Check out our Fee for Services table located on the Services page and contact staff for an individual case analysis and quote.. When should I bring in a facilitator?.. Facilitate literally means to make easier.. Intervene means to enter into an ongoing system of relationships.. Generally it is more difficult to resolve a problem that has become entrenched in the group s history.. As soon as you notice the group communication becoming more difficult, you should contact a facilitator and discuss the potential approaches.. You may find a shorter intervention will make things easier for everyone.. How does a facilitator really help?.. Bringing a professional facilitator to your group is intervening in the group s normal process and signals that things are becoming complex.. The act of organizing a meeting, keeping participants on task and moving in an efficient and respectful manner, takes a lot of concentration.. By filling that role, a professional facilitator will free up energy within the group and allow all members to bring much deeper focus to the subject matter.. A trained facilitator will bring organized process into the group atmosphere and has the potential to shape a more efficient and effective future for the group dynamics.. Does the facilitator need to be an expert in the subject matter?.. It can be helpful to hire a facilitator who is familiar with your field.. We find it to be particularly helpful to be conversant in the vocabulary, acronyms and relationships of the various stakeholders.. It also makes the process move faster and more efficiently if the facilitator knows the context in which the decisions must be made.. For example: applicable federal regulations, jurisdictions and charges of stakeholders.. During the case analysis the facilitator should determine a timeframe for becoming sufficiently educated in the subject matter to conduct the facilitation.. Our Facilitators Provide:.. Structured meeting facilitations.. Focus on the future.. Collaborative processes.. Creative ways to get to a solution.. Process design.. Group decision making.. Strategic plans.. Public dialougue..
