What is Facilitation?

Facilitation (all rights reserved)

For me, facilitation is:
  • Eliciting information from people in a group setting.
  • Encouraging participation by people in a group.
  • Introducing new ideas to people in groups.
  • Motivating people to share ideas and information with others.
  • Going on a rollercoaster ride with a group.
It is a great honour to be invited to 'lead' the group; taking them on a journey ... together.

(Note:  I intentionally avoided reading up on other people's opinions on this topic, so I could give my own perspective.  I may need to come back and add more later.)
