What is Facilitation?

Facilitation is the art of creating a social container in which group transformation is inevitable. That container may be a meeting, a team training, a retreat or a coaching relationship. Facilitation is often used for: strategic visioning, addressing organizational culture, delivering trainings to adult learners, and conflict resolution.

Annie-Rose’s facilitation helped us to re-engage with the leader within us, and use the workshop as a medium to communicate with our colleagues on multiple topics ranging from preferable working styles to strategies that can make us work together more efficiently than before.

I took away from this workshop the understanding that even though we are all doing similar work, that doesn’t mean that we think the same way, or that there’s a right or wrong way of doing things, everybody is right as long as they are getting things done.

One of my most important turnarounds was my attitude toward change. Change has always been a point of stress in my life, always worrying that the life behind the door of the future would not stack up to life in the present. After much discussion with Annie-Rose and reflecting on my experience with change, I came to learn that change is a positive, exciting, and essential part to life. I now look forward to the unknown that comes with altering life events and the ability to explore different experiences and mold them into what I want them to be.
