Often groups of individuals or teams become so focused or involved in a problem, it may be difficult for them to think out of the box and find a solution. Facilitation is a process that helps groups of people to step away from the problems they face and look at them with a fresh, new and different perspective. This often leads to the discovery of innovative solutions.

The facilitation process typically includes :

  •   Define problems
  •   Brainstorm ideas
  •   Agree on solutions
  •   Finalize action plans

While a trainer teaches or instructs, a facilitator leverages the knowledge, skills, and expertise that exist within an organization, department, or team to capitalize on opportunities or resolve problems.

At Initiate, we work from the basis that the ideas people are most committed to and have the most enthusiasm and energy for are their own. Based on this, we design working sessions that are stimulating, interactive, energetic, promote full participation and most importantly produce actionable results.

We leverage diverse and effective facilitation tools to draw out problems and opportunities in unique ways. We leverage the group’s expertise to brainstorm a list of solutions using techniques like blue sky, future visioning, storytelling and mind mapping. Then we narrow down and identify the solutions that the group has the highest energy and commitment to pursue.

We have experience working with groups in the areas of strategy development, marketing plan development, co-operation between different teams or International Organizations, team building and communication, department planning, and project management. We can also facilitate team meetings, conferences, or seminars based on your organization’s specific needs. Contact us to learn how we can help your team develop innovative solutions to the challenges faced.

“Sometimes the situation is only a problem because it is looked at in a certain way. Looked at in another way, the right course of action may be so obvious that the problem no longer exists.”
