Facilitation saves you time, money or hassle. It is all about getting a better result that has a higher probability of taking your business plan to the next level!
Early involvement of a neutral facilitator helps to accelerate group and organisational outcomes
A neutral context and industry aware facilitator accelerates planning by:
Helping to accelerate collaborative outcomes and provide a forum for constructively resolving conflicts and clarifying issues (creating a safe, non-threatening environment for open discussion)
Focussing on the outcomes when management, account leaders or SME’s proximity to the subject matter makes it difficult to be objective and remain open to whitespace opportunities and ideas; Builds innovation and problem-solving skills
Helping the group accomplish more in less time, eliminating the need for multiple meetings, and generating forward momentum on the issues under discussion
Providing third-party objective leadership/consulting to help clearly define issues, break down complex issues and work towards outcomes without bias
Managing the ideation, planning and meeting process, focus on key issues & time
Encouraging people to think and act for the overall benefit of the organisation
Driving quality – higher-quality decisions normally result. Stronger action plans that have buy-in across the business
Overcoming negative attitudes, low morale, low involvement. Withholding of information is less likely because everyone is involved in a joint process
Cultivating a commitment and accountability of the group to follow-up on the action plan – Increased participation within the group increases productivity.
Helping to “visualise” what can be in the future by creating a unified vision – Everyone involved has a chance to contribute and feels they are co-creators and an integral part of the account planning.
