilitation? One example of our approach can be summed up in the following steps:
- Start by finding our which are the right questions to ask about the business.
- Draw the relevant concepts, insights and resources together to answer those questions most crucial to taking the business forward.
- Bring managers together to answer the chosen questions. Give them time to reflect so they can explore the concepts and insights that will become a springboard for action.
- Commit to action, document it, then provide follow-up activities and review of progress.
Effective facilitation typically combines three elements:
- Content - This would be relevant to the questions being addressed and the desired outcomes, and tailored to the needs of the specific participants.
- Process - Effective facilitation requires the use of a clear, relevant process. There will be many variables in any workshop, including different topics, desired outcomes, length of session or the background participants. So effective workshops require the right facilitation process for each session.
- Process skills - Using the right process for differing content or delegates is essential but this alone is not enough. Effective workshops also require good process skills. These are the facilitation techniques which will keep the workshop focused, lively, relevant and effective. They will help realise the full potential of participants, bringing the best out of your managers and leaders
