Being a professional facilitator means being in front of the group quite often. However, in our heads, the spotlight is not on us – it is always on the group. Our work is not about what we want to say. It is about what the group goal is and how we are supporting them in reaching it. We strongly believe that our best contribution is enabling each and every participant to contribute her or his questions, doubts, information, knowledge and experience in the given timeframe and to help the group to make use of it in the most meaningful way for their cause. The art of facilitation is designing the proper process to make it happen, choosing the tools that will bring the inspiration, energy and flow into the group work and standing in the front with a „midwife-attitude“– supporting but not doing their job.
We facilitate management workshops, network conferences, team development sessions, ideation sessions … different group encounters in different sectors, and each one is a unique story. Not because we are aiming for it but because each client, group or topic makes it different and unique. We might use the same methods, but it will not be the same workshop. Because the content is not provided by the method but by the participating people.
We aim to support these unique contributions, insights and results. We are doing so by being very attentive to listen to what the client’s needs are, using our knowledge and experience to propose the process that might be the best choice to get the best possible results, and being fully present and open to adjusting once when the group starts to work together.
