Every group or team, no matter how effective, occasionally benefits from a neutral facilitator to guide the team or group toward its outcomes. Whether the issues are establishing a clear vision, making a tough decision, setting priorities, or dealing with discord and conflict, most teams benefit from an outsider who can objectively guide the group toward its goals.
- Problem solving or decision making within the group
- Bring together diverse stakeholders to identify areas of common ground around issues, challenges, opportunities, and strategies for action
- Identifying barriers to the team’s success — and developing action plans to address these
- Defining a shared vision for the group
- Developing priorities and goals to move the group forward
- Constructively engaging disruptive team members by exploring the underlying causes and constructing pathways toward reconciliation
- The need to develop working agreements and personal action plans to facilitate team effectiveness.
