Online Facilitation is the process of designing and running an effective and successful online group meeting. It involves a facilitator helping a group engage around a common goal. The facilitator will employ techniques to improve the flow of information between multiple parties within a group in order to reach a pre-determined objective. Objectives may include building or restoring relationships, making a decision, solving a problem, or exchanging ideas and information. The facilitator is unbiased with respect to the task and will serve all participants equally; has no authority or stake in the substance of the outcome or decision; and is committed to managing a process that is inclusive, fair and respectful for all.
Groups using consensus decision-making, a process that involves all members of the group reaching an agreement that is acceptable to everyone, requires the assistance of a trained Agreement-Making Facilitator. Facilitators trained in consensus agreement-making can help guide your group through the collaborative process toward achieving group success.
Tackling today’s complex problems is a monumental challenge and requires addressing a multitude of related problems, which makes it even more difficult. This process is further exacerbated when a group is convened to determine the best possible solution. Collectively analyzing and defining a problem, and generating and choosing the best solution requires expert facilitation skills. Problem-Solving Facilitators can help your team navigate the collaborative problem-solving process and discover the best possible solution.
Restorative Practice provide opportunities for individuals harmed by a wrongdoing to share their feelings with the offender, resolve problems, and restore relationships. Guided by a Restorative Conference Facilitator, victims play an active role in addressing the wrongdoing committed by the offender in order to make things right.
To stay competitive in today’s rapidly changing global economy, teams must work productively and effectively communicate. Success demands building common ground and understanding.
