Building awareness of facilitation
Facilitation is creating a space within which people can empower themselves. (IAF Member Dale Hunter)
Part of the IAF's work in Latin America and the Caribbean, and elsewhere in the world, is to build greater awareness and understanding of professional facilitation and its benefits. Here is a short video (courtesy of the Instituto Internacional de Facilitación y Cambio) that helps to answer the question ¿Qué es lo que hacen los Facilitadores? or "What is it that facilitators do?.
The facilitator’s neutrality is her strength. It enables her to challenge, guide and empower groups in their collaborative thinking. (IAF Member Ulla Wyckoff Tomlinson, CPF)
