Have you ever felt like your team is on the brink of a breakthrough, but you’re just missing that final piece to make it all come together? You’re not alone. Many groups find themselves in a similar spot, and that’s where our facilitation services team comes into play. Guided by our Rockefeller Ethic, which inspires all of the tactics our team employs, facilitation is the secret sauce that can take your team’s performance from good to great.
Collaborative Problem Solving + Respectful Dialogue + Diversity of Opinion = Transformational ChangeThe Rockefeller Ethic
Here are five ways our facilitation services can help bring about transformational change in your team:
1. Defines Goals and Objectives
Facilitators can help your team define clear, achievable goals. We’ll guide your team through a process of identifying what you want to achieve and how to get there by setting clear agendas, establishing ground rules, and managing time — all of which can be game-changers for a team’s productivity and success.
2. Improves Communication
Effective communication is at the heart of facilitation. Our team can help create an environment where everyone is invited to participate and feels comfortable sharing their ideas or concerns. We can also teach your team effective communication strategies that you can continue to use long after you leave the room.
3. Resolves Conflicts
Difficult situations often demand difficult conversations. Organizations frequently struggle to make those conversations productive, if not outright avoiding them entirely in the hope that the problem will go away. Conflict is normal and can arise in any group, but it doesn’t have to derail your progress. Facilitators, as the neutral party in the room, are skilled at managing conflicts in a way that respects all viewpoints and finds a resolution that everyone can agree on.
4. Encourages Participation
Every team member brings unique insights and ideas to the table. After all, the more diverse viewpoints you can gather, the more comprehensive your solutions will become. Our team uses unique, structured dialogues that invite everyone to speak at the same level, regardless of their position on the team. Plus, facilitations often utilize break-out groups, which can create a more intimate setting for participants to share their thoughts.
5. Keeps the Group Focused
It’s easy for meetings to go off track, but facilitators can help keep everyone focused on the task at hand. We guide the discussion, keep your group on schedule, and make sure that every minute of your time with us is scheduled carefully and productively. We want you to be able to leave the Institute with a clear understanding of how you came to us, the problems you described, the ideas you proposed, where you ended up at the end of the day, and how you can take everything to the finish line to achieve the desired goal. That’s the transformational change we see for you.
