“Facilitation is the provision of opportunities, resources, encouragement, and support for the group to achieve its aim, and to do this through enabling the group to take control and responsibility for the way it proceeds.” — Trevor Bentley
“Facilitation is leading from the back of the room. The job of the facilitator is to hold the space for the meeting to be successful.” — M. K. Key
Leaders are held to a high standard when it comes to personal integrity. To gauge integrity, followers read consistency of word and deed, with the actions speaking louder than the words. This applies to the keeping of promises, as well.
Some leaders get caught in promises that they can’t keep – but fail to acknowledge this openly. The social contract needs a tune up. What is required is to rework the agreement – “I intended to do this, but for these reasons, I cannot. Here is what I can do …” And thus the preservation of integrity.
Key Associates, LLC offers a two-day experiential course in facilitation. See The Art of Facilitation.
