group process facilitator
One who contributes structure and process to interactions so groups are able to function effectively. A helper and enabler whose goal is to support others as they achieve exceptional performance.

Group Process Facilitation

A way of providing leadership without taking the reins. A facilitator’s job is to get others to assume responsibility, to take the lead, and engage in meaningful collaboration.

-Facilitation At A Glance

Group Process Facilitator
group process facilitators
Group Process Facilitators:
  • Do not have all the answers, are not content experts
  • Stay neutral, if you must move out of facilitator role and into role as participating member of group identify that move.
  • Are responsible for room set up that supports effective teams
  • Listen; demonstrate that you are by using verbal and non verbal cues.
  • Paraphrase or clarify for the benefit of all members of the group.
  • Watch the time (or appoint a timekeeper)
  • Play “ping pong” redirect questions by sending to others rather than answering yourself
  • Use humor – appropriate humor!
  • Call and identify sidetracks
  • Encourage all group members to acknowledge dysfunctional behaviors as they occur!
  • Park it sheets – record all sidetrack items
  • Use the imaginary spell check button – spell creatively

Facilitators At A Glance

processes for groups
Processes for Groups

Everyone participate: Round Robin, Talking Chips

Set the stage

Focus Attention: How do you feel about being here today?

Check in: Something positive that happened in your professional life since the last meeting?

Check the group to see where it’s at: Round Robin

Check for agreement: Thumbs Up, Fist to Five

Get unstuck:

Look for commonalities, agreement

Identify polar points – What would it take for this to work for you?

Take a break – get up and stretch

Move on and come back to issue

Check to see if it can hold until the next meeting. Perhaps the group needs more information.
