Facilitating Work Teams
Facilitating a work team is similar to moderating a focus group with a few differences.
- The participants have a vested interest to work together towards a common goal.
- Companies bring in a trained facilitator like Bruce to help them generate breakthroughs in areas like process improvement, strategic planning, or brainstorming new ideas.
- Via an agenda with specific steps and exercises, a facilitator brings structure and process to a meeting to help the team arrive at a result that is created, understood, and accepted by all participants.
- A good facilitator does not solve the team’s problems – he leads them to solve their problems and come to a consensus, the definition being: “I can live with those decisions, and support them.”
Bruce completed training in “The Effective Facilitator” at the Leadership Strategies Institute in March, 2017.
