  • Facilitation Versus Presentation

    2. 2. FACILITATION <ul><li>Definition - To make things easier, to smooth the progress of and to assist in making things happen. </li></ul><ul><li>Facilitation is not about forcibly moving things forward. </li></ul><ul><li>Facilitation is about allowing and creating an environment where things can move forward. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Presentation or Facilitation?
    4. 4. Good facilitators see and hear not only the obvious, but are tuned in to what else might be going on that isn't quite so apparent. They are skilled in interpreting the difficulties, resolving conflict, cutting through time wasting and diversionary tactics, and develop new practices that will work.
    5. 5. Presentation Facilitation
    6. 6. <ul><li>Whenever groups of people get together, two things are usually true: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Everyone sees the world differently, no matter how similar their points of view may be. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Everyone thinks their view is the right one. </li></ul></ul>
    7. 7. <ul><li>What is the outcome of facilitation ? </li></ul><ul><li>When there is a spirit of cooperation and a willingness to arrive at a mutually agreed outcome, disparate points of view can work together, and people go away satisfied that their point of view has been taken into consideration and utilized in some way. </li></ul>
    8. 8. <ul><li>Sometimes a facilitator acts as a translator. </li></ul><ul><li>Not only reflecting back what they've heard, but also interpreting it in a way that other people can understand. </li></ul><ul><li>A good facilitator gets practiced in understanding the differing nuances, jargon and meanings in what various people are saying and being able to explain that difference to others. </li></ul><ul><li>A useful phrase is &quot;So what you're saying is….&quot; </li></ul>

    11. 11. Start HERE HOW it’s done: The model forms a wheel. You start at the Bottom (the trust building phase) You start with the question that brings the group together, and ask them, “ So what’s the Solution?” The Facilitator must listen carefully and capture EVERYTHING.
