Collective Intelligence Facilitation
What is facilitation?
Facilitation is about motivating and guiding teams towards the development of a meaning-filled collective project.
Facilitation is a process of meeting to support a team in their search for concrete solutions. It uses tools and interactive approaches that promote collective intelligence and commitment.
The role of the professional facilitator will evolve throughout the collective intelligence facilitation process. Upstream, he/she is the architect of the meeting design. Once in action, he/she becomes the pilot responsible for the process that encourages the group’s autonomy in establishing and implementing solutions. Finally, at times when the group is struggling to find its way, he or she adopts a guiding role.
The collective intelligence facilitator is therefore constantly listening to the needs of individuals and of the group. He or she shows agility and adaptability to ensure that the objectives are achieved.
In short, facilitating is about enabling and engaging each member of the team in the development of sustainable solutions.
When is facilitation used?
As each team is unique, the reasons can be varied but here are some good reasons :
- to decide together
- to remobilize following an organisational change,
- to determine new strategies,
- to create and implement concrete and sustainable actions,
- to determine a vision, values and missions
