Facilitative Leadership as opposed to the old fashioned authoritative leadership of “It’s my way, or the high way approach”, seems to be the secret formula to unleash group wisdom. Leaders need to move beyond personal excellence and unlock the knowledge and expertise of a group by gaining facilitation skills. Facilitative leadership style is essential to motivate team members towards a common purpose, objective or goal. Facilitation methods can be applied across the entire gamut of the role of a leader – crafting a vision, building alignment and championing execution.
Chief Executive Facilitator (CEF) is a highly recommended facilitation skills program that enables the participants to design, develop and facilitate group interactions at workplace. These tools, techniques and skills can be applied to team meetings, business planning workshops, project reviews, client meetings, strategy meets, training sessions and just about any group interaction involving 3 or more people. The program provides the participants a safe learning environment to practice facilitation in small groups with guided reflection & feedback.
A facilitator is someone who formulates and delivers structure to make group processes effective. This is achieved by cultivating a sense of shared responsibility and active participation. Facilitators are experts in resolving conflicts and in making groups find their own motivation. Facilitators enable groups to reach informed consensus and decisions with relative ease in a time bound manner. They help make personal commitment a norm.
