Facilitation is a leadership skill – it ensures everyone has a voice, all possible options are raised, analysed for potential, the discussion stays on subject and within agreed timescales. If conclusions are reached, actions, responsibilities and measurement standards are recorded and a review date set.



Facilitation is a central function for mediators – it is about managing a conversation for other people, who frequently in mediations would not wish to be having it, so that it is inclusive and constructive. Technically the facilitator should have no interest in the outcome, which for a team leader may be difficult to begin with. However it is an excellent way of preventing a leaders’ ideas always coming out on top, so ensuring they allow their team members to contribute fully, have their ideas tested and so grow in skill and confidence to the benefit of the team – and the leader.
