Integral Facilitation

Effective Outcomes Achieved Efficiently

There is an increasing need for the use of professional facilitation to ensure that planning meetings and workshops are conducted in an efficient manner. Using professional facilitators to achieve useful outcomes with as little conflict, debate and meanderings as possible saves organisations and workteams considerable time and money.

Effective facilitation enables people to hear the viewpoints of others, to shift from a fixed mindset, and to work through issues that may have been blocking communication and/or productivity. It also helps determine clear actions with timelines, responsibilities and resources.

Integral Development facilitators have helped organisations to arrive at timely and effective outcomes in the following areas:

  • Strategic planning
  • Process improvement (eg Improving staff recruitment and retention)
  • Problem-solving (eg Managing poor performance)
  • Scenario planning
  • Cultural change
  • Community consultation
  • New ideas generation (eg New product development, implementation and innovation)
  • Environmental/sustainability planning

The Integral Framework for Facilitation

The difference in the way we facilitate is that the process is based on the Integral Facilitation Model where the 4 quadrants are uniquely translated and implemented through:

  • A clear scope, thorough planning and achieving the desired objectives
  • Managing the feelings, valuing participation and confronting where necessary
  • Encouraging ‘real’ team development and leader commitment
  • Using the best facilitation techniques, a structured approach, with appropriate timing, materials and costs
