Facilitation enables groups to function effectively, creating positive outcomes and experiences that would be difficult to achieve without outside help. Participants bring great knowledge and experience into sessions, but they also bring a lot of baggage with them: personal, political, professional and emotional. Effective facilitation helps them set aside the baggage, apply their insights and produce great outcomes. Equally importantly, effective facilitation creates a positive experience that promotes participants’ commitment to group outcomes and improves the group’s on-going ability to work together.
