Professional Meeting Facilitation
A meeting without a facilitator is about as effective as a team trying to have a game without a referee. This applies even more to decision making processes, where a neutral facilitator handling the process is critical to success. Sometimes a resource person may take over the role as a facilitator, besides his other functions within the organization. This “double hat” role between a facilitator and content expert may be demanding and might often confuse participants if it is not communicated well.
A facilitator helps participants to collaborate as they explore a topic or issue. The goal is to encourage participants to think productively and ultimately to articulate key ideas, to ask vital questions, to uncover variables, to find solutions, and/or to identify productive actions. The facilitator may or may not be a content expert but must understand how to draw out the best thinking of a group.
