Our group facilitators are highly trained professionals with many years of experience. They are independent business owners working together, as needed, to support their client needs.
Facilitators are process experts around issues involving human dynamics and group process. They construct work processes that are focused to achieve a stated purpose using a variety of tools and techniques (often referred to as methods) while engaging participants in ways that help deliver desired outcomes while utilizing the knowledge and energy of the group to generate success.
Professional facilitators often start out as general facilitators; simply helping small groups through the group process while they solve a problem, plan a new product, execute a strategy, or simply hold a meeting. As they gain experience and training they tend to specialize in one or two areas related to the industry of their profession. Just a few of the facilitation specialties include strategic planning, partnering, team building, business processes, lean/six sigma, and large group events.
The Facilitation Center provides Professional and Certified Group Facilitators, all highly trained, with a broad level of experience working at various organizational levels and in different industry sectors.
Most facilitators are drawn to this profession from experiences they have at work. At first they seek out training so they can be more effective in their own meetings. Eventually, they choose to transition their work to become full-time or professional facilitators because they find that they are more satisfied with their contribution, in their role as a facilitator.
