Guiding a Group Consciously and Compassionately

Guiding a Group Consciously and Compassionately

What Can Be Facilitated?

Almost anything that requires interaction, discussion, decisions, or the resolution of disputes among two or more people.

To establish trust a facilitator has at least some degree of neutrality. That may vary depending on the situation and type of meeting.

In some meetings, the facilitator is almost a full participant, though maintaining neutrality when moderating an important issue will facilitate that process. 


A Facilitator can be used for:

  • a staff meeting

  • a committee meeting

  • a board meeting

  • mediation between two parties

  • a family dispute

  • a conflict resolution session for a group
