Ingrid Benz defined a facilitator as “One who contributes structure and process to interactions so groups are able to function effectively and make high-quality decisions. A helper and enabler whose goal is to support others as they achieve exceptional performance.” Ensuring exceptional performance is precisely the outcome that IAG facilitators will help you and your team reach. Whether in an information session, a decision-making meeting, a conflict resolution discussion, an action planning session or any other like situations the skills and neutrality of a trained facilitator position your team to achieve greater results. Specifically, the use of a neutral facilitator empowers all relevant stakeholders to engage fully, leaving no one to juggle facilitation with participation. Similarly, as a neutral party, a skilled facilitator provides the structures and processes necessary to ensure all voices are heard empowering the group to make well informed decisions and/or come to thoroughly considered conclusions.
Using research-based strategies, IAG facilitators support teams in moving toward consensus and collaborative decisions. They are able to increase shared understanding and generate collective momentum that helps your team achieve its goals.
