During this era of digital revolution, complexity, ambivalence and uncertainty have become a permanent part of our lives as managers and leaders. Companies and organizations have realized that optimization, control and driving decisions from the top down are not the proper tools in change processes. In the Anglo-Saxon part of the world facilitating has widely been established and has gained acceptance in the past two decades. Now facilitating is increasingly being recognized in Germany as a new philosophy of participation at decision-making levels.
The main idea is that authenticity, emotion, trust and mindfulness play key roles in facing the unknown in change processes.
When can facilitating support change processes in your organization?
If your company is planning a change or if a current process is stuck
If your organization feels an invisible “block” in the air that cannot really be identified
If a liberating new start should reach everyone
If your team feels an undefined conflict is growing
If your strategy has not been internalized by others
Facilitating supports everyone involved in a complex change process to trust their own intuition, to sharpen their perceptions and to develop their own personal attitudes, so that in the course of the change process they will take responsibility and constructively shape the process together.
