Facilitation as a Core Leadership Competency
Today’s leaders must manage constant change, solve urgent problems, and deal with scores of other issues at the same time. That makes facilitation one of today’s most critical leadership skills. Facilitation skills are the “process” skills we use to guide and direct key parts of our organizing work with groups of people. Whether it’s a meeting (big or small) or a training session, someone has to shape and guide the process of working together so that you build consensus, engage your staff, and accomplish your goals. While a group of people might set the agenda and figure out the goals, one person needs to concentrate on how you are going to move through your agenda and meet those goals effectively. We call this person a “facilitator.”
