Gems of Facilitation

Gems of Facilitation

Some Gems I picked up during a very interesting and extremely effective session on Using Facilitation as a tool in the corporate world by Mr Kaviarasu and his team from Asian Paints. These are not necessarily what Kavi or his team said. It includes what I interpreted, how I think I can apply and what I picked up from our small / large group interactions.

  • A facilitator profits from the wisdom of the group.
  • People need to be seen as ‘complete people’. With their backgrounds and all of everything that they bring to the table. When we reduce them to their ‘roles’ they stand diminished.
  • While using facilitation as a tool or process, we must remember and accept that we are imperfect.
  • People are hired for knowledge and paid for behaviour.
  • It is not the process or the method that is important as long as anything we do that relates to the ‘Outcome.’
  • A facilitator must detach himself from tools and transfer the power to the group and focus on outcomes.
  • Share stories of good / bad performance. Let words / sentences stretch beyond language and focus on the ‘experience.’ Let the employees get the real ‘meaning.’ 
  • Its great if a group after a review meeting feel energised for what is going to happen rather than deflated for what could not be done.
  • Create ‘shared settings’ by replacing collective wisdom of the group to replace the mail box, powerpoint slides or theoretical, management jargon.
  • A meeting must culminate into an informed, actionable, practical ‘Action Plan.’
