IAF India Chapter
5TH IAF India Annual Conference
7 – 8 December, 2018
L&T Leadership Development Academy, Lonavala
Facilitating the group to create powerful connections and insights beyond the ordinary/obvious requires engaging both; thoughts and emotions – the mind and the heart. When both; the Mind and the Heart are engaged together, it brings about a holistic shift in perspective, inspiring voluntary change.
Group Process Facilitation
The art of group process facilitation plays a vital role in the working of businesses, governments and communities across the globe. Facilitation is about process ‑ how you do something ‑ rather than the content ‑ what you do. A facilitator is a process enabler, someone who makes a process easier or more convenient. Facilitation is about movement ‑ moving something from A to B. Facilitation makes it easier to get to an agreed destination.
Facilitation makes a positive difference in -
- Tapping group creativity
- Enabling organisational change
- Resolving group conflicts
- Building consensus to enable decision making
- Strategic planning in an all-inclusive approach
- Sensitising about diversity
"A facilitator is someone who engages in the activity of facilitation. They help a group of people understand their common objectives and assist them to plan how to achieve these objectives; in doing so, the facilitator remains "neutral" meaning he/she does not take a particular position in the discussion. Says Raju Mandhyan, Chair of International Association of Facilitators, Philippines, "A process facilitator, like a midwife, does not own the intentions, the actions and the outcomes. He just helps deliver the baby.”
The IAF India chapter had a modest beginning in 2010. Today it has grown organically across five city hubs namely Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, Pune and Delhi. With almost 200 active members who promote the power of facilitation in their respective locations by – building unique bridges to make facilitation a way of life for diverse groups to experience group synergy.
