THE FACILITATING PROCEDURE:

Facilitating is a highly dynamic interaction - goal and action oriented; a dialogue outside your comfort zone in a safe environment. It is centred on you and your challenges; in the tension between where you are and where you want to be; “bringing vision into action”. Below are the different phases explained.

A INTRODUCTION
A meeting between the facilitator and the client to:
• agree on areas for facilitating and expectations
• discuss confidentiality
• agree on work to be done before the process starts (personality typing, MBTI, 360 etc)
• formulate a contract (to be signed before the first session)

B FIRST SESSION
Facilitator and client will have a discovery session comprising:
• working through the type test
• building a working relationship
• identifying areas where the client wants to move forward
• agree on what the client wants to work on
• walk through “since last meeting” document
• leave the session with an action agenda

C THE FOLLOWING SESSIONS
This is the direction to progress:
• facilitator and client meet 1,5 to 3 hours each month during 6 to 12 months
• go through the “since last meeting” document
• use probing and challenging questions to open new mind paths
• get new perspective when the client has left the comfort zone
• explore barriers there the client is “holding back”
• support new behaviours and actions
• maintain a structure
• provide a non-judgemental environment
• homework/action agenda (reading, acting, listening, watching….)

D CLOSING SESSION
As in C + the following:
• review the outcome
• review what has been learnt
• starting “my journey” a post-development plan
• follow up meeting; agree on a date
