The 21st century brought unprecedented advancements in technology, connectivity, and diversity. that should help people work better together, but still time and money are wasted in bad meetings and everyone is drowning in tools and too much work. To solve collaboration problems leaders place too much focus on technology, workplace, or organisational structures, not on people's needs.
Facilitation capability puts focus on people and helps you identify what meetings are really needed, and how to design them for the people and context. When you have people who can facilitate collaboration you get psychologically safe and supportive environment that creates level playing field for all participants and high quality interaction and engagement that resolves conflicts and brings results fast.
Collaboration facilitation is important in any process that requires diverse group of people to come up with a desired result without being bound by the constraints of hierarchical structure.
This includes processes such as discovery, ideation, planning, team building, training and development, conflict resolution, or any other activity that requires bringing a group of people to gather to work things out and achieve specific results .
Colaboration facilitation is a balancing act in which facilitator focuses symultaneously on encouraging participants and buidling shared understanding (Wake) and driving the process to achieve the desired outcomes (Make).
If the facilitator focuses to much on encouraging participation, session might turn into an unregulated discussion that takes too much time without achieving anything meaningful. On the other hand, if the facilitator focuses too much on controlling the process, the participants might feel like their participation is stifled, thus making it harder to come up with the best solution.
Anyone can be a facilitator. You don’t need to hold any titles or have certain levels of experience in order to play the role of a facilitator. Being a good facilitator is a skill, and like most other skills, it can be learnt. But there are different levels of collaboration facilitation.
We learned that many leaders and managers strugle with facilitation, but some are comfortbale facilitating their teams in simple collaboration efforts that don’t require creative thinking, like team building or task planing. But if you want to facilitate collaboration for complex problem solving you need to have some other skills, like perspective coordination and contextual thinking.
On the other hand, leaving facilitation only to leaders and managers is proven to be difficult and not effective. Having someone who is not in the group’s leadership as a facilitator helps break down the constraints of hierarchical structure, thus making everyone feel more comfortable with sharing their opinions and ideas.
