What do facilitators do?

This is an often asked question and one that is answered graphically and succinctly in this short (3:57) You Tube video from IIAFC. Seat belt on, click and let’s go!

Question: Why are facilitators like Penguins?

Answer: When in the water, they spend seventy five percent of their time under the surface!

For both penguins and facilitators what lies beneath the tip of the iceberg is a world of discovery. The tip of the iceberg represents what we know and can touch in any session, the content, the methods being used to support participation and the tools to help clarify, define, support thinking, decision making and planning. What we cannot see are the elements that might be motivating participants to contribute or not, agree, disagree, challenge or remain silent for example. Facilitators consider what is under the surface as part of their meeting design and bring their skills and experience to support progress and process once they and the group dive in!
